Enjoyed our Tuesday lunch at Mandarin. Had a few more dumplings. Going again on March 1,
So here is a Sichuan recipe. Sichuan food is not necessarily spicy I learnt from Confucious was a Foodie, but this one is.. Will have to go to the Korean store, not been there for a while as it's on King St. the road I have been complaining about because they have put train lines right down it and really made a screw up of the total road system.
Easy kelp salad with a spicy, sweet and sour taste.
200 g fresh kelp or soaked dried kelp
2 Tbs light soy sauce
1 Tbs black vinegar
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1-2 Thai peppers, cut into small pieces
2 scallions, finely chopped
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
3 Tbs vegetable cooking oil
1. Roll the kelp up and cut the kelp into thin shreds.
2. Then wash the kelp in cold water for 1 or 2 times to remove extra saltness.
3. Bring a large pot of water until boiling and then place shredded kelp in and cook for 2 minutes. Transfer out and drain.
4. Add light soy sauce, vinegar, chopped scallion, chopped chili peppers and chopped garlic. Heat Chinese cooking oil until hot and then pour the hot oil over the chopped garlic. Mix well.
5. Add some coriander.
