5 shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp sesame seeds

• Marinate beef and mushrooms with soy sauce, minced garlic, sugar, sesame oil, sesame seeds and black pepper for at least 30 minutes.

250g dried sweet potato vermicelli
8 prawns, peeled
8 scallops, de-shelled

salt to taste
2 eggs, whites and yolks separated

• Grill the prawns and scallops, searing lightly, cool, then cut in half lengthwise.
• Blanch spinach and squeeze to remove excess water.
• Stir-fry carrot and spring onion until tender, seasoning with a pinch of salt to taste.
• Fry egg yolks into a thin omelette. Repeat with egg whites. When cool, cut both egg omelettes into thin strips or decorative shapes, for garnish.
• Stir-fry beef and mushroom until the beef is cooked to a medium doneness.
• In a large bowl, combine vermicelli with 1 tbsp vegetable oil, 1 tbsp sesame oil, 3 tbsp soy sauce and 1 tbsp sugar.
