Need asian recipe

By jdclyde ·

I am looking for an asian recipe that I can make, using ingredients that are easily found in the US.

A shrimp dish, spicy would be good, but a white sauce is good too.

Something that doesn't use a mix or come in a jar.

The main thing would be looking for ideas for the sauce.

Black pepper, red bean, white sauce. Whatever you have to offer.

Will be making dinner on Wednesday for a female friend, so want it to be something good, using fresh ingredients.

How good of a cook are you and how simple should this recipe be? By Asian, do mean Far Eastern like Chinese/Japanese/etc? How about Chinese takeout? India is in southwest Asia. I recently heard of a not-very-good Indian recipe that uses turnips as the main ingredient.

Naah ... it was persian ... we wouldn't use something as far out as smoldering plastic turnips

Tandoori (?)

by DMambo In reply to Indian??

When I visited England several years ago, you folks had Tandoori restaurants like we have Chinese restaurants here. Oh, it was good. You are sooo lucky.

I'm hungry.

JD, my wife has a spicy shrimp recipe. It's actually cajun, but it's really good and not too difficult. Interested? I can post later tonight if you are.

If you can walk or drive to a tandoori restaurant

by DMambo In reply to I am not a part of

then you are in the you folks that are lucky. I really liked the food that I had there. Especially compared to the "English" food we had. (No offense to the Englanders intended)

Thanks for the link. I'll bring it to the meal committee at home. (The kids run that committee. Last night was probably the first time in a month that we got 0 complaints about dinner. It's tough to please everyone.)

we round table it

by jdclyde In reply to If you can walk or drive ...

and final say rotates each night.

I rarely will over rule the boys decisions, but will sometimes veto because of time constraints.

Letting them chose AND help cook eliminates complants in my house, but then my boys are 13 and there is just the three of us so easier to please.

I also let Thing Two determine the spiciness, as he doesn't like it as hot as Thing One and I do. That or I have been known to make two batches, specialized to what we like, how we like!

I just roll that way!

Mambo, it's like Tex-Mex "Mexican" food

by M_a_r_k In reply to Tandoori (?)

A lot of "Mexican" food that you get in the U.S. is called Tex-Mex. All you get is burritos and tacos and enchiladas. You gotta go to a mom-and-pop owned hole-in-the-wall restaurant or to Mexico to get the real deal.

Direct from Mrs. Mambo

(There really is one)

Cajun Shrimp

? cup olive oil
2 Tablespoons Cajun seasoning (Paul Prud?homme?s blackened red fish)
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 Tablespoons chopped parsley
1 Tablespoon honey
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 pinch cayenne pepper

Combine all ingredients in a large ziplock bag, Add 1 pound of shrimp and marinate in refrigerator overnight.

Place in 9x13 baking dish and bake a 450 for 10 minutes
Serve with rice and lemon wedges.
**May double shrimp and use as appetizer

Marinating for an hour or two is probably goo enough. Sorry it's so late. It's a very delicious recipe.

Thanks again!
