Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice.

Chenin Blanc, Gewurztraminer, and Riesling are my top picks for Asian. The best wine for Asian food depends on the cuisine and dish - of course - but these acidic whites pair with a number of traditional meals, spicy or not. The Beaumont Hope Marguerite Chenin Blanc with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 35 dollars per bottle.

Beaumont Hope Marguerite Chenin Blanc

Fresh, clean and powerful fruit.Matches brilliantly with seafood especially scallops and any beautifully spicy Asian dish.

Instructions

  1. * (Here they call them Japanese - the small skinny light purple or lavender ones)
  2. Combine all ingredients EXCEPT EGGPLANT in a blender or processor. Process until smooth. Prick th eggplants several times with a fork and pull off the leaves. Cut in half lengthwise. On the open side of each half make three deep diagonal slashes in each direction. Place eggplants skin side down in a 13x9x2 oval dish.
  3. Spoon 1 1/2 teaspoons of the marinade over each eggplant half. Rub into flesh so that it runs into the cuts. Turn eggplants skin side up. Pour remaining marinade into the dish. Let stand 45 minutes.
  4. Turn eggplants skin side down. Cover tightly with microwave plastic wrap.
  5. Cook at high power for 10 minutes. Prick plastic to release steam. Remove, uncover, spoon sauce over eggplants. Serve as side dish. Recommended with grilled fish steak or chicken breast (of course I'd baste that with a soy based marinade).
  6. I may try this over a wok steamer rather than in the microwave.
  7. WHICH REMINDS ME: Stephen, I love a dish which I have seen referred to as Yu Shaing Eggplant. Based on a Yu Shaing sauce. Which is, to some extent, translated as fish sauce (I know the yu or ju is fish) not made from it but to go with it, I gather. It is certainly not nuoc mam but I don't know if it contains it. It is rather hot and by flavor I would guess it comes from the northern provinces - perhaps NE end of China. I have also had it with fresh pork strings. Glorious. Do you have any idea what it is or a recipe??? I have been unable to find it anywhere in my Chinese library. The restaurant where I eat it is not one to give recipes or ingredients to non-Chinese (if they'd give it to the Chinese. The place is popular with the newer Chinese community here. (The old timers are all Cantonese and so well integrated that they probably consider red beans and rice their d

Cooking Tips

  • Keeping ginger on hand all the time doesn't mean you have to buy bottled ginger. Instead, freeze fresh ginger whole and grate what you need while its still frozen.
