Last night, I had the wonderful privilege of enjoying food cooked by a true culinarian, my good friend, Cori. What's great about Cori is that she has the natural talent of traveling recipeless. She can sense a recipe's ingredients and recreate it with her knowledge of basic ingredients. And yesterday, for dinner, she created one of our favorite appetizers, Applebee's Chicken Wonton Tacos. (Except she made the recipe into tostados and they were even better!) Her recipe was very simple and it let the ingredients speak for themselves. In fact, the whole meal tasted like summer with its fresh ingredients and vast textures.
Chicken Wonton Tacos - (Deep-fried wonton wraps, grilled marinated chicken, an Asian coleslaw, fresh cilantro, and a squeeze of fresh lime)
Zucchini and Snow Peas (Fried in soy sauce, garlic and butter)
Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream
If that doesn't get your palate excited, then I don't know what can. It was delicious!
* This recipe was incredible, so I shall consult the chef to see if she is willing to share.
