The most delicious Asian meatballs

Mix all the ingredients and mix well with a hand mixer - preferably 5-10 minutes. Refrigerate for at least an hour. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Form small, round meatballs and dump them into the water. When they float to the top, you can set them aside on a plate.
When all the meatballs have been pre-cooked, you finish frying them on a pan. When they have got a delicious roast crust all around, you finally add the Asian-inspired BBQ and let the meatballs be wrapped well in it.

Authentic, Vietnamese-inspired vinaigrette

There isn't much hocus pocus here - just mix all the ingredients and season with salt and pepper.

The salad

Bring water to the boil and put the noodles in it. Turn off the heat and leave the noodles for a few minutes until they are soft. Then pour off the water and rinse with cold water.

Place the noodles in the bottom of a dish and put carrots and lettuce on top, then add the vinaigrette. Then place the meatballs on top and garnish well with coriander, mint, chilli and peanuts. A voila!
