The salty scent of the sea, the gentle breeze caressing your cheeks, a melody created by an orchestra of sea gulls complimenting the visuals of the endless beautiful turquoise waves spreading cross the white sparkling sand and reflecting against the bright sun. Fantasizing of the Mediterranean summer brings me fond memories of my Euro-trips which brought many food discoveries and new found appreciation for European food. One of my favorite romantic seaside delicacies discovered is the "Moules Marinières" or Sailor Style Mussels.
With covid-19 in the picture, traveling is out of the window. However, the aromas of this recipe will bring you straight to the Mediterranean coast without leaving the house. This dish is perfect for a date night or if you just want to treat yourself. A play on the classic Moules Marinières, this recipe has a kick of red pepper flakes and Japanese sake for a spicy but mellow umami touch.
One of every Thai's comfort food, this noodle dish will sooth your soul with its mild gravy sauce. In Thailand, there are many variations of the dish as the rice noodle and the gravy base is extremely versatile which can leverage all kinds of ingredients. Our version of Lard Nar incorporates the classic Chinese broccoli and tender sliced pork combo, and a little bit of other veggies which were available in our fridge. However, you can add any vegetables that you like or change up the protein. Some of the vegetables which you can either substitute or add to the dish are mushroom, baby corn, broccoli, yu choy, bok choy, collard greens, cauliflower, broccoli rabe, kale, and carrots. As for protein substitutes, you can use sliced beef, sliced chicken, seafood, fried firm tofu, and seitan. The gravy sauce should mellow out all the ingredients and create a well rounded flavor to coat the charred rice noodles.
Finger licking good, sweet and savory, this thumbs up shrimp dish will satisfy your sweet tooth cravings while enjoying the fruits of the sea. Inspired by 'Walnut Shrimp', my version is sans Walnut just because I'm not as fond of nuts in my savory food, and the shrimp can be a versatile companion to any dish such as a salad topping. The best part is you only need several common ingredients and the prep to cook time is less than 30 minutes!
While Thai curry has been a stable to many of people abroad, most of the time we are stuck with either the choices of Red or Green curry. While undoubtedly, those are the two most popular type of curries, there are so many more regional specialties that are just as good or better.
