Summer lunches always have me craving something spicy, something cold, or something with relatively few ingredients. This week's lunchbox just so happens to be a combination of all three. In summer, I tend to shop for less groceries—when tomatoes and corn are in season, who needs a multi-course meal?—meaning that my lunches are inspired by what's hanging around in the fridge.
I was craving a little pork satay, but decided to switch it up and use the last of my curry paste to create these quick skewers, broiled for about 3 minutes flat. A little bit of honey mixed in creates a caramelized crust, and lime zest adds some zip. I always keep vermicelli noodles in my pantry; they're ideal for leftovers, quick and easy to prepare, and soak up bold flavors well. I tossed in some especially spicy fresh radishes and a touch of sesame oil, and everything stayed fresh and flavorful until the next day.
