We have a Christmas day just the two of us sandwiched in between two days of family Christmas chaos with travel and lots of rich food. I want to make us a meal which contrasts this by being light and healthy, but exotic enough not to be something I make all the time.

Nothing roasted for sure, there will be way too much of that.

Fresh, wholesome.

Meat but not something like steak, which isn't really that different a flavour profile from roast beast.

Just one course with a side or two.

Flavour, flavour!

I was thinking lettuce wraps or maybe crystal rolls or tandoori skewers or something.

Help me decide? I can cook most things given a few recipes for guidance and have easily available global ingredients where I live.
