A few weeks ago, i had an open bottle of Greenwood Ridge reisling and a hankering for some kind of Asian food - so i popped open Hot Sour Salty Sweet and found a few things to try. Our Sunday supper ensued.
dai tartare with gingered lemon drops (another dai tartare shot)
salmon, thai green curry, and coconut rice
The dai tartare was nice and simple - ground or chopped meat, mixed with Schezuan pepper & salt, served with a mild lettuce to wrap around spoonfuls of the meat. I was supposed to have a dipping powder of ground thai chilis and Schezuan pepper & salt, but i weaseled out of subbing chili powder for the thai chilis. Very tasty.
The drinks are ginger-infused vodka, a touch of simple syrup, and most of a mild lemon.
The salmon was pan-fried after marinating in a paste of lemongrass, ginger, and garlic; the green thai curry is my usual haphazard with lots of basil, lemongrass, ginger, garlic, and curry paste. Overall, very tasty, and a great pairing with the wine. I need to find a better way to plate my rice dishes though...Posted by shock on May 09, 2003 | TrackBack
