I was after something super fresh, satisfying yet not involving too much faff when it came to my Sunday dinner last weekend and this little Asian fusion number ticks all the boxes. 

Sober noodles, in a tahini, sesame oil and oyster sauce dressing, work a treat when tossed with juicy mango chunks, avocado and sugar snap peas, full of crunch, flavour and the perfect balance of sweet and savoury.

This irresistible mix then gets topped with a super easy to make tuna poke -chunks of raw tuna quickly marinated in rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and honey, some cucumber slices, sprouts and sesame seed and what you end up with is one bowl of absolute goodness! Seriously the perfect sort of supper for a balmy spring or summer eve and I am happy there are quite a few to come!

  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
