So today I’m happy to be creating another delicious dish using one of my favourite ingredients: biltong. The Chichester Biltong Company have come out with a new biltong flavour – teriyaki – which I thought would go perfectly in a crisp salad with flavours of the East. And it did. This recipe is quick to prepare and tastes absolutely amazing…your guests will be licking the bowl clean – we did!
Half a small iceberg lettuce, finely chopped
Half a small cucumber, sliced into batons
4 spring onions, shredded
1 large handful of fresh Thai basil
1 large handful of fresh mint
100g rice noodles, cooked and cooled
35g teriyaki biltong
1 large handful of peanuts
For the dressing
4cm fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
Juice of two limes
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 tsps fish sauce
1 tsp brown sugar
2 small dried chillis, crumbled
Lay all the chopped ingredients out on a platter, starting with a layer of lettuce and finishing with the noodles.
Then lay the sliced biltong on top and scatter the peanuts over.
Make the dressing and pour over. Toss the salad and serve.
