Don’t judge a book by it’s cover! this may not the most attractive but it’s such a quick, tasty and easy meal to put together that exauds “the sea”. Offering a real boost of Iodine which so many of us are definient in. Served with a lovely fresh peice of poached white fish for a good portion of protein.
I’m not going to lay credit to the dressing recipe, this is all the work of http://www.seaweedrecipes.co.nz
I’ve choosen to add some julienne raw carrots and topped it off with some beautifuly fresh fish and afew rice noodles bedded underneath.
So, get the table laid and the hungry mouths ready because all this happens from scratch real quick.
Boil the kettle and place some Vermicelli noodles into a bowl, then cover with boiling water for 3-5mins until totally translucent and soft.
In another bowl place your dried Wakame leaves and cover with warm water.
Toast 2 tbsp of Seasame seeds, brown but not burnt! (easiest done in a small non stick fry pan,no oil needed)
Make the dressing by mixing all the following ingredients together:
1 tbsp seasame oil
2 tbsp rice vinegar
2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce or tamari (this may be replaced wth fish sauce)
1 tsp sweet chilli sauce
Put the fish in a fry pan with a little olive oil or butter, some lemon juice, I also like to add the zest and some cracked pepper. Lid on and cook for 5mins or until the fish is just cooked.
Drain the noodles and dish out.
Drain the wakame giving it a good squeeze to get out as much water as possible, add the seasame seeds and raw carrot if using, then pour over the dressing and mix well.
Viola! Enjoy some lovely fresh flavours and a light but filling meal.
