This week's dim sum snack was lotus root marinated in soya sauce, ginger, garlic, sesame oil and a little sugar. You should boil the peeled root slices in water for 5 mins with a little lemon juice or vinegar (so that they do not turn a grey colour). Then you plunge inot cold water and marinate in the mixture. You can mix in black sesame seeds too if you wish. Leave in the fridge and eat the next day. Keeps for a week in the fridge. This is a Korean recipe. For more info on the lotus root have a look here.
