As I prepared and cooked my Asian/Italian inspired meal, I felt like a true Food Ambassador. The United Nations would be proud of yours truly. Okay, now I’m going over the top.
But anyway guys, I was over the moon with the combining of both my dishes. With the help of a store-bought Risotto:
I was able to pull off a tasty and delicious dish. It had in all the ingredients along with just the amount of sodium to my taste. I also added a few pieces of fresh broccoli spears to freshen up the creamy dish.
I allowed the five-spice powder to be a great player in my vegetable stir-fry.
With just a small pinch of the Chinese spice, I was able to transform my assorted vegetables to another exotic level.
On the side, I grilled a few small to medium size shrimp. These were then flavored in a citrus butter sauce with bits of jalapeno peppers, capers and thin lemon slices.
Some white wine would have been perfect with these two dishes; however, I settle for what I had in-house, an inexpensive Merlot(Yellow tail) from Down Under. The Australians would be very proud. Salud guys!
