12.05.08: Prawn and veg stirfry

Mixin' it up on a Monday: babycorn, carrots, Chinese cabbage, brocca, green onions, chili flakes and prawns tipped over rice noodles face of with a leaf salad dotted with avo and olives (come of them garlic-stuffed!).

HE SAYS: Long time since we had this, I enjoyed the baby corn which was blackened a little, giving them a sweet overtone but the rest of the veggies got lost among the strong flavour of soy sauce. Harissa was an unorthodox solution to this problem and notched it up from a 5 to a 7, while the salad's lemony garlic olives shot it from a 7 to an 8, in my humble a-pin-onion.

SHE SAYS: It had that hot-wok grilled flavour I was going for, but it was otherwise a little bland and improved mightily with a small dose of my ho-made harissa. Rice noodles were blameless and the salad encouraged casual picking out of the zesty olives.
