9780066211190: Asian Grilling: 85 Satay, Kebabs, Skewers and Other Asian-Inspired Recipes for Your Barbecue

Now you can bring the authentic tastes and techniques of Asian grilling right into your own home. Su-Mei Yu, renowned Thai chef, teacher, restaurateur, and award-winning author of Cracking the Coconut, shows you just how easy it is to grill in her new book, Asian Grilling.

Su-Mei captures the splendor and diversity of Asia's cuisines -- Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Korean, Indian, Burmese, Laotian, and Cambodian -- in this superb collection of 85 recipes. With Su-Mei's guidance and clearly written recipes, you'll be able to cook some of the world's most delicious grilled foods, including Indian Chicken Tandoori, Vietnamese-Style Grilled Beef in Lettuce, and Thai Grilled Pork Strips.

Asian Grilling begins with some of the better-known Asian dishes such as Chicken Yakitori, Pork Satay, and Lamb Kebabs. Su-Mei then takes you through her own treasured recipes for Salt-Grilled Yellowtail Tuna from Japan, Vietnamese Grilled Shrimp on Sugarcane Stalks, Bulgogi (Korean Barbecued Beef), and so much more. Along with these dishes, you'll find recipes for zesty dipping sauces and flavorful relishes to enhance every bite.

In the "Wrapped and Grilled" and "Grilled and Wrapped" chapters, you'll learn how each cuisine uses leaves and casings to make grilling pouches. When these pouches are opened at the table, they fill the room with a unique and savory perfume. The large green leaves of the banana plant are used to wrap everything from Malaysian Spicy Fish Cakes to Chinese-style grilled chicken. In true fusion style, Su-Mei encases a warm filling of grilled vegetables and cheese in a tortilla to make one of her favorite recipes, Thai Quesadillas. Even the ubiquitous lettuce leaf makes a great wrapper for curried lamb, grilled shrimp, and more.

Grilled vegetables and salads, main course rice and noodle dishes, and even grilled fruit desserts round out this collection. There are also detailed instructions for preparing the grill and making spice pastes and essential tips on shopping for and preparing Asian ingredients. Stunning color photographs illustrate how the dishes look.

Turn your kitchen into an Asian barbecue. It's easy with Asian Grilling by Su-Mei Yu.

Review:

In her award-winning Cracking the Coconut, Su-Mei Yu offered one of the best introductions to "cooking Thai" we have. Her Asian Grilling moves beyond Thailand to include the mouthwatering satays, kebabs, skewers, and other tempting grilled dishes from that country plus Vietnam, Korea, India, Burma, Laos, and Cambodia. With Su-Mei's help, and an outdoor grill, this intensely flavored food is easy to prepare; readers should waste no time in trying any of her 85 recipes, including super versions of more "familiar" fare, like Mongolian-Chinese-Style Lamb Kebabs, as well as "newer" recipes such as Garlic-and-Pepper Shrimp and Kumquats, spicy Myanmar-Style Grilled Duck, and Grilled Scallops with Pineapple-Chile Glaze in Endive.

After providing key technical info (for authentic taste, Su-Mei champions use of the traditional mortar and pestle, though she also endorses the blender with a few procedural adjustments), she then offers her skewer repertoire, which can be matched with zesty dipping sauces and flavorful relishes like Tomato and Chile Sambal or Indonesian Peanut Sauce. Companion chapters, "Wrapped and Grilled" and "Grilled and Wrapped," present alternative versions of traditional case-cooking in dishes like Grilled Marinated Catfish in Banana Leaves and Korean-Style Grilled Beef in Lettuce. Equally tempting are recipes for grilled salads like the feasible-to-fix-after-work Thai-Style Grilled Eggplant Salad; noodle and rice dishes, including Soba Noodles with Grilled Vegetables and Sesame-Ginger Dressing; and grilled desserts, such as Grilled Mangoes with Ginger Syrup. With a separate section on making the required spice blends and pastes, tips on shopping, and color photos throughout, the book opens grilling vistas to those of us inclined to simply throw some hamburger on the barbie again, for want of a better way. The dishes are also just plain fun to prepare. --Arthur Boehm
