Notes

This of dressing combines four main ingredient flavours: salty, sweet, hot and fragrant to make your Asian-inspired dish a winner. It’s a great base for stir-fries but has so many other uses. Dressing: Chill for up to 10 days. • Add a few extras such as lemongrass, coriander, sesame seeds or chilli to suit your taste. • Use this for beef salads or noodle dishes. • Works great as a marinade for sticky glazed chicken nibbles or marinated and seared salmon. • Use as a dressing for steamed greens or as a dipping sauce.
