This is the stir fry I promised last week. Apologies for the delay, and also apologies that it’s really a pretty obvious recipe.
Marinate chicken in soy sauce, oyster sauce, lime juice, chilli, and sesame oil. Fry shallots, garlic, and spring onions in flavourless oil in a wok. When they’re soft, add chilli and grated ginger, and stir for another couple of minutes.
Add the chicken, a little more flavourless oil, sesame oil, soy sauce, and oyster sauce. Cook for about 5 minutes, then throw in whatever vegetables you want. My favourites are red peppers, mange tout, broccoli, and courgette. Stir stir stir. I like to add toasted cashew nuts at this point as well (maybe that’s too much protein, I don’t know)
When everything is lovely and cooked, add toasted sesame seeds, cooked noodles, the juice of 2 limes, and a huge handful of chopped coriander.
One final stir, then eat in a big bowl, with chopsticks, and keep the rest in a tub to eat cold for lunch the next day. Yum.
I had mine with lovely Leffe. Ace.
When I get back to reality I’ll post some French stories. There are some good ones.
