Jalapeno peppers heat up this shrimp, tomato, and pasta medley.
These tender bites of rice noodles, fresh vegetables, and herbs are traditionally served for New Year's. Wrap each appetizer roll in rice paper, sheets of pressed rice paste that can be found at Asian specialty markets or some large supermarkets.
Peas are the traditional side dish with this oh-so-easy variation of a favorite.
Weeknight convenience, Sunday night comfort, anytime taste. Feel free to substitute any pesto you please.
Shrimp gets Pan-Asian treatment in this pasta dish with fresh vegetables and a homemade sauce fired up with red chili paste. Look for red chili paste in Asian markets and specialty sections of supermarkets.
A few hours before dinner, shell and devein the shrimp, chop the vegetables, snip the herbs, and stash all in the fridge. Just before dinner, as the pasta cooks, retrieve the bits and pieces and put the main dish together -- in minutes.
Be sure to fold the salmon gently into this fresh-tasting mixture so it stays in nice big chunks.
Fresh tuna and other firm-fleshed fish are well suited to this fish-and-vegetable stir-fry because they hold their shape well while being quickly cooked and stirred.
Japanese buckwheat (soba) noodles, tossed with orange sections and red onion, then topped with a balsamic marinated salmon, add a subtle earthy flavor to this hearty dish.
