Lobster Tails in Spicy Broth Recipe

Lobster Tails in Spicy Broth

09.18.14 by Jackie

As I mentioned yesterday, we had a dinner guest the other evening. He lived in Japan for 20 years  and now he's back to the US. We've met several times in the past and I remembered his love for seafood, so I promised him a special feast the next time he came to visit.

I wanted to prepare a special dish with luxurious flavors. so I served out-of-this-world lobster tails in spicy broth.

Lobster tails were pan-fried first, then sautéed in Chinese chives, Thai basil leaves and garlic and then dipped in a spicy lobster broth.

Give Me Seafood Please! Recipe

Give Me Seafood Please!

09.17.14 by Jackie

If you follow the blog, you probably know that even though we have many family members in our household, baby Aria and I are the only non-vegetarians and the two of us love seafood! Shrimp, fish, crab, lobster -- you name it, we crave them all!

We recently had a dinner guest and since I knew of his love for crustaceans, I prepared a special meal for him. I'll post the recipe and photo tomorrow. My first hint is that in my opinion this seafood dish is probably the most luxurious meal, and our guest wiped the dish clean. I left a bowl filled with lemon water on the side for him to clean his hands...hehe.

In the meantime, here is a sample of the seafood dishes I've published so far on PhamFatale. Bon appétit!

Asian-Inspired Bison Meatball Appetizer Recipe Recipe

Asian-Inspired Bison Meatball Appetizer Recipe

09.16.14 by Jackie

I love bison meat. It's leaner than beef. You could always substitute ground beef for the bison, but this gave the dish a gourmet feel and it tasted fantastic with the flavors I selected for the meatball appetizers I prepared.

I flavored the bison meatball appetizers with fermented beans, five-spice powder, wasabi paste and paired them with a spicy peanut, cilantro pesto with coconut, ginger and cilantro honey.

I used the meatballs as a part of the dish I used for an audition I participated in last weekend. I'm happy to say I passed the first selection for a competitive TV cooking show. I'll let you know more about it soon.

Baking Cookies is So Much Fun Recipe

Baking Cookies is So Much Fun

09.12.14 by Jackie

I love baking cookies. I find it so therapeutic. I think what I enjoy most is the simple thrill of watching the person I baked the cookies for enjoying them.

The reason I haven't published any recipe for the last few days is because I've been a busy bee, traveling to  Los Angeles for a press day. If you follow the blog, you probably know I finished filming the pilot of my first cooking series. I'm so excited! I'll tell you more about the events I attended soon.

At this moment, I'm still in LA, waiting for my batch of signature cookies (the ones flavored with pandan). But for now, I wanted to share some of the cookies I've prepared over the years. Enjoy!

Tri-Color Green Bean Salad Recipe Recipe

Tri-Color Green Bean Salad Recipe

09.08.14 by Jackie

At this time of the year I think I've reached the last crop of green beans to harvest from our garden. I simply steamed them and served them the healthy way. In addition to regular green beans, I bought fresh purple beans and wax beans to complete the dish. 

I seasoned the steamed bean salad with a sauce that I concocted using green beans, sweet basil, almond powder and fruity olive oil. As a reminder of the sauce flavor, I garnished the salad with lightly toasted sliced almonds.
