Asian Night Fever

Saturday evening we hosted a dinner party and I wanted to do it a little different because I know that my friend likes Vietnamese food and we felt inspired by all the flavours and colors of the east (and also by watching The Hairy Bikers' Asian Adventure, so funny). We decided on 3 little starter dishes. We made homemade fish cakes with beautiful salmon, pollack and oven baked potatoes, home made dim sums filled with pork mince, cilantro, chili, garlic and fish sauce & a sashimi of pollack with granny smith apple, green beans and a syrup of wasabi & lime.
For main we had pork belly with a herby glace and an aubergine mango soba noodles salad.
All this accompanied by a few Thai imported beers.
Dessert was very light, a pineapple carpaccio with mint & coconut blossom sugar.

 When we were young Sven and I had lots of fun watching the Eurovision Song Contest together and this Saturday this also happened to be on television. So after dinner we jumped into the sofa and did some oldschool commenting on all the songs and outfits. We really had a good time on Saturday! He still cannot make a straight face for the photo! Some things never change! Luckily!
