Sesame Oil

Sesame oil is a popular cooking oil often found in Asian cuisine made from toasted sesame seeds. Sesame oil’s nutty taste means that it is perfect for sauteing meats and vegetables along with adding into dressings and marinades.

What is Bok Choy?

Bok Choy is a Chinese cabbage which has a flavor between spinach and water chestnuts, though with a sweeter flavor. Bok choy goes great in dishes like this one along with other recipes like this Fish With Bok Choy

Why are They Called Snow Peas?

Snow peas originate from south west Asia and are also referred to as Chinese pea pods. They get their name from the fact that they are able to survive the harsh winter frost and snow. Unlike snap peas, snow peas are flatter and contain less peas in their pods compared to snap peas, they also have a less sweet flavor. 

Snow peas go particularly well in stir frys along with salads like this Asian Shrimp and Rice Salad.

When to use Soy Sauce

Did you know there are plenty of other applications to soy sauce other than stir frys. By experimenting with soy sauce in your other dishes, you can really get some unique and special flavors. Soy sauce’s unami flavor pairs very well with foods like meat, cheese, tomatoes, mushrooms and seafood.

You can use soy sauce to add flavor to your meals while cooking, or as a condiment if you feel that your finished meal could use some extra flavor.
