EQUIPMENT NEEDED: Large sauté pan (non-stick preferable) with lid
STORE: The Potstickers have been frozen before shipping and will arrive frozen or partially thawed. If you plan to enjoy your Potstickers within 2 days, store in your refrigerator in their original packaging; otherwise, freeze for up to 2 weeks (in original packaging). Defrost overnight in your refrigerator.
1. Carefully remove potstickers from packaging. In a large sauté pan, add ⅛ inch of water to cover the bottom of the pan. Add 1 tablespoon canola oil for every 12 potstickers.
2. Arrange the potstickers, flat side down, in the pan. Work in batches, if necessary, to not overcrowd. Place the sauté pan over medium-high heat and cover. Cook 6-8 minutes, until all water evaporates.
3. Gently shake the pan with the lid on to make sure all water is evaporated. Carefully remove the lid, opening lid away from you to avoid splatter, and continue to cook 45-60 seconds, until bottom of postickers become crisp. Using a thin metal spatula, flip one potsticker over to make sure bottom is crispy; if not, cook until crispy.
SERVE: Transfer potstickers to a plate, crispy side up, and serve with corresponding sauce.
- Red Roast Duck Potsticker: Sambal dipping sauce
- Short Rib Potsticker: Sweet Chile dipping sauce
- Srirach Chicken: Sriracha and Lime Juice Dipping Sauce
Sake Miso Marinated Butterfish
EQUIPMENT NEEDED: Heavy baking sheet or oven-proof sauté pan
STORE: The Butterfish is shipped fresh and is best enjoyed within 2 days of delivery. Store all ingredients in your refrigerator upon delivery, in their original packaging. If necessary, you can freeze the Butterfish for up to 14 days in its original packaging. However, the wakame and soba noodles will not freeze well, therefore Ming recommends enjoying this special meal within a few days of delivery.
1. Carefully remove filets from packaging and wipe off any excess marinade. Sprinkle with cracked black pepper. Set oven rack to lowest position and preheat broiler on HIGH. Place baking sheet under broiler to preheat for 5 minutes.
2. Carefully slide oven rack out and place fish onto baking sheet. The fish should sizzle. Broil fish until cooked through and golden brown, about 10-12 minutes. Check doneness by piercing fish with a skewer, which should come out with no resistance. Meanwhile, empty soba noodles and wakame into a large bowl. Add the soba salad dressing and toss to thoroughly coat. Set aside
3. To plate, squeeze soy-lime syrup on each plate in a zig-zag pattern. Place ¼ of the soba noodle salad off-set to the center of each plate. Place the cooked fish on the plate with one end on top of the soba noodle salad
4. Garnish the plate with five dots of wasabi oil, starting with a larger dot and getting smaller as you go. Place a tablespoon of pickled ginger “gari” on the plate next to the fish. Place a teaspoon of wasabi tobiko on top of each piece of fish. Sprinkle the fish with toasted sesame seeds.
Peace and Good Eating!
