Hong Kong Style Pan-Fried Noodles
There's no need to boil: just toss in a skillet for crispy noodles with meaty mushrooms and bok choy. A little chili sesame oil helps wake everything up.
Chorizo and Eggs
This dead-simple recipe employs the controversial addition of raisin, but chorizo and eggs are still made for eachother: the eggs soften the aggressive spices, and the chorizo in turn imbues the whole dish with heat and flavor.
Pan-Fried Skate Wing with Capers
Nick lands a hard-to-find skate wing and it discovers it "crisps up beautifully" in a skillet; a caper sauce is the simple finish.
Fava Beans with Grilled Zucchini and Homemade Garlicky Croutons
The combination of flavors and textures in this salad keeps it interesting: just-soft grilled zucchini, al dente fava beans, the garlicky crunch of homemade croutons, and the salty crumble of Parmesan cheese.
Chicken And Eggplant in Black Bean Sauce
Not necessarily authentic, but delicious: lime juice, honey, ginger, and eggplant all mix together in a satisfying combination.
