Mascarpone cream sauce with variations op. 16 (Shrimp Cake)

Here is a shrimp cake that uses Food Couture's original mascarpone cream sauce. Because the sauce is so wonderfully rich and creamy, it adds great depth to the shrimp cake flavor. The orange vinaigrette adds a bright, fresh touch, too. These cakes are an easy recipe to make and great for dinner.

Here's an easy seafood recipe that has a wonderful exotic flavor. It's Asian sautéed swordfish, with Food Couture's own original orange dressing. Accompanied by a delicious array of crunchy vegetables, it's similar to a salad, but unlike any salad you've ever had before.

If you have a craving for some Mexican food, here is a recipe for you - a many-layered Tex-Mex Gratin.

Mint & White Fish Roll with Meunière Sauce

Mint & White Fish Roll with Meunière Sauce

The other day, I introduced a dessert dish that used my father-in-law's fresh mint plants. Here is a main dish using them. It's white fish with a Meunière sauce, with a bit of soy sauce too (my Japanese twist). The real kick, though, is the fresh mint - its aromatic poignancy brings the dish to a new level.

Pork Loin with Fig Sauce

Pork Loin with Fig Sauce

After my savory hot sandwiches (a previous recipe), I wanted to cook something else with the extra figs. So I created a new rich, delicious sauce using the figs, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, and a few other ingredients. I decided the perfect match for the sauce would be a tender, juicy pork loin. Putting those together makes one great dinner.

Napa and Chicken Enchilada

Napa and Chicken Enchilada

This is something for people who love the taste of Mexican food, but are trying to cut down on carbs. It's a chicken enchilada, but wrapped with Asian napa cabbage leaves instead of tortillas. It has less carbs, but tastes just as good (better?) than the original. Adding avocados and sour cream sauce makes it even better.

Salmon Cake with Wasabi-Dill Sauce

Salmon Cake with Wasabi-Dill Sauce

The crab cake is a favorite American food. I love the taste of salmon, so decided to create a salmon cake. Golden brown and delicious with that salty salmon flavor. To compliment it, I whipped up a smooth and creamy wasabi-dill sauce.

La Cake Salé (Savory Pound Cake) for Christmas

La Cake Salé (Savory Pound Cake) for Christmas

"La Cake Salé" (pronounced "sal-A") means "cake of salt" in French. Cake Salé is savory cake, which looks like pound cake, but tastes like quiche. Cake Salé is very a pragmatic dish, basically prepared with any ingredients (vegetables, meats, etc.) you can find in your refrigerator. Cake Salé is usually created shaped like a pound cake, but since it is the Christmas season, I made my version more festive by using a fluted mold pan, and served with tomato sauce.

Cream Cheese Stuffed White Fish

Cream Cheese Stuffed White Fish

White fish generally has a mild flavor, so I wanted to create something that accentuates its strengths. I added the richness of cream cheese and the punch of soy sauce and scallions, to create a velvety, smoky dish. It is delicious, bite-sized, (and cute!) This dish could be served as either appetizer or entrée.
