Driven to explore alternative gyoza filling ideas, presented here are three gyoza filling recipes: salmon and asparagus, truffled potato, and duck and orange—all accompanied by a flavour enhancing ponzu dipping sauce and some pickled daikon.
Cooking the bacon-wrapped salmon using the sous vide method allows the flavours to meld while keeping the salmon delicate and moist. The charred corn puree and the braised endive bring some wonderful diversity to the plate.
An appetiser should excite the palate. And these spicy soba noodles with XO sauce and confit/sous vide egg yolk does just that. Umami packed, velvety egg yolk, and a nice edge from the chilli. Delectable.
Melt-in-your-mouth sous-vide salmon confit is topped with explode-in-your-mouth salmon eggs. The fresh-tasting yet intense tomato consommé is a perfect compliment. Crisp fresh vegetables add some sweet, sour, and bitter notes.
Dried apricots and brie are a great combination on their own. But chicken with dried apricots and brie stuffing is on a higher level. With the mustard maple sauce, this combination rose to a new level of awesomeness. And yes, that is a word.
Chicken, like tofu, is one of those ingredients that takes on the flavours it is cooked with. Those flavours become part of its flavour. In this miso ginger chicken recipe, the chicken clearly welcomes the sweet and salty ginger miso marinade and basting. The pomelo salad adds to the magic.
The luxurious, velvety texture of the grilled eggplant, spinach, and onsen quail eggs are a worthy accompaniment for the classic soba noodles and tsuyu broth.
Succulent chicken thigh meat is combined with the chilli and umami punch of XO sauce in a crispy golden wrapper. This fried spring rolls recipe is something you will fall in love with. And the truffle mash provides a wonderfully earthy counterpoint.
The asparagus and pancetta stuffed chicken breast was incredibly delicious. Omitting mention of the veggie reduction gravy though would be criminal. It did what a gravy should – provide a solid flavour foundation while highlighting the flavours of the main attraction. The beetroot and feta salad could stand alone but completed this plate in a …
Exploring combinations of flavours is something some of us a driven to do. Sometimes disastrous, this time a success – this pan-seared foie gras with chocolate orange sauce was a truly luxurious taste experience.
Trying to sum up this simple dish in words is difficult, and actually seems pointless. Onsen tamago, or onsen egg, simply has to be experienced. It’s so difficult to describe this slow poached egg, and yet so easy to create at home.
Weekend brunches with family or friends feature heavily in “moments that matter”. With a delicious dish of crispy smashed potatoes, pancetta, and a poached egg, those moments will matter so much more.
A salad to surprise, challenge, and delight your guests. As healthy as it is delicious, you will feel good after eating this cold soba noodle salad.
Kimchi is visibly present as a topping, but kimchi juices work together with buttermilk to ensure we have a tender, succulent, and tasty piece of chicken in this burger. This Korean influenced chicken burger has so much character, making western-style chicken burgers seem rather lame.
