“This recipe for a quick, fragrant nam jim sauce is a brilliant stand-by. Make extra and keep a jar in the fridge to use as a dressing for lettuce or dim sum.” – Abigail Donnelly


  • 3 T sunflower oil
  • Woolworths brown mushroom steaks 4, torn
  • sticky rice, for serving (optional)
  • For the nam jim dressing:
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • 1 t soft brown sugar
  • 3 T lime juice
  • 1 T fish sauce
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 T furikake (seaweed sprinkle), for sprinkling

Cooking Instructions

1. Heat half the oil in a large pan over a high heat. When hot, fry half the mushrooms until golden brown. Try not to turn them until they’re golden. Repeat with the remaining mushrooms. Allow to cool.

2. Mix the nam jim ingredients. Pour the dressing over the mushrooms and sprinkle over the furikake. If you like, serve with sticky rice.
