  • 2. Add hoisin sauce, plum sauce, fish sauce and sesame oil and stir through. Continue to cook for 5 minutes.

  • 3. Remove from heat and mix through the vermicelli and coriander.

  • 4. Just before serving stir through half the carrot and cucumber using the remainder for garnish.

  • 5. Spoon mixture on to lettuce cups and serve on a large platter with lemon wedges.
