Chicken Satay Recipe

Chicken Satay Recipe

Another recipe that we created on our Asian Tapas night were these Chicken Satay Skewers. The reason why we decided we wanted to have this dinner theme night was because it reminded us of eating all the street food during the night markets in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Thai Chicken Satay is the perfect snack because it is healthy, low carb, and totally scrumptious. Plus, one you marinade the meat, it grills up pretty quickly! This is also our go-to recipe for a quick weeknight meal.

Thai Peanut Sauce Recipe

Thai Peanut Sauce Recipe

This is how to make peanut sauce right at home! We made this dipping sauce during our Asian tapas date night the other weekend. It reminded us so much of our trip to Thailand earlier this year. This peanut sauce recipe made enough sauce for our chicken satay, fresh shrimp spring rolls, AND took into account the sauce we were licking off of our fingers! This Thai peanut sauce is super easy to make and acts as THE BEST satay sauce.

"Better than P.F. Changs" Lettuce Wrap Recipe

There is a lot going on in Austin in the fall! All the food and drinks at Longhorn Football tailgate parties and the Austin City Limits music festival has us feeling stuffed like a turkey and it’s not even Thanksgiving yet! To balance it all out, we have been making our favorite low-cal, low-carb recipe almost every week. This lettuce wrap recipe will blow your mind. In fact, we ate at P.F. Changs while on a layover a few weeks ago and were FLOORED by how much tastier (and healthier!) our recipe was. Enjoy this as an appetizer or have it as entrée!

Hot honey and Sriracha Salmon Recipe

Hot honey and Sriracha Salmon Recipe

We heard that Hot Honey is a new culinary trend. After the Jacobsen’s Salt Company sent us a sample to try, it took us a while to figure out how we wanted to incorporate it into a recipe. Around the same time, we discovered a new fish company, The Seaforth Fish Company, who ships the freshest wild-caught salmon and halibut straight from the waters of Alaska. You can feel good about this sustainable fish company and their products are so fresh, healthy, and delicious!

Chinese Five Spice Chicken

Chinese Five Spice Chicken

Some people dread going to the grocery store. Well we LOVE it! We even like to make a date out of it by exploring a new ethnic grocery store together. We discover new foods to cook with and even get a good giggle at some very “unique” ingredients. When we visit the local Asian market we always buy loads and loads of dumplings to steam as well as a bunch of unique spices to play with. You don’t even need to head to a specialty store in order to get Chinese Five Spice and this is the star of our recipe.
