This looks tasty and very pleasing to the eye as well! Do you have a recipe or two that we can put in the recipe-only version of the Son of a Sea Cook that I am working on? The plan is to feature recipes that we have collected and concocted on our travels plus ones that we have been given by friends (with the credit given in the text of course...)

Raw Fish (VERY FRESH) Sliced very finely
Sushi Rice
Rice Vinegar
Soya Sauce

Cook the rice according to instructions, it needs to be really sticky, I add sugar and rice vinegar to my rice when cooling.

Shape rice and put your raw fish on top and serve with Soya Sauce and Wasabi !

Pad Thai

If you like noodles, You will like this one its soo easy that is if you can get the Sharwoods Pad Thai Noodles, If not you can use flat rice noodles.

1 x Tbsp Sunflower Oil
1 x Packet Sharwoods Ready to Wok Pad Thai Noodles
1 x Red Chilli
2 x Garlic Cloves Crushed
2 x Tbsp Oyster Sauce

1 x Chicken Breast or you can have Prawns or Pork
2 x Cups of Cabbage (finely sliced)
Handful Beansprouts
2 x Tbsp Spring Onion
Crushed Peanuts (optional)
Crispy Onions (optional)

I use a wok for this recipe..
Heat Oil in a Pan, Cook egg like an omlete then take out of pan and chop into pieces when cooled..

Add Chilli and Garlic and Stirfry for a few minutes and add your meat until brown, then add Cabbage just until wilted add your noodles, once the noodles have broken up start adding your sauces Fish, Oyster and Sugar until dissolved then add your Beansprouts, Spring Onion for a minute !!

This should take less than 10 minuts as the wok has to be extra hot ! Put some crispy onions, crushed peanuts and if you like it hot like james some extra Chilli Flakes !

We learnt to cook this dish in Thailand when we did our cooking course in Chang Mai and havent stopped cooking it since then.
