Continuing my 15 minute dinners is one of Trish's recipes which I stumbled across whilst doing my usual blog browsing. You see, on top of my fascination for cookbooks, the Good Living on a Tuesday, food magazines, I do enjoying reading my food blogs. Trish's blog, Sugarlace was one I came across earlier this year and one which I head over to regularly for her recipes and witty commentary. I do recommend you pop by.
Anyway, back to dinner. The thing I love about this recipe is that all ingredients could be found in between my fridge, freezer and pantry. It's a most simple combination of fishballs, broccoli, carrot, garlic, onion, chilli flakes, tad of oil, rice vermicelli, fish sauce and light soy sauce.
You'll see a few black bits in there; I'm hopeless at controlling the fire on my stove. Oh well, the black bits seem to give the dish flavour.
Trish's recipe had clear vermicelli noodles. These rice vermicelli noodles work just fine.
It was great fun test driving this dish and it certainly checked all the boxes for me. It was quick to prepare, tasted great, between my brother and I, we managed to gobble it all up in the course of the night, hardly a mess to clean up and it's great that all the ingredients were just sitting there waiting for me to cook. It's also one of those recipes which you can easily improvise depending on what you have sitting around at home and better still, it's a recipe that you don't need to copy the recipe down for. Once you've made it, you can hardly forget. Tops to the lovely Trish for such a fantastic recipe!
