Marinated chicken wings with steamed rice and a side dish of dipping sauce that would “knock your socks off” (to quote my dear Grandma).
The condiment of chilli, hot pepper, salt and lime juice might be a distant cousin of Khmer lok lak sauce?
It marries well with the sliced cucumber and Vietnamese mint.
I have promised my waistline that on my imminent return to Australia, rice and myself shall become estranged – albeit temporarily.
