Gyoza Sliders

Wednesday, April 10, 2013


This time around, I skipped the step of making gyoza altogether and simply made the meat filling, forming it into mini patties for gyoza sliders. When dressed with sauteed mushrooms and red onions, wasabi, pickled ginger and gyoza dipping sauce, these fusion burgers are a unique twist on the classic American burger and they make a tasty appetizer or main course.

Jiaozi (Chinese dumplings) is a traditional Chinese dish that is popular during the Chinese New Year celebration. The pronunciation of this Chinese pot-sticker resembles the sound of a word for money so the tradition is to serve them during the New Year festivities as a promise of wealth and luck in the coming year.

My family loves our lighter chicken tikka masala sauce so much that we decided to make the Indian curry dish with fish instead of chicken. I knew it was a successful meal when my son devoured the fish just as quickly as he does the chicken.

Kale Wraps

These kale wraps are one of the most interesting (and good!) things I've had and they are definitely a conversation piece for a party. As you eat the kale wrap, you get a burst of each of the flavors: ginger, lime, toasted coconut, peanuts, red onion and tamarind sauce. I didn't even notice that I was eating kale.

This gingerbread can come in the form of cupcakes, mini cupcakes, or a 9x13 loaf. It is yummy plain but I love the addition of the cream cheese frosting.

Creating a teppanyaki-style meal at home is easier than you think. Our home-cooked version is full of the flavors that we love but it is much lighter and healthier than the restaurant versions.
