      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1.  Turbo 1 second the cashew nuts with thermomix.

    Cut off stalks, peel the ginger, zest both limes and juice one. Add all ingredients with a splash of water and blitz on turbo until a spoonful paste. Season to taste. Spoon half into a nice bowl and drizzle with EVOO, put the rest aside.

  2. Chicken
  3. Line the chicken breasts up on a plastic board, alternating ends, and close together. Gently and carefully push the skewers through the breasts. Slice between the skewers to give you 4 kebabs. Thread any stray pieces on the ends of the skewers. To make the chicken crispier you can score it lightly on both sides. Scoop the rest of the satay mix into a roasting tray, add the chicken skewers and toss with your hands to coat, rubbing the flavour into the meat. Clear away the board and wash the knife and your hands. Drizzle the chicken with olive oil and season with salt. Put on the top shelf of the oven, under the grill, for about 8 to 10 minutes on each side, or until golden.

  4. Trim the bases off the little gemlettuces and get rid of any tatty outer leaves. Click the rest of the leaves off, halving the cores. Rinse in a colander, spin dry, then take straight to the table. Fill and boil the kettle.

  5. Put the nests of noodles in a large bowl, cover with boiling water and a plate, then leave to soak for 6 minutes. Put a medium frying pan on a low heat. Add cashews to the warm pan and leave to toast, tossing occasionally and keeping an eye on them as you do other jobs.

  6. Peel the red onion half and put in the thermomix with the chilli (stalk removed) and the stalks from the bunch of coriander. Speed 6 for 5 seconds, then put into a large serving bowl with 1 or 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and a few lugs of extra virgin olive oil. Squeeze in the juice of 1 lime, and stir in 1 teaspoon each of sesame oil and fish sauce. Mix well, then taste and correct the seasoning. Drain the noodles in a colander, refresh quickly under cold water, drain again, then add to the bowl.

  7. Toss your cashews and turn the heat under them up to high. Add 1 teaspoon of honey, mixing and tossing the nuts in the pan. Once dark golden, tip them into the serving bowl and add the coriander leaves. Toss everything together and take to the table with the bowl of satay sauce.

  8. Turn the skewers over, drizzle with a little runny honey and put back under the grill for 8 to 10 minutes.

    Roughly chop the coriander leaves and finely slice the chilli speed 4 for 4 seconds, if using. Put into little side bowls, take both to the table and put next to the lettuce.

    Take the chicken to the table with a bottle of soy sauce and a few wedges of lime for squeezing over. Let everyone build parcels of lettuce, noodles, chicken, a sprinkle of coriander and chilli and a squeeze of lime.

    I found this dish really nice.  Just need to put quantity of soy sauce in the satay.  I did find the noodle sauce had a bit too much lime, so I will use half a lime next time, but thats just my preference.   No 6.  Toss your cashews - I put them in a pan, but wasnt sure as it doesnt say.  It was enjoyed by all the family, thank you for sharing  tmrc_emoticons.)
