Nam jim is a classic Thai dressing that we’ve used as both a marinade and a sauce.

Ingredients

Fresh green chilli

2 whole, chopped

Garlic

3 clove(s), chopped

Green shallot(s)

3 individual, chopped

Lime juice

cup(s), (80ml)

Fish sauce

2 tbs

Brown sugar

¼ cup(s)

Fresh coriander

1 cup(s), leaves

Skinless chicken breast

630 g, (buy 700g)

Canola oil

1½ tbs

Fresh Singapore noodles

350 g

Lebanese cucumber

1 medium, halved lengthways, thinly sliced

Celery

1 individual, thinly sliced

Red capsicum

1 medium, thinly sliced

Bok choy

2 baby, thinly shredded

Oil spray

2 x 3 second spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Process chilli, garlic, shallots, ¼ cup (60ml) juice, fish sauce, sugar and half the coriander in a food processor until nam jim is smooth. Thread chicken onto 8 wooden skewers (see tip). Combine 1 tablespoon oil and 1/3 cup (80ml) nam jim in a shallow dish. Add chicken skewers and turn to coat.
  2. Lightly spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium-high heat. Cook skewers for 3–4 minutes each side or until golden and cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare noodles following packet instructions. Drain. Transfer to a large bowl. Add cucumber, celery, capsicum, bok choy, ¼ cup (60ml) nam jim and remaining coriander, juice and oil. Toss gently to combine. Serve skewers with noodle salad and remaining nam jim.

Notes

TIP: Soak skewers in cold water for 10 minutes before using to stop them burning during cooking.
