SHANGHAINESE LION’S HEAD

SHANGHAINESE LION’S HEAD by Linda Tay Esposito

They call it Lion's Head because the meatballs are ye big with manes of soft, tender napa cabbage...looking like a lion. Seriously, in Shanghai, the meatballs are the size of a tennis ball - let's call that a quarter pounder meatball. Slowly braise or steam to get a tender, melt-in-your-mouth meatballs. If you have a small…

I love Korean fried chicken. I love it so much I eat it on average about four times per week. On top of that, I oftentimes have dreams (no joke) about frying up....

Orange Portabella and Spinach Rice Bowl

Orange Portabella and Spinach Rice Bowl by Sean Kervin

While living in Japan, I fell in love with the simplicity of the Japanese Rice Bowl. Nothing too complex - it is simply a bowl of Jasmine rice with beef or chicken, some sauce, and if you're lucky, you sometimes get sea weed or a fried egg on top. I have since bastardized the concept - but the foundation of some rice, in a bowl,…

Butter Salmon

Butter Salmon by kathy vegas

Based on one of India’s most popluar dishes, Butter Chicken (or murgh makhani), this recipe substitutes salmon for the usual chicken. It’s a rich, vibrant dish and only needs plain rice or Indian flat bread to accompany it. Don’t be put off by the rather long list of ingredients, the dish goes together quickly. Since the sauce and…

Okinawan Sweet Fritters

Okinawan Sweet Fritters by Tamara Daugherty

I grew up loving this delicate treat, both from the market in Okinawa (watching elderly women fry these up in giant cast iron pots) and made at home by my "Oba-ason" (Okinawan grandmother)". I use to wait for these little doughnuts to float on top in her pot over a wood-fed fire. (we never had a stove). Similar to the American version…

Tangy Asian Grilled Salmon

Tangy Asian Grilled Salmon by John Spottiswood

This is another recipe adapted from the Barefoot Contessa. It's super simple and provides a tangy contrast to the sweetness of typical teriyaki sauce. Don't let the Dijon mustard in a supposedly Asian recipe throw you. It's a really nice combination of flavors. We doubled the garlic and reduced the olive oil slightly from the…

Kalbi (Marinated Short Ribs)

Kalbi (Marinated Short Ribs) by jason kim

On my half day off, I decided to "relax" by making my favorite (and the kids too) Korean meat dish--kalbi (marinated short ribs), which are tender, savory, sweet, and full of delicious flavors. These are best to be cooked on a grill (especially great for special occasions with friends and family) but they also taste good pan-fried off…

Tandoori Chicken

Tandoori Chicken by PreeOccupied

Nothing extraordinary about this tandoori chicken, except that I have used a "Chuza" for this recipe. Cornish Hen is what is closely classified as a chuza you can get from a supermarket. Not to mention that this was my first time making a tandoori of a whole cornish hen!

Asian Chicken & Rice Noodle Salad

Asian Chicken & Rice Noodle Salad by Bob Vincent

This is a nice change of pace main dish salad. It is adapted from a recent recipe in Fine Cooking magazine. I added several additional ingredients and changed the formula for the dressing as well. The spinach, water chestnuts, cilantro, cashews, peanut oil, tangerine juice and rice wine vinegar were not included in the original.…
