Pan Seared Coconut Crusted Tuna Steak

Pan Seared Coconut Crusted Tuna Steak

This Tropical Seared Coconut Crusted Tuna Steak was inspired by coconut shrimp I recently had while out to dinner.

I’ve paired it with a dipping sauce of orange juice and hoisin, which is the perfect compliment to the mild sweetness of the crunchy toasted coconut crust. It’s quite delicious, and I hope you love it as much as I think you will!

Best Easy Homemade Orange Curd

Best Easy Homemade Orange Curd

I’ve been craving oranges – a lot! I don’t know if it’s a need to replenish vitamin C in my body, or if it’s because I’m craving warmer temperatures during this arctic blast we’ve been experiencing here in the Midwest. 

Whatever the reason, this easy to make thick and tangy homemade orange curd cures my craving for oranges and satisfies my sweet tooth in an utterly delicious, and completely versatile, way!

However, if you’re not prepared to wait until summer to make this delicious Spicy Thai Pulled Pork with Orange, I completely understand! If I was you, I’d think up a reason to have friends and family over as soon as possible (maybe for an impromptu game night), just so you can make and serve these amazing sandwiches! I promise you won’t regret it one bit!!

Chicken with Strawberry Satay Sauce

Chicken with Strawberry Satay Sauce

Since a traditional satay sauce is peanut butter based, I thought I’d do a play on a PB & J by adding in season, plump and juicy Florida strawberries to the satay sauce. The result is a sweet and savory dipping sauce which pairs wonderfully well with grilled chicken. To say the kids will love this dish of Chicken with Strawberry Satay Sauce is an understatement! After all, who wouldn’t love a dipping sauce that tastes like a peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwich?

Tasty Chinese Ground Pork Egg Roll Bowl Kudos Kitchen Style

Tasty Chinese Ground Pork Egg Roll Bowl Kudos Kitchen Style

This recipe for a Ground Pork Egg Roll Bowl is my take on a deconstructed egg roll. In place of the crispily fried eggroll wrapper, I’ve used chow mein noodles for crunch as a top garnish along with scallions, and chopped peanuts (which are completely optional). The other ingredients I’ve used are basic Chinese staple pantry ingredients. While there may be quite a few ingredients, they’re invaluable to have in your cupboards for cooking Asian cuisine throughout the year. Invest in them once and you’ll be all set for whenever you have a craving for Chinese food, but don’t want to do take-out.
