Lettuce and Eggs Stir Fry
Sweet Salty Lettuce
Wow! What a surprise this recipe is…. Lettuce Sweet and Salty with Scrambled Eggs.
I had never tasted it before we made the video tutorial and frankly, as we were making it, I wasn’t looking forward to it! The pickled lettuce that forms practically half of the recipe looked particularly un-appetising prior to being cooked. In fact when I review the video tutorial (clip below) as I hold up the pickled lettuce it resembles a shrunken head!
The recipe has its origins in Northern Thailand in the Isaan region and has a rich salty sweet flavour with a lovely oyster sauce after taste. Much more enjoyable when eaten with rice and although can be eaten as a snack meal, it is more usually added to the table as a compliment to some other main courses. I give a few examples in the main recipe Lettuce Stir Fry.
