Did you know 'hoisin' means 'seafood'? And yet it neither contains seafood nor is traditionally served with seafood. Either way, we love it. From our first experiences of crispy pancakes to wonderful hoisin stir-fries, it remains a firm favourite. Try subbing the pak choi for gem lettuce or pair with brown rice and greens for a healthy lunchbox.
