Turbot Fish in Tomato Sauce (Breaded Fish Recipe) Recipe

Turbot is a flat, white-fleshed, delicately flavored fish. To avoid overpowering the mild fish, I breaded and pan-fried it to create a crispy outer layer, and then placed the fish on a bed of simple tomato sauce.

I garnished the top with Castelvetrano green olives, which added a mild, lightly salted, briny taste. The fish was both flaky and meaty in texture and full of flavor.

Cha Ca Thang Long Recipe: Vietnamese Dill Fish with Turmeric  Recipe

Chả cá thăng long is a pan-fried dill fish dish. Try saying that three times in a row! The yellow hue comes from aromatic turmeric powder. Unlike Indian and Middle-Eastern cooking, dill -called thì là in Vietnamese- is not a very common ingredient in Southern Vietnamese cooking save for a few seafood dishes. Dill has a unique fresh flavor; it's sautéed in the same pan where the fish was pan-fried, then mixed back with the turmeric fish. The moisture from the herbs keeps the fish from drying out.

My family is originally from Cầnthõ and Sàigòn (Southern Vietnam) but my mother took me to Hànội (Norththern Vietnam) when I was seventeen. This dill fish recipe originates from that region. That's why it's also known as chả cá Hànội. You also might find it as chả cá lã vọng on some Vietnamese restaurant menus. If you're looking for a healthy dish, a meal composed of fish and cold rice vermicelli noodles (called bún in Vietnamese), might be the perfect fix.

Banh Khoai Mon: Fried Taro Cake Recipe Recipe

Fried taro is a dish I enjoy a lot whenever we eat a dim sum place. It's starchy, filling, salty and of course, who would deny fried food? But I can make the exact same dish at home for a lot less.

To recreate this recipe at home, I pan-fried cubed bánh bột khoai môn (taro cake), then sautéed the taro pieces with dried shrimp, mushrooms, coarse sea salt and parsley. How easy is that?

Shrimp Wonton Soup Recipe

04.22.11 by Jackie

Shrimp wonton soup is a delicious soup made with dumplings and chicken broth. It's perfect for soothing your throat. I served the Asian shrimp wontons along with broccoli florets to keep the dish very simple. If you want to serve this soup as a main course, you could add egg noodles along with other greens such as bok choy.

We're finally back from Texas where we spent our spring break and everyone except me is starting to get sick. I made this soup for the meat eaters in the house, but a vegetarian wonton soup is just as easy to prepare.
