Directions

For the Hoisin Sauce

  • Blend together all ingredients in your food processor. Place in a pot over a medium heat, bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 -10 minutes; until thickened to your desired consistency. Set aside; store in the fridge if making in advance!

Allow “eaters” to assemble lettuce cups themselves or layer up Biltong, pepper, onion and cucumber in baby gem lettuce leaves, top with a slice or two of chili, drizzle with hoisin sauce , garnish with coriander and sesame seeds and serve with some fresh lime wedges for a squeeze of final freshness before digging in!
