Sesame, Eggplant and Noodle Salad

Soft noodles + roasted eggplant in a sweet chilli-spiked sauce.

I bet if you asked anyone who came to our place for lunch in the 90s, they would remember this dish. I rediscovered it some years ago after searching through my messy and huge unfiled random recipe file.  I’m not sure if I should say ’embarrassingly’ or rather just ‘ironically’, this outstanding recipe came from a Kikkoman ad in a magazine – I think it must have been my first foray into ‘Asian’ cooking long, long ago. But guess what’s back on the menu now?

Many of you know I have been on the growing 'don't buy Tassie salmon' bandwagon since reading Richard Flanagan's book Toxic about a year ago. It was shocking to see the state of the industry, and even more shocking that we thought we were eating something that was really good for us. This just-released video has strengthened my resolve (which I have to admit was waning as I am not sure how much impact we have all had) to continue and to spread the word.

Please share this post, or any post supporting this stand, it is such an important message - especially for those of us who used to love eating Tassie salmon.

And sadly this also applies to all the smoked salmon from Tassie including @huonsalmon which we all used to love.

Click on the link in our profile for the original @neighbours_of_fish_farming video. 🙏🏻 @joostbakker for posting the video, that's where I first saw it.

I have been buying NZ king salmon @regalsalmonnz @orakingsalmon and @alpinesalmon (Mt Cook, NZ, can buy at @harrisfarmmarkets) and exploring many other fish options. Check out @goodfishproject for an excellent guide to what we should be buying here in Aus.

We also need to rally the big buyers in Aus - @colessupermarkets @woolworths_au to stop buying farmed Tassie salmon until the industry has been cleaned up.

(btw when we were in beautiful Tassie last year, not one restaurant we went to served salmon. Doesn't that say something?)
