Last updated: Jun 9, 2014 — Published: Jun 9, 2014 — By: Anita — 2 comments

Sambal mangga goes perfectly with grilled dishes, especially grilled seafood dishes like fish and shrimp. Using slightly underripe mango is best since the slight sourness in the mango makes this a truly refreshing sambal. If you need to amp up the sourness a notch or two, feel free to add some freshly squeeze lime juice to the sambal.
