asian slaw recipe

Red onions and carrots last a long time. Red and White cabbage heads last a long time in the fridge ( especially if you wrap them in tin foil and leave in the salad drawer). A packet of smoked salmon usually also has a good long sell by date on it. 

We usually have all these in the kitchen.  So it’s one of our favourite, go to, kinda healthy, fish and chips ( chips of veg ahaha ) replacement.

  First… the short, to the point, recipe !

 

Does it bother you when you have to scroll for miles and miles down a page to get to the actual recipe. Well, not this time !

I wish I could remember where I originally found this recipe. When I do, I will certainly credit it, because it’s so yummy ! It’s a huge portion but it would serve 2 very greedy, or 4 ‘normal’ people. ( We’re greedy if this is the whole meal ).

Ingredients for the slaw:

  • ½ head red cabbage, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded green cabbage
  • ½ cup shredded carrots
  • ½ medium red onion, chopped

Ingredients for the sauce:

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced ginger
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons (¼ cup) low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • optional… a handful of sesame seeds

Instructions ( just 2 !)

  1. Add red cabbage, green cabbage, carrots, and onion to a large bowl.
  2. Pour olive oil, ginger, garlic, brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, and sesame seeds into a Bell jar, Mason jar, or even a well washed jam jar with a tight fitting lid. Shake until well combined. Pour ½ over vegetables and toss until well coated. Pour up to ½ onto the smoked salmon and marinade.  Serve with leftover dressing on top, if needed.

Kitchen tools


chopping board

sharp knife for slicing

large box or hand grater for grating

Jar with tight fitting lid 

( Not everything needs a hand blender needed  ! )

You don’t need to spend a fortune on a good kitchen knife !

or research forever then be disappointed… 

These are the knives we use. Paul discovered them first in the Raymond Blanc’s kitchens when he did some great cooking courses at Le Manoir aux Quatres. They’re real workhorses. We love them, and even took them with us in our new simple life. 

We know so many people that have bought very costly, extra-special knives … only to be disappointed. So, I’m really glad to finally be able to share this one with you because I LOVE chopping. It’s so therapeutic… well, maybe chopping for up to 4 people is ! And, these ones won’t break the bank. 

My favourites are the largest which I use most, and are best for chop chop chopping, or I use the heel of it to crush garlic I also love the small most flexible one to get round corners and inside skins.

 

You don’t need to spend a lot for a nice mason or ball jar too, you can even use a well cleaned jam jar for this recipe.

Cook's and Chef's Knife Set

Nicely balanced knives. People look so hard and spend so much on knives, but these have never failed us.

So we brought them with us !

Apart from these, we add some little kitchen devils for completion.

If you want to get them separately, just click through to Amazon, and check out what’s available. 

 

Ball Jars

These are so useful. 6 Wide Mouth Mason / Ball Jars (500ml / 16 oz ) with Airtight lids and Bands. Great for storing dried beans and spices. Perfect for sous vide, canning, pickling, preserving and fermenting fruits & veggies for up to 18 mths. Freezer, microwave and dishwasher safe. Has a lovely label line for writing dates & contents. We like the wide mouth ones so you can get your hand blender or big ladles in ! The lid has a special dull sound so you can test if it’s sealed fully. Also a gorgeous vintage decorative look so you can have them on an open shelf… as a wee flower vase, or for putting gifts in ! Use it for anything – your overnight oats, cocktails, smoothies, desserts, salads etc.

Enjoy  !
