It's also crazily delicious as a dressing for a chunky salad, check out our recipe for Malaysian Gado Gado Salad. The lovely and supremely talented Ping Coombes is the brand ambassador for Jimmy's Sate Sauce and this is her recipe for the famous Malaysian street food dish, Seafood Char Kway Teow.
The cooking of this dish is all done in a matter of minutes, so make sure all your ingredients are prepped before you start. I prefer to soak the noodles in cold water, that way I can be less precise with the timing. If you're pushed for time, it's fine to soak them hot water for 8-10 minutes, just make sure you don't leave them in for too long.
Ingredients Serves 4 200g 5mm rice stick noodles, soaked in cold water for 30-40mins 2 tbsp Fussels Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil 1 White onion, thickly sliced 3 Spring onions, cut into thin strips 1 clove garlic, chopped 2 eggs, beaten 175g Mixed frozen seafood, fully defrosted 200g beansprouts
1. If soaking the noodles in cold water, place them into a deep bowl and cover them completely with cold water. Leave for around 40 minutes. If you are pushed for time, soak them in hot water for 8-10 minutes, drain, refresh under cold running water and set to one side. The hot water method may also require drizzling the noodles in a little rapeseed oil after draining to prevent them from sticking.
2. Mix together the ingredients for the sauce.
3. Heat a wok on a high heat, add the rapeseed oil and then throw in the diced onions. It's best to leave them cooking for a few moments as you want then to slightly char on the edges.
4. Add in the garlic and spring onions and keep frying for another minute.
5. Mix in the noodles and stir fry with the onion mixture for a further minute.
6. Now push the noodles to one side of the wok and pour the egg into the other side. The aim here is to make a rapid scrambled egg in the space you have in the pan. Once they have almost cooked through, fold them into the noodles.
7. Add in the mixed seafood and continue to cook, stirring all the time.
8. Pour the sauce over and keep stirring to mix everything together and the noodles are nicely coated with the sauce.
9. Finally, add in the beansprouts and mix for another 30 seconds. That's it, divide everything between 4 bowls and get stuck in. I like to serve with a wedge of lime.

Black pepper beef is one of those enduring dishes that's on every Chinese takeaway menu. This dish is super easy and really quick to bring together at home with just a few ingredients. Beef and black pepper are bold flavours and the combination will make your mouth water and your taste buds tingle.
Fried chicken is one of the true joys in life, it's heralded in many parts of the world and done differently wherever you go. The Japanese version is known as Chicken Karaage and it's absolutely delicious, particularly when dunked in some rich Kewpie mayonnaise, spiked with Japanese seven spice. I've served my Karaage with a simple slaw that I dressed with a really great sweet miso and sesame dressing and some plain rice.
If you've ever thought vegetarian food is slightly dull, hold on to your hats... this simple one-pot dish based on the humble chickpea absolutely packs in the flavour. The soft creamy chickpeas are cooked in a richly flavoured tomato sauce with a good splash of Fino sherry, dried chilli and smoked paprika. The dish is finished with roasted peppers, creamy aioli made with olive oil, a scattering of fresh parsley and a chunk of grilled sourdough.
