Sesame Shrimp with Miso Dipping Sauce

Roasted shrimp speckled with sesame seeds and dipped in a fruity miso sauce.

The Sauce: Miso Dipping Sauce – Asian fusion shrimp dipping sauce with miso paste, sesame oil, aromatics and fruit juice concentrate. Just thick enough to cling to the shrimp but thin enough to glisten.

‘Great Sauces Transform Good Food into Gourmet’ 

Japanese New Year’s celebration

Shrimp reminds me of Okinawan New Year’s. They still celebrate with the lunar calendar even though Japan adopted January 1st more than a century ago. While living in Okinawa we joined the biggest festivities of the year often in mid-January.

Special holiday foods tend to have a 2-3 day shelf life since traditionally stores closed for the holidays and refrigeration wasn’t widely available. This is a culture that shops every

day to buy fresh fish, seafood and vegetables for their evening meal. Brightly colored food with vibrant flavors and textures are arranged in divided lacquer boxes. Holiday fare includes fish, seafood, sushi, fruit, soup and mochi. Each food has meaning and promise for a good year. My favorite is shrimp, a wish for ’long life’.
Miso-Dipping-Sauce-with Sesame-Shrimp
 
I’m wishing my family ‘long life’ and toasting Okinawan memories by serving this sesame shrimp appetizer with a miso dipping sauce. A quick dip and it becomes drenched in a bright and fruity glaze. Roast the shrimp to capture all the flavor. It’s sprinkled with sesame seeds for a light crunch. For a special Japanese New Year’s dish or a party appetizer, this sauce is a fruity, savory alternative to cocktail sauce.

Recipe: Sesame Shrimp with Miso Dipping Sauce

Prep Time: 15 Minutes | Cook Time: 6 Minutes | Yield: 6 Servings | Level: Easy

Ingredients

  • 4 tsp red miso paste

  • 2 tsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3 T orange juice concentrate

  • 1 lb large raw shrimp, about 2 1/2 dozen
  • 2 tsp canola oil
  • 1/2 kosher salt
  • dash pepper
  • 1 Tbsp untoasted sesame seeds

Instructions
1 Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

2 Combine miso, sesame oil, vinegar, lemon juice, orange and pineapple juice concentrates, ginger, garlic and water in a small bowl. Mix well.

peeled-deveined-shrimp3 Peel and devein shrimp leaving the tails intact. Combine shrimp, oil, salt and pepper.

4 Place shrimp on a baking sheet lined with foil. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

5 Bake at 450 degrees for 5-7 minutes, or until shrimp are pink. Serve with miso dipping sauce.

Information
Notes
Red-Miso-PasteMiso paste comes in several varieties, Shiromiso or white miso, Akamiso or red miso and mixed miso. White miso is made with rice and barley with a few soybeans. It has a short aging time and the flavor is mild. Red miso is aged for a long time, sometimes up to a year or more, and on the balance has more soybeans. It begins light but turns darker as it ages. It has a stronger taste than shiromiso and is more salty.

Miso should be stored in an airtight container in the fridge once it is opened. It’s high in protein and has many natural, beneficial microorganisms which can be killed when exposed to heat. Using it without applying heat, as in this recipe, preserves the health benefits. Misoshiru, a Japanese soup, is often eaten daily. Adding the miso paste at the very end of the cooking process is recommended. Miso is umami.

Sesame oil traditionally is a dark, strong flavored oil made from sesame seeds and used as a flavoring. Nowadays very roasted-sesame-shrimp-with-miso-saucelight sesame oils are produced which can be used to stir fry for a touch of sesame in the dish. This sauce requires the rich, dark traditional sesame oil.

Keep some frozen fruit juice in the freezer such as orange, pineapple cranberry and apple. Use in dishes and sauces either in concentrate form or reconstituted into juice.

Applications
The Miso Dipping Sauce would also be a good flavor complement for pork chops or pork loin.

Dish Designer

  • Exchange orange and pineapple for all orange juice concentrate.

Fruit Juice Gelly

Fruit juice with gelatin and fruit, no artificial flavors, no synthetic dyes, no added sugar.

Lime Jell-O’s popularity is goin’ down

Utah has the notoriety of http://genericviagra4sexlife.com/ consuming the most Jell-O in North America and for all I know, probably in the world. In the Beehive State ‘Go Green’ doesn’t mean just protect the environment; it also means have a bowl of the most popular gelatin flavor, lime. My recipe collection Guava-Nectar-Pineapple-Banana-Cherryhas a dozen or two gelatin recipes masquerading as a salad or decadent wiggly desserts. My gelatin recipes cards though, http://canadianpharmacy-drugstorerx.com/ are pristine, not dog-eared and sticky from use. I’ll admit to making a few gelatin salads 30-40 years ago but the stuff doesn’t wiggle its way onto my menus anymore.

Fruit Juice Gelly, on the other hand, is something I really love. Jiggly and soft serve, they’re made from fruit juice or nectar and fruit. With no artificial flavors, no synthetic dyes, and no added sugar, these little jars of fruit gems are refreshing and light. Serve with lunch or dinner or as a snack, treat or light cialis dose maximale dessert. Fruit Juice Gelly’s are the real jewels, not fake knock-offs full of sugar and dye.

2011 AniversaRecipe – Asian Sesame Salad

Recipe: Fruit Juice Gelly

Prep Time: 3 Minutes | Inactive Time: 4 Hours | Cook Time: 5 Minutes | Yield: 6 Servings | Level: Easy

Ingredients
Fruit-Juice-Gelly-in-Jars

  • 2 cups bottled fruit juice or nectar
  • 1 pkg unflavored gelatin (about 2 teaspoons)
  • 1/2 – 1 cup fresh or canned fruit

Instructions
1 Place fruit juice or nectar in a small sauce pan. Sprinkle in the gelatin and whisk to combine. Let stand for 5 minutes.

2 Place the sauce pan on medium high heat. Cook and stir until the gelatin is completely dissolved, about 3-5 minutes. It does not need to boil. Remove from heat and let cool for about 5 minutes.

3 Pour into six half cup jars or containers. Refrigerate until the juice begins to thicken.
Fruit-Juice-Gelly-Jars-with-Fruit
4 Place pieces of fruit in and on the top of the jelly, decorating as desired. Place back into the fridge and allow to set for 4 hours or overnight. See combination suggestions in the ‘Information’ section under ‘Applications’.

Information
Notes
Fruit juice yields gelly that is transparent or opaque and very smooth. Fruit nectar yields gelly that has soft pulpy texture, my favorite.

For individual servings, use small canning jars, recycled sauce and condiment jars or airtight plastic containers.

For family-style serving, place gelly in one medium bowl or oblong dish then add the fruit.

Fruit-Juice-Gellies-White-Grape-with-Apricot-Halves

White Grape Juice with Apricot Halves


Fruit can be placed in the gelly after it has cooled but has not begun to thicken. It will sink creating a bottom layer of fruit with gelly on the top.
Fruit-Juice-Gellies-White-Grape-Apricot-Halves

White Grape Juice with Apricot Halves on the bottom layer


Reduce or increase the gelatin to make fruit juice the thickness you desire.

Pineapple, Mango, Kiwi and Ginger have enzymes that break down the gelatin. Either use these fruits canned or first cook them for about 5 minutes.

Applications
Here are some suggested combinations:

  • Pear Nectar with sliced canned peaches and fresh blueberries.
  • Guava Nectar with canned pineapple chunks, sliced bananas and maraschino cherry.
  • White Grape Juice with fresh red grapes.
  • CranApple Juice with canned pear halves.
  • Orange Juice with canned mandarin oranges.
  • Guava Nectar with strawberries, blueberries and raspberries.
  • Apricot Nectar with canned apricot halves.
  • Apple Juice 20mg cialis vs 100mg viagra with a dash cialisonline-lowprice.com of cinnamon and canned pear slices.

Try other combinations and have some fun with colors and juices.

Double the gelatin to make fruit juice ‘Wiggles’.

Dish Designer

  • Exchange bottled fruit juice for reconstituted frozen juice.
  • Exchange fresh or canned fruit for frozen fruit which has been defrosted and drained.

‘Breakfast Smoothies’ Series

Healthy, fruity smoothies for an on-the-go breakfast.

Raspberry boxes

Strawberry season is upon us or coming soon depending on what neck of the woods you live in.  That’s followed by blackberries, blueberries and raspberries.  These days you can find berries all year round but I especially love eating them during the local season as they are so fresh and a fraction of the price.  It reminds me of the raspberry purchase we made a couple of years ago at a local organic grocer.  Here’s how it went down.

Raspberry-BoxesMy daughter Audrey and I were at the checkout counter when we discovered fresh raspberries were selling at a killer deal, $.99 a box.   I decided not to leave the store without at least a few boxes and asked the checker if I could run back to produce.  ‘No problem,’ she cheerfully replied as she waved her hand in the general direction of the raspberry display.  I ran back and snatched three boxes and headed post haste back to the checkout.  In the meantime to keep the grocery line moving, Audrey already finalized the purchase.  That’s code for; she decided how many boxes we wanted so our purchase could be executed in one transaction.  When the checker saw my cache of fresh berries, with an ear to ear grin, she shook her head and informed me I would need a few more boxes.  To be exact, Audrey paid for 12 boxes.

I am not sure how we used all those raspberries at the peak of ripeness.  We scattered them on angel food cake with whipped cream, topped breakfast cereal, and layered them in yogurt parfaits.  We ate them out of hand like popcorn while watching a chick flick.  We shared them with family and friends.  I wished I could have made some fresh raspberry jam but we were moving to Washington, DC in a couple of weeks and didn’t have room to take them.

Smoothie-ServedOne of my favorite applications is a raspberry smoothie.  In fact, I love all kinds of fresh fruit smoothies.  This series is a collection of three blender-whirled breakfast smoothies, healthy and fast.  None of them are the real sweet variety that border on dessert drinks but you can add more honey or sugar if you prefer.  For the record Hummingbird Whiz (what’s in this smoothie?) is the sweetest in the bunch.  I’m also sharing a bonus blender creation of a favorite milkshake combination, almond, chocolate and coconut.   These recipes will be posted shortly so enjoy.  Share your favorite smoothie concoction with me.

‘Pork Chops with Fruit’ Series

Take the classic combo of pork and applesauce from the expected to the unexpected. Enjoy the freshness of apples retaining some of their firmness and flavor in the pork chop sauce. It’s juicy pork with sweet, crisp tender apples and a dash of lemon juice to balance the sweetness. A quick cooking dish, it’s a traditional combination with uncommon flare. Bookended by two pork chop recipes with salsas, they each have a more exotic fare. Here’s the ‘Pork Chops with Fruit’ series
schedule:

October 17th—Pork Chops with Mango Salsa
October 18th—Pork Chops with Fresh Apples
October 19th—Pork Chops with Pineapple Salsa

Since pork is the other white meat, the option to use chicken in these dishes is certainly on the table. If you prefer poultry, exchange pork for chicken in any of these recipes.

Tahitian French Toast

French Toast with fresh pineapple and coconut.

Transports you to Tahiti

A few weeks ago my brother Roger called about a dish he wanted me to try out. French Toast that transports your senses to Tahiti and the islands of French Polynesia. He mentioned coconut milk, fresh pineapple and Texas toast size bread. After entertaining thoughts of palm trees swaying in the breeze and creamy sand beaches in my mind’s eye I decided to put coconut and pineapple to pan and pen. With all these fresh flavors, the critical component is the coconut extract. It has enough potency to balance the pineapple. French Toast is usually pan fried at home and often deep fried when ordered out. This version, baked to a delicate crunch with only a trace of oil, reduces the calories but concentrates the island essence. It also reduces the busy work of batch frying and everybody eats when the sheet pan comes hot out of the oven. If you can’t make it to Tahiti, ‘bake’ it to Tahiti.

IngredientsPineapple-Sauce
Pineapple/Coconut Sauce

  • 1 1/2 cups plus 1 cup chopped fresh pineapple, divided

  • 1/2 tsp coconut extract
  • 1/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup biscuit mix
  • 10 1-inch slices challah

Pineapple/Coconut Sauce

  • 1 1/2 cups plus 1 cup chopped fresh pineapple, divided
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut

Instructions
1 Heat oven to 400 degrees and put a large baking sheet lined with non-stick foil on the center shelf.

5 In the meantime, cut, peel and chop the pineapple.

6 Place 1 1/2 cups pineapple into a small saucepan along with sugar. Heat and stir until it is bubbly and translucent. Take off heat and cool for 5 minutes.

7 Pour the pineapple sauce into the food processor or blender and process until smooth.

8 Pour into a medium bowl and add remaining 1 cup of pineapple, lemon juice and 1/4 cup coconut.

9 Serve baked French toast hot out of the oven with pineapple/coconut sauce and garnish with remaining 1/2 tsp orange zest. Also garnish with additional pineapple and orange slices.

Information
Notes
This dish takes about 2/3 of a medium to large pineapple. Use a ripe fruit that is sweet, juicy and at room temperature. Use some of the leftover pineapple for garnish.

Use one orange for this recipe. First grate off 1 tsp of the zest. Cut the orange in half and juice 2 Tbsp liquid. Slice the other half for garnish.

Non-stick foil a must. The French toast will actually slide around so it is easy to turn halfway through. If you use regular foil or bake directly on the cooking sheet, it will stick to the pan.

  • Exchange Challah for brioche or other eggy bread
  • Exchange biscuit mix for Bisquick.

Pineapple

All about pineapple

Polynesian pineapple fest

Thirty years ago on my first visit to the Polynesian Cultural Center in Laie, Hawaii I devoured a fresh pineapple dessert that was irresistible. Ripe-picked in the morning and delivered daily from the plantation, it’s served in a hollowed half pineapple—vanilla ice cream paired with fresh crushed pineapple, juice included. In the heat of the day the ice cream would swiftly begin to melt and swirl with the pineapple juice. Yum!!!

enjoy pineapple often enough. A little intimidated by the prep, I was unsure about the bristly top plume and the alligator resilience of the peel. When I tried to cut away the skin I’d wind up with ‘eyes’ peering back at me. Then how do you core it? And how about picking a sweet, ripe pineapple? Here are some pineapple pick and prep tips to demystify these prickly fruits. And tomorrow I’ll feature Tahitian French Toast under a fabulous fresh pineapple sauce. Enjoy it for a breakfast or brunch this Saturday.

Picking Ripe Pineapples
• Pick it for ‘yellow’—at least around the bottom and almost half way up.
• Pick it for ‘smell’—nose test it for a sweet pineapple aroma.
• Pick it for ‘pentagons’—peel has large pentagons at the top; small ones indicate it was picked too green.
• Pick it for ‘push’—gently push on the fruit, just barely gives-ripe, gives to pressure-over ripe, hard-not ripe.

Easy Pineapple PrepPineapple-Prep
1 Cut the top off and slice off the bottom.
2 Stand in a vertical position.
3 Carve the skin away from top to bottom.
4 Remove enough flesh to clean off the ‘eyes’.
5 Cut in vertical quarters.
6 Slice away the core from each piece.
7 Cut in chunks, slices or sticks.

Information
Fresh pineapple is best eaten at room temperature.
