Glass noddles with artichokes and whelks in ginger lime sauce
[LOVE TIP] If you like linguine a la vongole, chances are you will love this twisted fusion version. Maybe you will think the link is remote but the idea was to have some vermicelli with iodized flavour and a sprinkle of fresh herbs.
I found some ravishing small artichokes on the market stalls yesterday. Also bought some whelks that we love to have in Vietnamese cuisine. Had some ginger.. and everything kind of combined perfectly and spontaneously. I used some glass noddles , the Korean version : japchae made of potatoes starch and gluten-free. Their consistency is totally addictive and they absorb the flavours of the broth in which they cook. So pleasurable!
