Number of Servings: 4


    1/2 Chinese cabbage, shredded
    2 red peppers, diced
    150g rocket
    25g fresh coriander leaves, chopped
    10 spring onions, thinly sliced or chopped
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
    2 garlic cloves, crushed
    250g chicken livers, trimmed (if necessary) and each cut into 3-4 pieces
    1/2 tsp five-spice powder
    175g thickly sliced lean cooked ham, cut into short strips
    2 tbsp soy sauce
    4 tbsp dry sherry
    2 tbsp sesame seeds


Prepare the salad: Mix the Chinese cabbage, peppers, rocket and coriander leaves in a large bowl. Add half the spring onions and mix well. Divide the salad among four plates or pasta bowls.
Cook the chicken livers: Heat the olive and sesame oils in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the garlic, chicken livers and five-spice powder. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring and turning the livers until they are firm. Add the ham and cook for a further minute, turning and stirring gently.
Make the dressing: Add the soy sauce and sherry to the pan, and bring to the boil. Shake the pan and stir gently, taking care not to break up the livers. Let the mixture bubble for a few seconds so that the alcohol evaporates from the sherry. Add the remaining spring onions and remove the pan from the heat.
Serve: Divide the chicken liver mixture among the salads and spoon over the juices as a dressing. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and serve.
