    Ian Snell's Note:

    This is a recipe I adapted from a dish that Neil Perry (Australian Restauranteur) does rather well. I prepared it for a group of friends in the Woodstock railway station,(near Cowra, NSW Australia). They actually live in the fully restored 120 year old station and operate an art gallery from there. It was a big hit with no leftovers. I'll make more next time. This recipe is a pleasant mix of new Australian style cuisine with a distinct Asian influence.
