Bun Noodles

Earlier on in the day I set myself a challenge to make a Vietnamese Ngoc Cham sauce, and it turned out blimming good. It kicks a punch, full of red chillis, mixed with loads of lime juice, fish sauce, tamari, a sprinkling of coconut sugar, a dash of garlic oil and some water. Here it is served with brown rice noodles, finely sliced radishes, carrots, red cabbage, bean sprouts, mint, green chili’s and marinated ginger fried prawns. I’m kind of regretting chopping the chillis without gloves, just rubbed my eyes!
