Episode 709: Panko/Dijon Mustard
Guest Chef: Greg Zaff and SquashBusters student
Saturday, December 5, 2009 on Public Television (check local listings)
This week’s serving of SIMPLY MING introduces two world travelers, Japan’s versatile Panko flakes from the East and Dijon Mustard from the West. To start, Chef Ming Tsai puts a sophisticated spin on chips and dip with his Panko Crusted Eggplant Chips with Dijon-Sour Cream Dip. Rather than making traditional beef meat loaf, Ming uses ground turkey and pork for a mouthwatering Dijon Meat Loaf. Later, Ming plays up the subtle flavor of trout in a Panko and Dijon Crusted Trout on Cucumber-Quinoa Salad. Greg Zaff, creator of the nonprofit SquashBusters – an organization that challenges and nurtures urban youth through the game of squash – puts on his game face while working with SquashBusters student Rodney to cook up Panko and Mustard Chicken Tenders with Vegetables and Honey-Dijon-Yogurt Sauce.
