Honey and Mustard Roasted Quail Recipe Recipe

Cailles rôties au miel et à la moutarde translates in English to honey and mustard roasted  quails. This dish is "uber" easy to make, as the girls (they're teenagers) would say. I halved the quails lengthwise for faster cooking time, then glazed the meat with a honey and mustard mixture. The sweetness and subtle heat from the sauce make the perfect sophisticated dish. 

I couldn't resist serving the quails with quenelles of mashed potatoes. Don't get me wrong, I'm still trying as hard as I can to shed the last few pounds I gained during my pregnancy. I work out very hard daily but even though I watch my diet, I don't deprive myself of delicious foods. It's all about portion control. Quails are delicious and smaller sized than chicken. One quail was sufficient for my appetite and I felt full afterwards. I probably would eat two on a regular basis but that would only be out of sheer greediness!

Chim Cut Roti Recipe: Vietnamese Quail with Soy Ginger Glaze Recipe

As I've mentioned this before, there are a lot of Vietnamese takes on French dishes. This quail dish is called chim cút rôti; the mustard, coriander and white wine normally found in the French version have been replaced by red chili powder, ginger and soy sauce.

My favorite part is the sweet ginger glaze made with honey. I always end up eating with my fingers.  It may not necessarily be polite, but it's so delicious I wouldn't want to miss a single bite!

Mi Xao Ca Ri Ga (Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Stir Fry Recipe) Recipe

We had Vietnamese chicken curry earlier this week, so I used the leftovers to make this delicious chicken and tofu dish (mì xào cà ri gà). I have an aversion to wasting food, but that doesn't mean that the second life you breathe into a dish has to be any less wonderful than the original creation.

I shredded the chicken from the curry dish and made a stir-fry adding cubed tofu and vegetables available this season. To complete the meal, I added egg noodles. The dish couldn't be simpler to make, and it will work whether you have meat, poultry or seafood.

Vietnamese Ginger Chicken Recipe Recipe

 In the past, when a recipe called for nước mắm, I would always find a substitute. Fish sauce can have such a strong aroma, but since my cousin Aline told me about a new pure, first press fish sauce, I've become obsessed and have been cooking a lot of dishes with it.

I realize I already posted a ginger chicken recipe ("gà kho gừng" in  Vietnamese), but I've adjusted the chicken recipe so that the fish sauce becomes the highlight of the dish. No salt or caramel (sweetener) are needed and very little chile as well. The natural amber color from the fish sauce with julienned ginger and curry powder (mostly turmeric) make a flavorful and appealing dish. 

Gà kho gừng is a simple and easy dish. No marinating time is needed. Good quality products are the only requirement and of course, a dash of your love and soul. I guarantee it always makes the meal tastes better!

Coriander Lime Chicken Recipe Recipe

Coriander Lime Chicken Recipe

03.19.12 by Jackie

Roasting chicken is one of the best ways to showcase the poultry and enhance its flavor. It doesn't require too much skill; really, it’s just about a willingness to get your hands dirty. To ensure a tender and moist result, you’ll need to massage the marinade under and all over the skin of the meat.

The flavorings for the marinade are up to you. All that matters is the inclusion of the tenderizing ingredients to ensure the meat is succulent. Over the years, I've come up with a great combination for a successful roasted chicken, which consists of softened butter or/and olive oil, baking powder, green papaya paste and an acidic ingredient such as lemon, lime (or any citrus) or vinegar. For the remaining ingredients, I chose, garlic, freshly grated ginger, mint, coriander and honey. I also prepared a lime coconut sauce to pair with the chicken. And it was delicious!
