I know, I know, I said I was steering clear for a while, and varying our food, but I lied.
I also lied when I told Niamh that I never steal from the bank when playing Monopoly!
I used recipes from my new book, Cafe Vietnam, by Annabel Jackson.
The closest I can find for the recipes are here and here.
Mine doesn't look nearly as good as their photos, but I can assure you, it tasted great.
I served the squid on top of the congee. The stuffed squid, with the soft, comforting rice is such a brilliant combination, and one I wish I'd discovered sooner.
You'll be interested to know that I've bookmarked several non Asian recipes to try this week.
A week with no Asian food!
