This light dish is great as a Starter or as a Main course – if you add some Potatoes, Noodles or Rice to it.
If you don’t want to grill the Livers, you can fry them off, by heating a couple of tablespoons of Sunflower Oil in a pan, sealing the Livers over a high heat, and then add the Juices to the pan, before simmering for three minutes.
To Serve 4
2tbsp Dark Soy Sauce
2tbsp Dry Sherry
1 Garlic Clove, peeled and crushed
1tsp Fresh Root Ginger, grated
1tsp Sesame Oil
1tsp Clear Honey
1/4tsp Chinese Five-Spice Powder
350g Chicken Livers, thawed
125g Pak Choi, or Chinese Cabbage
1tbsp Coriander Leaves
1tbsp Sesame Seeds, roasted
1. Combine the Soy Sauce, Sherry, Crushed Garlic, Grated Ginger, Sesame Oil, Honey and Five Spice together, until well blended. Wash and dry the Chicken Liver, removing and discarding any discoloured parts, and toss the Liver in the Soy mixture, making sure it’s evenly covered. Transfer to a shallow dish, cover and leave to marinade for two hours.
2. After the two hours, transfer the Livers along with all the juices and remaining marinate to a foil lined pan, and grill as close to the heat for one to two minutes on each side, until browned and cooked through.
3. Place the Salad Leaves and Coriander, and toss in the Sesame Seeds and Juices from the Livers. Lay out on a plate, and place the Livers on top of the Leaves, and serve fresh from the pan.
