Asian Recipes

This is my family recipe for Chicken Katsu - Japanese style fried chicken. Can also be used to make Tonkatsu just use pork cutlets instead of chicken. Serve with white rice and tonkatsu sauce.
Many of these ingredients can be found in Asian or specialty shops. Chili paste with soy bean oil comes in small jars and can be found in most Asian markets. Galangal a member of the ginger family is a knobby root that tastes like a cross between ginger and pepper. Tom Yum Soup paste can be found in Asian shops or you can use Thai Red Curry paste. Kaffir lime leaves have an aromatic citrus-like smell and flavor. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.
This is my take on the classic Korean fried chicken sauce. I like to add lots of green onion and garlic and not cook this quite as long. The result is a sauce with those ingredients a little more in the flavor profile's forefront. Try to find Korean chili flakes and/or paste if you can. I've used them before and the flavor is great (and obviously more authentic) but if you can't any hot chili flakes or paste will work.
Whenever we go out for Chinese food my friends always order this vegetable dish from the 'secret' menu. It is so yummy and different and probably pretty good for you because it is as green as spinach. I've been scouring the vegetable aisle for months trying to figure out what exactly the stuff is. Lo and behold today I found it at Superstore. Of course I didn't know exactly until I actually cooked it but there was no mistaking it. They are snow pea shoots! Yumm yumm!
Here is my recipe for the perfect sushi rice. You can eat this alone or roll into your favorite sushi roll with ingredients of choice. I use strips of carrots cucumbers and slices of avocado. You can adjust the amount of vinegar in this recipe to suit your taste.
I've always considered myself something of a fried chicken expert. I've pretty much had every single style known to man and this Korean fried chicken is officially my favorite. No other method I've come across has the same combination of tender juicy flavorful chicken and plate-scratching crispiness as this recipe does. It's simply a must-try!
