Slimming Summer Salad...
We had had some lovely summery days and these days call for salads... honestly that is the only reason...
Well maybe... because the doctor is on my back to lose weight and reduce my cholesterol etc...
So Asian salads seem to be the best way to go and this one was pretty good...
400g fillet steak
marinated in 4 tbls of hoi sin sauce for a couple of hours.
200g glass noodles soaked in boiling water then refreshed with cold water and drained
I lebanese cucumber, thinly sliced
1 cup corriander leaves
2 long red chillies finely sliced
4 tbls crushed roasted peanuts
2 tbls fried shallots
3-4 tbls grated palm sugar
juice of 2 limes
3 tbls fish sauce
Fry off beef. (I had sliced this thinly and it only took a couple of minutes)
Put cucumber, chillies, corriander and noodles into a bowl and dress with the dressing. Add your beef and mix it all up as best you can. Lastly scatter peanuts and shallots over the top and munch away....
