Recipes using Sambal Oelek?

I bought a jar of this paste last week and I haven't got a clue what to do with it. I looked for recipes online and found very little.
I was thinking of making an Indonesian chicken curry with this. I've got loads of spices, herbs and vegetables. Does anyone have a good recipe to share?
Thank you! I haven't got any halibut (and it certainly is quite pricey here too) but I can draw some inspiration from this recipes to rustle up something with the chicken breasts I've got and maybe some coconut milk. I hope the experiment turns out well...
I mix it with tuna fish (canned) along with the mayo and some other things like, scallion and cilantro a squeeze of lime. Slather it on large flat bread, place green ruffled lettuce or butter lettuce, carrot slivers, and roll it up. Then slice. You can eat it like a sandwich or make smaller slices for apptetizers bites. Please don't ask me the amounts, I just mix it till I get the consistency and taste I like. (roll it up tight with plastic wrap, then slice)
It also works with chicken or baby shrimp.
