warm gai lan salad with salted duck egg

I was smitten with this Jamie Oliver recipe for Broccoli and egg salad with anchovies, and thought a version of it with Asian flavors would work out well. It sure did! This is a gorgeous dish, and can be eaten as a hearty side dish or, eaten on top of rice, a meat-free entree!  

Warm Gai Lan Salad with Salted Duck Egg

1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
2 cloves garlic, grated
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
2 Tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
2 Tablespoons Fish Sauce
1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
2 teaspoons lime juice
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
Black pepper to taste

1 lb. Chinese broccoli (gai lan)
1 Tablespoon sesame seeds1 cooked salted duck egg, chopped fine1 mini sweet red pepper, chopped fine 

Combine the first 9 ingredients in a far with a tight-fitting lid and shake to combine. Rinse and steam the gai lan until just tender (the stems will still be crunchy) and bright green. Place on a platter and drizzle with the dressing. Sprinkle sesame seeds, duck egg and red pepper on top. Serve as a side with  the protein of your choice, or over rice as an entree.
