Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


Splash one tablespoon of olive oil in to a hot wok, add kangaroo mince and fry until browned.

Add garlic, ginger, chilli and mushrooms, stir fry for 1 minute.

Stir through oyster sauce and soy sauce.

Turn heat off and sprinkle through ⅔ of the spring onions, coriander and thai basil.

Serve in fresh, crisp iceberg lettuce cups and garnish with remaining herbs and a squeeze of fresh lime.
