Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Stuffed mushrooms with shrimp

    • amoule on November 03, 2016

      These are good but I suspect that the sauce variations might be better than the oyster sauce offered in the main recipe. I also think shiitake mushrooms would be an improvement over button mushrooms. The filling is a little bland, but I suspect it might be the shrimp that I used. I suggest cutting back the water chestnuts to two or three.

  • Salmon watercress salad

    • amoule on April 01, 2015

      This is really very good and is well worth repeating. In my opinion it needs double the preserved ginger. Adding cilantro and either white balsamic vinegar or seasoned rice vinegar makes it even better. It's good enough for company.

  • Hot-and-sour seafood soup

  • Grilled swordfish in lemon-ginger marinade

    • peaceoutdesign on June 20, 2022

      Can sub sake for the wine and add vinegar for a great sauce for sashimi

  • Oriental pate

    • peaceoutdesign on November 25, 2016

      If people like pate they will love this.
