This is a really nice dish. Beautiful flavour combination. Instead of rice I chose to serve it with mung bean vermicelli with peanut butter and soy sauce which adds and twist of nuttyness.

Light and fresh dish that was exceedingly easy to prepare. I would perhaps add a red chilli for some heat next time, but otherwise the flavour combination was lovely.
