Episode 615: Tamarind/Brown Sugar
Tamarind and brown sugar make a tart and sweet East-West duo in this week's SIMPLY MING recipes. For an easy all-in-one wok stir-fry, Chef Ming Tsai cooks up Sweet and Sour Chicken and Peppers. Then, Ming shares a recipe for Tamarind Marinated Shrimp and Brown Sugared Pineapple Satays, a great year-round appetizer that can be grilled outside or on a stovetop grill pan. Later, Ming is off to Miami to visit chef Michelle Bernstein, chef/co-owner of Michy's, to watch her combine the East-West pair into a delectable dessert, Tamarind Granita with Brown Sugar Pot de Crème. Back in the kitchen studio, Ming puts a tangy spin on a French classic when he creates Tamarind- Brown Sugar Creme Brulee.
