Nougat, salted peanut caramel and milk chocolate tart

What's not to love about a Snickers bar? All the elements are here, but if you don't feel like making your own nougat, you could always scatter some diced nougat in the base of the tart instead. The caramel is dark, verging on bitter, while a good whack of salt cuts through some of the sweetness - extra roasted salted peanuts on top can only be a good thing.

Method

  • 01
  • Place Shaoxing wine and soy sauce in a bowl, season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground white pepper and combine well. Add pork and stir to coat in mixture, then cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • 02
  • Cook noodles in boiling salted water until just tender, drain, then refresh under running water and drain again. Place noodles in a bowl, sprinkle with a little extra oil to prevent sticking and toss to coat.
  • 03
  • For sauce, heat oil in a wok, add preserved vegetables and stir-fry over medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant. Add pork mixture and stir-fry over medium-heat, using a wok charn to crumble meat. Add wine and stir-fry for another 2-3 minutes or until meat is brown and crisp. Add remaining ingredients and bring to the boil. Divide room temperature noodles among bowls, spoon sauce over and serve immediately scattered with green onions and chillies, if using.

Note Precooked noodles may be used but these only need brief reheating in boiling water.
