This quick little recipe is spot on for a light starter, or would work well with some thai prawn skewers or chicken yakitori.
Use the curved leaves from a chinese leaf lettuce, pile up with a handful of precooked thin rice noodles, a few shards each of sliced lemon grass, chilli and garlic, drizzle a teaspoon of fish sauce, and light soy sauce. Top with a tablespoon of sweet chilli garlic sauce and a little chopped coriander.
Place on a medium hot BBQ with a lid, I cooked mine on the Kamado Joe for 4/5 minutes. The base of the chinese leaf starts to char and the noodles have steamed through. Cheers Marcus
.....what a good.....simple dish!!. I hope you don't mind but I'll pinch your recipe to help me with idea's for the wife (and me) as she's on a Dr. Michael Moseley's 5:2 diet. In 6 months Stef has lost about 3 stone (19kg (ish)), but it's always difficult to come up with interesting dishes to keep this diet from going stale.
n.b.....The spin-off members from the now defunct BBC Food-forum..... at Wildfood.info... wildfood.info/viewforum.php?f=64 are trying to get a forum/menu together for the 5:2 diet but haven't quite got there yet.
