GOW CHOI GAU – SHRIMP & CHIVES DUMPLINGS by Linda Tay Esposito

Gow Choi - Chinese chives are stronger in flavor -- more garlicy taste than regular chives -- than regular chives. The flat-leaf, foot-long green is used as a vegetable rather than used as a herb.

Cilantro Shrimp

Cilantro Shrimp by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a simple and absolutely delicious stir-fry shrimp dish. I've been looking for something easy and tasty like this. I have a new staple! I used a red chile sauce that we had on hand instead of the sambal oelek, and I added it selectively after stir frying to my husbands and my plates, but not to the kids plates. It was…

Ginger-Hoisin Seared Shrimp

Ginger-Hoisin Seared Shrimp by Nancy Miyasaki

This recipe for pan searing shrimp is tangy and flavorful. It's not as universally popular in our family as the Garlic Lemon Butter Shrimp I've posted. But it's a close second. If you're looking for an Asian flavor, this is yummy. I adapted it from a Cooks Illustrated recipe. The shrimp will come out brown and slightly caramelized…

Shrimp and Tofu with Black Bean Sauce

Shrimp and Tofu with Black Bean Sauce by John Spottiswood

We're on a mission to create the ultimate black bean sauce. This recipe is getting pretty close I think. I took bits from a traditional Chinese recipe and combined those with another few bits that I got from a Martin Yan recipe. The result was not as sweet as Martin Yan's, but with just enough sweetness to fill out the flavor of…

Shrimp & Crab Egg Rolls

Shrimp & Crab Egg Rolls by jason kim

The kids got a nice surprise last weekend when they were allowed to help me make some seafood egg rolls. It's a major high for them since we rarely let them help out cook despite their incessant pleas and begging. And to our surprise, they did a pretty good job........full story and recipe at http://www.oliviajasonkim.com

Shrimp Udon w Fish Cakes & Poached Egg

Shrimp Udon w Fish Cakes & Poached Egg by jason kim

Udon, (or udong as most Koreans say) is a great noodle dish that can be enjoyed morning, day, or night. It is a popular dish in both Korea and Japan (where it originated), and you can find this tasty, instant version in most Asian grocers. When we get tired of the usual ramen variety, we like to change things up with udon noodles…

Korean Nakji Bokkeum (Spicy Octopus Stir Fry) by jason kim

We finally got to enjoy a spicy seafood dish when we found some frozen octopus at the local Asian market. Instead of using our usual Korean store, which is handicapped with bad produce, limited ingredients, and overpricing, we have been finding more and more Korean items like this for our dishes.....full story and recipe at…
