Ingredients

  • 400g cooked ham, in one piece or in thick slices
  • 4 spring onions, whites and greens separated
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 3 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp
  • 1 tbsp runny honey
  • a pinch Chinese 5-spice
  • 1/2  cucumber
  • 2 tbsp sriracha chilli sauce
  • 2 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • a couple of pinches chilli flakes
  • 1 large or 2 small baguette
  • leaves to serve  baby gem lettuce
  • to serve (optional)  Japanese mayo

Method

  • STEP 1

    Use two forks to finely shred the ham, or chop into small cubes. Thinly slice the onion whites, then shred the greens finely and leave in ice-cold water.

  • STEP 2

    Mix the sesame oil, hoisin, soy, tomato purée, honey and five-spice, then stir in the spring onion whites and ham.

  • STEP 3

    Cut the cucumber into long thin slices. Mix the sriracha and vinegar with a good pinch of salt and the chilli flakes, and toss through the cucumbers to coat. If you can, leave for 15 minutes to marinate.

  • STEP 4

    Split the baguette in half horizontally but not all the way through, and fill with the shredded ham, chilli cucumbers, drained spring onion greens, baby gem and mayo. Cut into 4 pieces to serve.
