This Asian inspired dish is super easy to throw together and its laksa-like sauce has a fresh lemon coconut taste with just a hint of chilli.
Note on canned coconut milk: Canned coconut milk used for cooking has been tested by Monash University and it is only low FODMAP in 80ml (1/3 cup) serves. This means you need to measure out your coconut milk carefully to avoid a high FODMAP serve.
Check the crushed ginger does not contain garlic. Crushed ginger is grated ginger that has been preserved in a jar. You can swap it for fresh ginger if you prefer.
Fresh lemongrass is found with the fresh herbs in the chilled section of the vegetable aisle. Avoid using lemongrass paste as it often contains lactose or onion/garlic powder.
Buy a bunch of green onions/scallions with long green tips. You can use the green tips of the green onions/scallions (which are low FODMAP) and not the white stem when cooking.
Peanuts are low FODMAP. You can buy salted or roasted peanuts but just remember to check for high FODMAP ingredients like onion, garlic, and honey.
Crushed/pureed red chilli is just fresh red chilli that has been pureed into a paste (usually with a bit of salt and a preservative). Often you can find it in jars in the supermarket. If you can't find it, then you can replace it in the recipe using finely chopped mild red chilli.
If you are highly sensitive to gluten, check all packaged products, processed meat (like bacon), nuts, seeds and dried fruit do not contain a warning for trace gluten. If you are just on the low FODMAP diet you do not need to worry about this.
