Seasoned Top Shell

I always a can of top shell in pantry. My husband loves it and so do some of my friends. It's a common side dish you will enjoy with a mug of ice cold beer.

It's pretty easy to prepare so if you have friends dropping by unexpectedly, you can always serve this. Maybe, you might have to stock-up 2 cans instead. ;)

  • 6 pieces Top Shell, sliced
  • 1 red Chilli or Chilli Padi, sliced
  • 2 Shallot, sliced
  • 1 sprig Coriander, chopped
  • 2 leaves Lettuce, sliced

  • Juice of 3 Calamansi
  • a dash of Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sesame Seed Oil or Olive Oil

How to do it:
  1. Place sliced lettuce in a dish and set aside.
  2. Mix seasonings well.
  3. Add in the sliced top shell and the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Toss well.
  5. Place the seasoned top shell on the lettuce and serve.
