Greek meets Thai

A culinary triumph last night: cooked chicken strips in peanut oil, then added chopped shallots and a concoction of 2 tablespoons of fish sauce, 1 teaspoon of brown sugar, 1 tabsp of lime juice and a finely chopped kaffir lime leaf. That was the Thai part.
Then I threw together a salad of Ron’s lettuce leaves, quartered grape tomatoes, sliced home-baked capsicum, sundried tomatoes and crumbled organic Lemnos feta cheese. That’s pretty Greek I reckon.
Put the two together in a large bowl and served up. Yum! (bit surprised that it worked actually). And we had all the ingredients without a special shopping trip. (Keeping kaffir lime leaves in a zip-lock bag in the freezer ensures a reliable supply of moist leaves).
