Roses are red, violets are blue.... this dinner will make you the luckiest lover in the world!
If your special someone loves chicken, here's an easy chicken dish: CHICKEN WITH SESAME
small bottle of oyster sauce
small bottle of sesame oil
2 shredded scallions in 3 inch in length
sesame seeds to sprinkle over the dish
(if she or he loves hot, then get sriracha chili sauce).
1 bunch of cooked broccoli florets( s/b emerald green color), douse under cold water to stop cooking process.
1. Buy chicken breast, blanch in hot water until entirely cooked. Shred chicken breast by breaking up the chicken breast into thin strips with your fingers.
2. Drizzle about 1 1/2 table spoon of sesame oil and 1 tablespoon of oyster sauce. Throw in the sliced scallion and mix gently. can you appreciate that sesame aroma mixed with the oyster sauce. and set the mixture is a serving plate. Surround chicken mixture with broccoli florets and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top.
Have 2 candles lit side by side by the dish, one on each side. Have napkins folder with clean silverware on top of napkins. Because we are using chicken a nice glass of white wine is a great pairing. (Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio)
Shrimp Lover: Shrimp with Red Sauce
2 tablespoon of sugar
slurry solution (cornstarch and water)
1. To make it easy, purchase cooked shrimp that has been deveined. for 2 people about 1 pound.
2. You should have kechup and worchestershire sauce.
In a non stick pan, drizzle a little oil, add about 1/2 cup of ketchup and a 1/4 cup of worchestershire sauce. Add some sugar if the sweetness of the ketchup is not enough. Mix well and medium heat. add about 1/2 cup of water to make a delicious sauce. Mix well, add garlic powder. Sauce is kind of watery, we now want to thicken the sauce up.. Taste the sauce, are we missing anything? add more? Add slurry to sauce while constantly stirring with a wooden server.
Not to thick and not to watery. Add shrimp and coat with sauce and allow heat to heat up shrimp in the warm sauce.
Add shrimp to a white platter, give it a nice contrast.
folded napkins and silverware. Wine of choice is white wine with all seafood. Candles on each side of dish.
Shrimp and chicken are the most popular but tomorrow I'll have a nice beef dish and the wine of choice is a nice red wine.
