Add a Splash of Fla­vor to Your Sum­mer

Asian-in­spired small plates for the en­tire fam­ily

Escalon Times - - NEIGHBORHOOD VALUES -

The sea­son of warm sum­mer nights and bright sunny days calls for equally vi­brant meals. As the sea­son of en­ter­tain­ing con­tin­ues, many at-home chefs are search­ing for ex­cit­ing and fla­vor­ful meals to feed their fam­ily and friends. Ac­cord­ing to Min­tel’s 2018 US Fla­vor Trends Re­port, con­sumers con­tin­u­ally seek to be more ad­ven­tur­ous with their palates by try­ing eth­nic fla­vors, such as those found in Asian cook­ing. When the hot­ter sum­mer weather calls for light, fresh snack­able fare, give Asian small plates a try.

Have a go at a va­ri­ety of fla­vor­ful ap­pe­tiz­ers like dip­pable Chi­nese Shrimp Pot­stick­ers, which pair per­fectly with a sa­vory Thai Chicken Satay and Light Cu­cum­ber Salad. Round out your meal with a sat­is­fy­ing Korean Beef Bul­gogi and Kim­chi over Sticky Rice, fea­tur­ing ir­re­sistible and ex­otic fla­vors that can have your guests com­ing back for more.

To cre­ate im­pres­sive meals with a va­ri­ety of in­gre­di­ents, in­cor­po­rate an op­tion such as Nakano clean-la­beled rice vine­gars, which are avail­able in seven va­ri­eties and fea­ture easy-to-read la­bels show­ing no more than six real, rec­og­niz­able in­gre­di­ents to help en­hance the fla­vors of sum­mer­time dishes.
