A warm chicken & Chinese sausage salad with the flavours of Asia


  • Soak the shiitakes in boiling water for about 30 mins. Then drain well, discard the stalks and slice the caps.
  • Also soak the noodles in boiling water for a few minutes. Then drain.
  • At the same time, gently poach the sausages in simmering water for 4-5 mins. Drain well and then slice.
  • Heat a little oil in a wok (or large non-stick pan) and gently sauté the shiitakes, red onion, carrots, celery and capsicum until just tender.
  • Add the chicken and sausage. Toss well and then add the noodles with the bean shoots and a good slurp of dressing. Turn off the heat and toss using tongs until well combined.
  • Then add the lettuce, peanuts and coriander with a little more dressing.
