Chef's tip

« Add a little sesame oil to the dressing to give it a different flavour. »

  • Our chef's answer : Hi Clive. This recipe works best when made with raw garlic, chilli and ginger as it gives the dressing the freshest flavour. Cooking the ingredients will tone down the flavours to give a milder dish. Adjust the ratio of soy to peanut oil and lime juice according to taste.
  • Question from CLIVE : i notice that you have still not corrected the recipe. The garlic, ginger and chili are fried before being put in the liquid

    2. Most important the quantities of peanut oil and soy are wrong. The recipe says 10cl of soy to 5cl of oil, but in the demo it was 3 units of oil to 1 of soy and the same amount of lime etc
  • Question from CLIVE : are you sure this recipe is right? it sounds like you serve the garlic, chile and ginger raw. Also the quantities don't seem right for six people.
