I am always making kebabs. I think the thing that most appeals is the simplicity and speed of cooking coupled with a never ending variation of flavours. For a weekday meal kebabs are perfect, as the preparation is rarely more than 10 minutes, and then you can walk away and get on with something else until ready to cook.
These kebabs are Japenese inspired Yakitori. The sweet sticky marinade keeps the chicken moist and delicious. The Asian Slaw served along side works fantastically well - with a real lift provided by the toasted sesame seeds.
The recipe would work very well cooked quickly on a BBQ.
The were extras left, so they made a delicious packed lunch the following day!

I admit, this is really a Thai dish. However, as I was rambling on about in the Duck Rendang blog, a lot of Malaysian food that you eat out is a fusion of Indian, Vietnamese and Thai.

Both times I ordered Duck Rendang it was served with a spicy pickled papaya salad along with several chutneys. Alas, I could not get hold of a papaya, so I gave it a go with mango. I have to say it worked very well, although next time, I would look for a firmer, less ripe mango - mainly for ease - the sweeter mango was nice against the chilli and lime! I would definitely consider giving making a lime chutney a bash in the near future as an accompaniment.
The dressing is a pretty standard Thai salad dressing, incorporating tangy, sweet and sour. It works so well against the fresh herbs and mango - how can you go wrong???!!!
I had leftover, so I turned this into a delicious lunch with almost no effort. It went down very well.
