Episode 609: Madras Curry/Olives
Madras Curry and Olives may seem like an unlikely pair, but this East-West duo works well together in this week's SIMPLY MING dishes. In the studio kitchen, Chef Ming Tsai makes an all-in-one Eggplant-Olive Tapenade with Pita Chips, an easy appetizer that you will want to make every time you entertain! Ming combines the ingredient pair in one pot to create a deeply-flavored Roasted Curry Chicken with Olive Orzo Stuffing.
In his travels to Chicago, Ming visits Rick Tramonto of Cenitare Restaurants LLC, who puts his spin on the East-West ingredients, cooking up Madras Curry Chicken Paillard with a Green Olive and Preserved Eggplant Panzanella.
Back in the studio, Ming prepares Seared Curried Butterfish with Warm Olive Chutney, a version of one of Blue Ginger's most popular entrees.
