Episode 425: Citrus-Mint Syrup
Guest Chef: Geoffrey Zakarian
Mint is no longer a mere partner to overcooked lamb; Ming’s Citrus-Mint Syrup is perfect for meat as well as seafood. Ming’s master recipe is used for Seafood Lumpias (a lumpia is similar to a spring roll), Pan-Seared Pepper Lamb Satays, and Blackened Scallops with Carrot Salad. The celebration of mint continues as Ming visits bar chef Candace Smith of Excelsior in Boston to break down the task of muddling mint for drinks and an intense dollop of fresh flavor. Special guest chef Geoffrey Zakarian visits the studio to honor Ming’s master recipe with his Sea Scallop Cru with Rosemary Honey Essence and Sea Bean Salad.
