Easy Sesame Fish Kimchi Taco is super easy yet fancy East meets West fusion meal that will become a staple in your house.
We love having a potluck gathering with friends every now and then. Good company and a great spread of food on the table. I often brought Asian food, because that’s what I’m familiar with and cook at home most of the time. I know our circle of friends enjoy Asian food too. A conversation about fixing an Asian meal came up while we were gathering the other day. Some friends said that they found it challenging having to cook Asian food because there is often a long list of ingredients that they have never even heard of and so many different types of sauces are called for in just one recipe sometimes. So, more often than not, they feel defeated!
Truth to be told, I feel the same way too sometimes, especially when time is not on my side and I’m in the rush of trying to churn out a meal. How often I wish I could have some ready-made sauces on hand because that will cut down on some prep time.
Asian food has sure gained some momentum and is increasingly popular these days. If you ever wandered down the condiments, Asian food, or International/global food aisle at your local grocery stores, chances are you will see lots of sauces and other Asian ingredients there. I often stroll that aisle and guess what I found the other day…. NEW P.F. Chang’s® Home Menu sauces available in Teriyaki, Sesame, and Kung Pao at Walmart. All three are my family’s favorite! The first thing I made with one of the P.F. Chang’s® sauces I got was this Easy Sesame Fish Kimchi Taco.
You can consider you have won half of the battle really by using P.F. Chang’s® sesame sauce in this recipe. It helps to cut down on prep time. Seriously Asian cuisine made simple! I love the combination of sesame with fish. It reminds me of mom’s home cooking.
For baking/ kueh making: I highly encourage to weigh ingredients with a digital kitchen scale instead of using measuring cups as they are not very accurate especially when it comes to recipe that requires precision.GRAMS TO CUPS CONVERSION (UNSIFTED)
