    Looks lovely Victor

  2. Victor,

    That looks so yummy. Bet your mum enjoyed it.

    How goes it today? Remember to breathe and stay in the NOW. When you do that, the problem does not appear insurmontable.

    Thinking of you and wishing I could taste the dish.


  3. I’m going to try this tonight V…looks delicious. Will use Vietnamese mint which I have truckloads of…feel free to pick some anyone passing by!

  4. Victor – That looks so much like one popular laotian dish which called “larb”. I’m not sure if you tried the dish when you were in Laos.

    • Yes I did, See. It is my interpretation of Larb. I think in Lao, you put in fresh chopped dill too. A french influence, which makes it slightly different from a Thai versioin. Is that right?

  5. Victor, that looks so good. It does look very much like larb, especially the mint, spring onion, fish sauce and lime juice. I’ve not tried with ginger and I love the taste of ginger.

    • Nye – I love SEA food, so my cooking is influenced by that part of region. Love fresh herbs in a good SEA salad, esp Larb. 🙂
