Steamy Kitchen's Healthy Asian Recipes: Thai Larb Chicken Lettuce Cups

Thai Lard Chicken Lettuce Cups

Serves: 4

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1/2 pound ground chicken breast
  • 2 shallots, diced
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, very finely minced
  • Minced fresh chiles, Jalapeño or Fresno (amount up to you)
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce, leaves separated into “cups”
  • 1 handful of cilantro and/or mint, cut into chiffonade
Directions

Heat a wok or large sauté pan over high heat. When hot, swirl in 1 tablespoon of the oil and add the chicken. Use your spatula to break up the meat and spread out over the surface of the pan. Cook until browned, about 3 minutes.

Push the ground chicken to one side of the pan and swirl in the remaining ½ tablespoon of oil. To the oil, add the shallots, red onion, garlic, and fresh chiles and sauté the aromatics until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the fish sauce, lime juice, and soy sauce.

Serve with lettuce cups and herbs.

Steamy Kitchen's Healthy Asian Recipes: Sake-steamed Mussels

Sake-steamed Mussels

Serves: 4

Ingredients
  • 2 pounds fresh mussels
  • 1 1/2 cups sake or dry white wine
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 shallot, sliced into very thin rings
  • 1 handful fresh basil leaves
Directions

Scrub the mussels under cool water, discarding any with broken or cracked shells.

Heat a large sauté pan, deep soup pot, or wok over high heat with the sake, ginger, garlic, and shallots. When the mixture comes to a boil, add the mussels and cover. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the mussels open.

Toss in the basil and serve immediately.

Review

In Steamy Kitchen’s Healthy Asian Favorites, Jaden brings down to earth all the irresistible Asian recipes that many of us love ordering in restaurants but could never imagine making at home. Everything from a simple Egg Drop and Tomato Soup all the way up to a Salmon Honey Teriyaki and even an impressive Chinese Hot Pot Party is presented in a straightforward way, using ingredients that most anyone can get at a supermarket. It makes Asian cooking possible for real home cooks like me, and it challenges me to tackle new frontiers in my kitchen. 
— Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman

“Should we ever tinker with the classics? Absolutely! In her Healthy Asian Favorites, Jaden Hair offers every Asian food lover and home cook one hundred new recipes that are lighter, healthier, and more reflective of today’s taste and lifestyle. On behalf of my ten thousand taste buds, I say: Thank you!”
—Martin Yan, master chef and host of Yan Can Cook

—Ming Tsai, restaurateur and author of Blue Ginger
 
“Asian food is one of my favorite cuisines, and leave it to Jaden Hair to make it healthy while retaining the vibrant, exciting flavors that I love. And all simple enough so anyone can master them. Get your chopsticks ready!”

“Jaden’s latest concoctions embody both tradition and innovation. The recipes are fresh, intentionally healthful, and just indulgent enough to need to sneak back into the kitchen for second and third helpings.”
—Joy Wilson, author of Joy the Baker Cookbook
 
“The thing I love most about this book is Jaden’s emphasis on bright flavors, fragrant spices, and fresh produce. Her enthusiasm is infectious, and translates into a substantial book filled with heart and achievable weeknight inspirations.”

“Jaden Hair’s Healthy Asian Favorites showcases her love of food and her desire to share the many tricks and terrific recipes she’s mastered. Jaden’s recipes are snappy and approachable, and she wisely leaves the “healthy” part implicit, focusing instead on the pleasure—the fun!—of Asian cooking.”

Format: Paperback
Far too many dishes from many Asian lands fall into the "too difficult, too involved" category and that can be a great shame. Asian food can have a tremendous variety of flavours, colours, tastes and inspirations. Maybe this book can help?

Set out to provide one hundred fast, fresh and simple dishes - if you were to form a decision based on the first snack shown in a wonderful colour photograph you might be cynical, saying that surely THAT is not simple to make! After a fairly interesting, if not formulaic introduction setting out the author's objectives, her background and so forth it is on to the recipes.

Split into soups, pickles & sauces, salads & dressing, little bites, (items to) share, vegetables, tofu & eggs, meat & seafood, noodles & rice and finally sweets and libations, the reader is taken on a whistle-stop gastronomic tour of Asia. Some dishes may be familiar favourites and some may turn out to be nice surprises - one of the delights of such an unpredictable book. The recipes are presented in a two column format (an interesting, different way to present matters) with an introduction and overview to the left and the ingredients and instructions to the right. The recipes are sadly only in imperial measurements (no excuse nowadays for this!) but they are well written, simple to understand.

Our "usual" complaint about the lack of a clear estimated preparation and cooking time is valid here. The photography used throughout is of a basic, great quality but it is a shame that most dishes are not given the honour of an accompanying photograph - the photographs that are used might as well be "stock photos" as there are no picture captions to point you towards the recipe(s) and vice versa.

This cookbook is as advertised. The recipes are straightforward, healthy and delicious. Even if you skip some of the more complicated steps (such as substituting store-bought stock for homemade or declining to make your own hot sauce) the food still tastes great. Also, none of the ingredients in the recipes I have tried so far have been difficult to find. All in all, an excellent book.

Format: Paperback
The subtitle of Steamy Kitchen's Healthy Asian Favorites perfectly sums up the book: "100 Recipes that are Fast, Fresh, and Simple Enough for Tonight's Supper."

The book begins with an intro by Jaden Hair, who most people know from her Steamy Kitchen blog. She talks about her early years in Hong Kong, growing up in Nebraska and her current homesteading lifestyle. Touching on topics like her blogging and her fabulous food photographs.

After the intro the book is divided into 9 sections: Soups, Pickles & Sauces, Salads & Dressings, Little Bites, Share, Vegetables, Tofu & Eggs, Meat & Seafood, Noodles & Rice, and Sweets & Libations.

Soups opens up with the basic stocks including dashi and miso. I loved the sound of them all but marked to try:

Thai Tom Yum Soup (2 versions)
Hot & Sour Soup
Healing Chicken Ginger Soup

Pickles & Sauces - I found lot's to love here:
Gari (pickled ginger)
Korean Bean Sprout Salad
Cucumber Apple Kimchi

Salads & Dressings - there is a great variety of dressings and some fabulous sounding salads:
Simple Citrus Dressing
Big Salmon Salad
Quinoa Salad with Avocado and Peas

Little Bites:
Korean Beef Bites
Chicken Mango Lettuce Cups

Share:
Vietnamese Summer Rolls with Roast Pork
Japanese Hot Pot

Vegetables, Tofu and Eggs:
Roasted Kabocha Squash
Baby Bok Choy with Garlic and Ginger
Meat and Seafood:

Chinese Style Parchment Fish
Lemon Chicken

Noodles and Rice - One of my favorite sections!

I've scanned through the whole book and tried a few: shrimp and cucumber
Sunomono, dumpling dipping sauce for my store bought dumplings, Vietnamese summer rolls with roast pork. Everything I've tried is very good! I'm so inspired to try all the other recipes. The pictures are great, you just want to eat it out of the page. I'm also glad that I have almost all the condiments she used, although majority of them are easy to find. She has pictures of the actual sauces and condiments at the back of the book which is great. I took one star because I think that if you say healthy recipes, there should be nutritional information or at least calories per serving. But overall a great cookbook. I would recommend to anyone who wants to try easy, healthy Asian food that taste great!

I purchased this cookbook after one of the recipes was featured on SkinnyTaste.com. So great! We just recieved late last week and we've already made several of the recipes. They are quick, use whole ingredients and are relatively tasty. I especially love the section in the back which provides more information on the Asian ingredients and how to pick out the right ones at the market, where more often than not the labels aren't in English. Can't wait to make spring rolls this weekend!
