Crispy Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Crispy Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

A few weeks back, I made these for a bridal shower (except instead of using classic Iceberg Lettuce, I shrank it down and used endive leaves, which was the cutest thing ever) and the women devoured these things faster then I could make them! They couldn’t stop raving about how great they where! Little did they know that this was the easiest dish I made that day. I love this dish for several reasons but mainly because its easy, a great ‘make ahead’ dish (perfect for summer time use), and it’s obviously delicious and very unique in flavor

Pork Chop with Sweet & Spicy Fresh Mango and Avocado Sauce

Pork Chop with Sweet & Spicy Fresh Mango and Avocado Sauce

One of my favorite dishes to cook in the summer! The fresh mango and avocado sauce is actually good by itself and can be used as a sauce for any fish (salmon, tilapia, etc.) or chicken. It’s also good as a dipping sauce for chips or crackers!

Crispy Roast Pork Belly ‘Tacos’

Crispy Roast Pork Belly ‘Tacos’

A unctuously rich pork belly balanced with a crisp, bright herb salad over a scallion pancake. Although from start to finish the dish will take 4 hours, over 3 and a half hours are occupied by pre-roasting the pork belly, making this dish incredibly fast to make for family or friends. This dish is incredibly welcome at parties or dinners as a novel finger food, and celebrates a combination of my favorite things that my mom made — an homage to my childhood comfort foods with a healthy twist.

Asian Crab Salad

I first had a similar dish as a starter at our favorite Sushi restaurant and decided to try my hand at recreating it. I must say it gets rave reviews when I serve it and it is simple to prepare. Slightly spicy, definitely crunchy, and has a light texture while delivering a punch of flavor. It makes a great starter!
