  1. This sounds so delicious Amanda. I love noodle bowls but haven’t made them enough. I love the flavors of garlic, lemon grass and sesame oil in this one. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks Michelle. I can’t resist those flavours either, although it’s so difficult to get lemongrass here. I did grow my own for a while but I use lots of lemon zest if I’m stuck!

    I love the tuxedo sesame seeds!! Looks so delicious! Where do you find fresh coriander??

    1. Amanda says:

      Thanks Aleka, we grow coriander in pots but are lucky in that even the tiny supermarket in rural France now stocks it. We can buy it frozen too.

  3. Mmm. I love seafood and this shrimp and squid salad looks yummy! I can’t wait to make it for hubby!
