My 'Indochine' Vietnamese Dinner

Indochine

This Month's Film: Indochine
Cuisine: Vietnamese

It was a busy day in my kitchen today as I prepared five Vietnamese dishes for my 'Indochine' dinner: Lemongrass Chicken Soup, Golden Fish Nuggets with Fresh Baby Greens and Mango Salsa, Stuffed Crabs, Shrimp Noodles, and Asian Stir-Fried Vegetable Medley.

I had originally intended to prepare the soup and salad as a separate meal, but I got caught up in too many other things to devote two whole days to the task, so I doubled them up and served them as a three-course meal. Fortunately both Rene and my son Will were here to help and enjoy the bounty on my dinner table. The photos and recipes will be posted at the end of the month.
