Weekend Special – Dinner with Asian Flair

I’m getting tired of all this rain, rain and more rain. I’m thinking a dinner with a little Asian flair may cheer things up. Take your mind off the weather with good friends and fabulous food. Make it easy as well as delicious and serve the meal buffet style.

How to start? How about one of my all time favorite appetizers … Summer Rolls? If you’ve got a big crowd, add a few crunchy veggies and some Peanut-Sesame Dipping Sauce.

On to the main event: Hopefully the weather will clear long enough to break out the grill. If not, hopefully your roof has a big enough overhang to keep you dry. Whip up some sweet and spicy Hoisin Pork or Chicken or maybe some flavorful Tandoori Chicken. Then again, maybe you’d prefer a few hot and spicy Piri Piri Prawns (If it’s bucketing down rain you can always roast the chicken and/or pork in the oven and throw the shrimp on a grill pan.) If you’ve got a big crowd, mix it up with two or even three platters of delicious grilled pork, chicken and/or shrimp. Round out the table a few wonderful salads. Try my Asian Noodle SaladThai Salad and maybe even my yummy Asian Slaw .

And something sweet? What could be more refreshing than Strawberry-Rhubarb Soup, Strawberry Gelato or Mousse Citron (Lemon Mousse)? Any or all three will make a great end to a delicious dinner.

Have fun and enjoy the weekend! Bon appétit!

  1. Summer light desserts with lemon or strawberry are such a nice way to finish a dinner. I hope your weather clears soon. I’ll try to send some of our California sunshine your way.
