These salt & chilli mozzarella sticks are so easy to make and so utterly delicious, you’ll never want to eat them any other way.

The whole dish comes together in just a little over 10 minutes, perfect to quickly satisfy your salt & chilli cravings. If you really want to take things to another level, consider topping the whole thing with Chinese curry sauce, because why not?
- 1 small onion sliced
- 1/2 small carrot finely sliced
- 2 spring onions sliced
- 1 180g box frozen mozzarella sticks (12 sticks) I used Asda's own brand
- 2 teaspoons sunflower oil
- 1 teaspoon chopped garlic in oil
- 1 teaspoon salt & pepper seasoning or to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon dried crushed chilli flakes
- 2 teaspoons rice wine
Prepare your vegetables and set aside on a small plate.
Oven bake the mozzarella sticks according to their instructions, but reduce the cooking time by 1 minute.
When the mozzarella sticks are almost baked, heat a wok or large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the oil to the wok and swirl around the pan. Add the sliced onion and carrot and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the sliced spring onion and chopped garlic in oil and mix well.
Add the mozzarella sticks to the pan and season generously with the Chinese salt & pepper mix, stirring well to mix through. Add the crushed chilli flakes and rice wine, mix well once more and your salt & chilli mozzarella sticks are ready to serve.
