Quick & easy asian bowls

September 13, 2016

Here’s a recipe that I have been cooking  a lot lately. It is so simple and so delicious!

What you’ll need:

  • Soy sauce
  • White rice (I like jasmine!)
  • Ginger dressing
  • Black sesame seeds
  • Sushi rice seasoning (like rice vinegar)
  • Avocado
  • Green Onions
  • Fish (we use tuna [yellowfin, etc.], snapper, etc. – Tommy goes on a lot of fishing trips so our freezer is always full of fish!)
  • Optional: Tofu

[Pictures below]

  • First, I cook the rice in a rice cooker or you can cook it on the stove. Once the rice is done, I add the sushi rice seasoning. The back of the label on the sushi rice seasoning tells you how much to add to the rice.
  • Marinate the fish in ginger dressing with a few splashes of soy sauce. You can also add lemon, salt and pepper to the marinade.
  • Next, put the fish on the grill to cook. While the fish is cooking, slice up the green onions and avocado [you can also add water chestnuts, cucumber, etc.].
    • Optional: you can also uses tofu – I don’t eat fish or meat so usually I put tofu on mine. I just take the tofu out of the container, slice it up on a plate and drizzle it with soy sauce and then sprinkle green onions on it. It’s delish!
  • After the rice and fish cooks, you are ready to make your bowls! Just add whatever toppings you like to the rice and you’re done!

My guac recipe

May 12, 2016

I’ve been MIA for awhile due to law school finals but they are finally over! I’m officially done with my second year of law school, I can’t believe it! Today I am sharing my guacamole recipe which is always a hit. I get asked for the recipe all the time so here it is:

What you’ll need:

2 ripe avocados
1 red onion
2-3 roma tomatoes
1 lime
salt & pepper

Slice the avocados in half. Remove the pit. Scoop out the avocados. Mash the avocados in a small-medium sized bowl. Next dice the onions and tomatoes. You can add as much or as little onion as you like (I know a lot of people don’t like onions). For the tomatoes, I sometimes de-seed them if they have a lot of seeds and water in side. When you cut the tomato in half, you can just scrape out the seeds so the guacamole is less “runny.” Next slice the lime into wedges. Add the onions and tomatoes to the smashed avocado. Squeeze 2-3 lime slices into the avocado mix. Next add salt and pepper. I just “eye” the amount of salt and pepper. You can always add more so it’s better to start on the light side. Mix everything together and go ahead and sample the guac with a tortilla chip. You can add more lime, salt or pepper. Then serve with chips (& a margarita!).

Option to add jalapeños and cilantro to spice it up! Also, you can always double the recipe to make more guac. The recipe above is perfect for 2-3 people.
