Took me a while to get round to cooking this as it looked a bit dull but it is Delicious!
my friend and i and had three helpings as it is light and very tasty. Great if on a diet and looking for something yummy . Any grilled fish/seafood can go on top too.

Simply delicious salad. Did for boxing day as part of a buffet & everyone loved it including the kids! Used bok choi instead of Chinese cabbage.

Delicious! Light and fresh. Didnt have any prawns so just baked a piece of salmon with some fish sauce, lime and ginger. Yum Yum!

This was simply divine! Added some squids with the prawns and shredded basil instead of coriander! My first Vietnamese venture and it was lovely - so fresh, fragrant and full of flavours!
