A lot of us are getting bored already, as we’re stuck at home, in lock-down. One way to have fun with your partner this weekend is to get cooking! Read on to discover some great Asian dishes you can make together.
You can’t go wrong with spring rolls. They are a favourite amongst most Chinese food lovers. They are light and crispy and the perfect way to start off your very own Asian banquet.
If you’re looking to add a bit of Japanese flavour to your Asian affair, sushi is the obvious choice. You will need some traditional Japanese knives, especially for cutting the fish, if you’re going to do this cuisine justice. You will certainly feel proud of yourself once you’re finished!
Who doesn’t love duck pancakes? It’s no surprise that Peking duck is one of the most popular Chinese dishes. Its taste is exquisite. Serve the duck on a big platter and display and an array of dishes alongside it boasting sliced cucumber, sliced spring onion, soy sauce and of course pancakes.
Pad Thai is one of the most popular Thai dishes, yet it is also one of the easiest to make, which is great news! This is a stir-fried rice noodle dish, which is usually served as street food in Thailand. You can make it with a range of vegetables, as well as bean sprouts, scrambled egg, peanuts, tofu or beef, chicken, shrimp, and of course, rice noodles.
King Pao Chicken
If your partner is a lover of spicy food then this dish is assured to go down a hit. Kung Pao Chicken incorporates vegetables of your choice, usually spring onions, peanuts, hot chilli peppers and of course diced chicken.
Sweet and sour Pork
Sweet and sour pork provides you with the perfect contrast from King Pao Chicken in order to provide two diverse tastes. You’ll need the following ingredients if you are going to add this to your banquet; pork tenderloin, pepper, onion, soy sauce, ketchup and salt.
Egg Fried Rice
You’ll obviously need some rice to go alongside your dishes and egg fried rice is the most obvious and popular choice. It’s up to you if you want to make it a special egg fried rice by incorporating some meat, prawns and vegetables. However, if you are making an array of other dishes then it is probably best to keep it as light as possible.
King Prawn Chow Mein
Chow Mein is a must when it comes to any Asian banquet. It is one of the most popular Chinese dishes and it is extremely versatile; you can include any meat, fish or vegetables you desire. However, by opting for a king prawn Chow Mein you find a way of incorporating some seafood into your meal. As thus far we have had meat overload with chicken, pork and duck.
Finally, another way to incorporate prawns is with the popular Japanese tempura method. With a crispy coating, these prawns are to die for.
