Just a quick post to share an hors d’oeuvre recipe that is simple, quick to make, full of big flavours and is easy on the pocketbook to boot. It also has the added bonus of being relatively light and healthy in a season that is filled with rich and heavy dishes.

I managed to find the lemongrass, fish sauce and the sesame oil at the little Asian grocery store just down the street from my house but any big grocery store should carry all of the ingredients listed below.

This looks pretty in either red or yellow endive leaves and also works well nestled into baby romaine leaves.

These lovely light and fresh bites would pair well with beer, lemon drop martinis or any un-oaked white wine.

We are hosting the 2nd Annual Food Bank Fundraiser here at Kitchen Culinaire headquarters tomorrow night. It should be a fun evening filled with some lovely people, a cocktail or two, an array of hors d’oeuvres and we will also be demonstrating six different canapé recipes (including this one). We still have a few spaces left so if anyone out there is interested in stopping by please feel free to email Sarolta at events@kitchenculinaire.com for details.

It should be a busy day tomorrow but I have a great vegetarian canapé that I am hoping to post before the party. Stay tuned!
