1
To begin, combine the fish sauce, minced ginger and garlic, Sambal, lime zest and coriander in a mixing bowl to create the dressing. Use half of the dressing to marinate the squid for 1 hour prior to cooking
2
To make the Vietnamese coleslaw, combine the sliced carrot, cucumber, daikon, shallot, Thai basil and coriander and dress with remaining dressing. Season with salt and pepper to taste
3
Preheat a sauté pan over a high heat, add 1 tsp grapeseed oil and heat until almost at smoking point. Sear the squid on each side for 45 seconds, then remove the pan from the heat and squeeze the lime juice over the squid. Rest the squid for 2 minutes then slice thinly
4
To serve, add a mound of coleslaw to each plate and place the slice squid on top. Garnish with a few more coriander leaves and serve immediately
