fucking myspace won't let me send a recipe!
what the hi"ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzle appetizer...
salmon 'balls" this is just something i make for people to eat while they're impatient hungry asses wait. steam sticky rice with a couple teaspoons of vinegar and sugar. set aside. sliver smoked salmon and ginger...massage that with a touch of soy. put one pat of rice in your palm, and then put the salmon stuff in the center and close your fist. then shape into a nice round ball. sprinkle top with fresh pepper and toasted sesame. if you wanna be all dope serve with a dollop of wasabi in the center of some soy on a side dish.
Pan Fried Pork with Ginger Sauce
2-4 pork chops sliced 1 small onion sliced lengthwise
1/4 c beansprouts
1 doz snow peas trimmed ends
vegetable oil salt
1 slice fresh ginger finely diced
marinade 2 tsp soysauce 1 tsp sake (or white wine)
1 tsp rice vinegar
3 pcs ginger sliced TINY and thin
1 jalapeno (optional)
1 green onion (optional)
a) cut the porkchops semi frozen so you can get even slices - about 1 1/2 in by 1/8 inch b) mix all the marinade ingredients in a bowl, make your own adjustments with the soy and sake...i like heavy ginger myself... c) heat oil to medium high and add onions and ginger - cook until they are clear and shiny. take half the pork out and add to the pan. remove meat after 2 mins or colour hanges...repeat with the rest of the meat until it is all cooked. place the onions and pork on a plate. d) add a touch of butter to the pan and when it is melted add the beansprouts and snowpeas until bright and cooked (al dente only)...throw the pork in to incorporate.
I like to serve this with the pork coz it is a sweet vegetable but crunchy..
stuff: 3 medium zuchinni - coarse grate
1 tsp kosher or sea salt 2 egg yolks, save egg whites
2/3 c heavy cream or milk
2/3 c all purpose flour or tempura powder
2 green onions finely chopped
mix the zuchinni with the salt and leave to drain in a colander... after 15 or 20 mins rinse off the salt and squeeze out the water. dry well with paper towels and set aside whisk the egg yoks and cream in a bowl then whisk in flour to make a batter. Stir in the green onions and zucchini... in a separate bowl whisk te egg whites and salt until fluffy - whisk it good until it looks like bubble bath...fold the egg whites into the zuchinni crap until it is all incorporated. pour about a half inch of oil into a frying pan and let it warm up well. the oil is good to go and hot enough if you throw a slice of green onion in there and it dances in fast circles. Salad. Since you already started everything off with rice. I would pair the fritters and pork with a hearty salad. I say hearty coz even though this stuff tastes great it's pretty light on the gut. Go with the Euro Greens but use an Asian Sesame dressing and instead of croutons use those japanese rice cracker treats with the sesame. Grape tomatoes are off the hook lately too...If you are feeling inspired grill some onions and shrimp to top your salad. I hope this helps... Ta daaa
