I appreciate the simple and authentic recipes. I am in the final stages of Breast Cancer recovery and wanted to find some easy, healthy and tasty recipes. I have made several of your recipes and it makes me feel like an accomplished chef. I would love a shopping list to keep my cupboard stocked with the essential items you recommend. Once again, thank you for sharing your passion with myself and others.
i own a restraunt love these recipes …thank you so much
i love all of these they r delicious
I have been to restaurants that serve a dipping sauce, with potstickers, that seems to be something more than soy sauce. Any ideas?
Unfortunately, I do not have any dipping sauce recipes at this time.
Thanks for the response!!
I love all of your recipes.
That sauce is Ponzu Sauce. You can buy it at the grocery store in the Asian section, or you can also make it from scratch. There’s a bunch of recipes on line if you Google “ponzu sauce recipe”.
Try 1/2 soy sauce, 1/2 rice vinegar!
I notice a lot of your recipes use sesame seeds. I never use up what I buy and they get rancid – could I store them in my freezer? Also can I store sesame oil in the freezer since it, too, goes rancid in the fridge.
Thank you so much for all the wonderful recipes and especially for the gorgeous photography!!
Sesame seeds and sesame oil should be stored at room temperature. They shouldn’t go rancid unless it’s been a really, really long time!
I KEEP MY SESAME SEEDS IN THE FREEZE THEM TAKE OUT THE AMOUNT I’M GOING TO USE AND LET THEM SIT AT ROOM TEMP.TO ALLOW THE OILS TO THAW AND TASTE FRESH
in Vietnam, about our daily meal, We also have a dish having lots of nutrition, grilled duck sprinkled with sesame and eat accompany with rice. It looks like Teriyaki Salmon and Broccoli Bowls, It is also pretty easy to make it.
There is nothing like a night in eating take-out. I have a local Chinese joint I like to order from. This article has me thinking that I might whip up my own take-out next time I am on the mood for some Asian flare. And it all looks easy to do.
OMG There are some great recipes can’t wait to try them Thank you
Oh my goodness, these look and sound amazing, yum!
