HFG tip

  • When choosing fish sauce aim for less than around 6000mg sodium per 100ml. We used Select Fish Sauce with 4190mg per 100ml. There are variants with over 10,000mg per 100ml and using one of these would dramatically increase the sodium in the recipes.
  • To use lemongrass, first remove the tough outer layer by flattening the stalk with the flat side of a large knife, then finely slice the remaining stalk.
  • To make cucumber ribbons, pull a vegetable peeler down the length of a cucumber. Chill ribbons in iced water for 20 minutes to allow to curl.
