  • 1 lb turkey fillets cut into thin strips
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 3 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove finely chopped
  • slice of fresh root ginger 1 cm (1/2 inch) thick, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 4 tablespoons chicken stock
  • 12 fresh lychees shelled
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • salt and pepper
  • julienne strips of spring onion to garnish


  • Dip the strips of turkey into beaten egg, shaking off the excess, and coat lightly in sesame seeds.
  • Heat the olive oil in a shallow pan; add the onion and garlic and fry for 2 - 3 minutes.
  • Add the ginger and the strips of turkey and fry until the turkey is evenly coloured. Pour over the pineapple juice and stock and simmer for 5 minutes, covered. Add the lychees and lime juice and season well to taste.
  • Stir well, then simmer, covered, for a further 4-5 minutes. Serve, garnished with spring onion strips, on a bed of Chinese noodles.
  • The stones can be removed from the lychees before adding to the casserole but do this in a dish so that none of the fragrant juice is wasted.
