Ok.. I know, this isn’t a typical “fall dish”  – but after gorging myself on all things “fall” I needed a  break.  Recently, I received a rice cooker from Zojirushi the to play with and so my thoughts took a bit of turn – and pointed directly towards the east.  I  started thinking about asian inspired dishes – and with a dinner parties looming on the horizon “menu development mania”took over.  So this week, I’ve  got an Asian inspired menu to share with you!!!

Every so often, I come across a recipe that I know is going to work – I know exactly how it’s going to taste and I know that I am going to love it – this is one of those recipes. It’s is a perfect first course for an asian inspired meal and would work equally well as an  hors d’oeuvres  or even as an amuse bouche. All the components can be made in advance so that all you need to do is dress the hamachi with the vinaigrette and serve … and wait for the accolades!!!!

I adore hamachi! Have not had any for a few months and I need to change that! The green coconut curry sounds like a great sauce. xo

You could also try this beautiful creation with Kona kampachi. It’s a very sustainable yellowtail from Hawaii and will be available again starting in November. Yea! GREG

Love love love hamachi! This green curry sauce sounds like a fantastic topping too. I just bought a whole yellowtail, so I think the next time I make it I’m going to use this curry sauce to dress it up.

I love hamachi! It’s my favourite! This looks elegant and incredibly delicious!

I love it as well and have to say, I could easily make a meal of it… especially with this sauce!!

Nancy, you’re right. This does look delicious!! Marche Moderne in Costa Mesa once served a hamachi appetizer with coconut milk and some other things. I was never to duplicate it exactly, but this dish reminds me of it. :) Beautiful!

This sounds fresh and lovely for any time of year! It looks beautiful on the plate as well.

This sounds divine. I love the coconut green curry vinaigrette with it!

I have to say, this dish does rock!! And speaking of “rocking” wait till you see what I am posting later in the week – your posts on cheesecakes truly inspired me!!!

Great photo and sounds delicious.

Thank you so much for stopping by the Table!!

That looks absolutely delicious! While I love hamachi, this sauce would go so well on many proteins. Hmmm, prawns in my fridge right now.


Nancy November 3, 2010 at 9:33 pm

This sauce would be amazing with prawns or fish… heck it is even good all by itself!!!

This looks every bit as delicious as the hamachi at Marche Moderne! I’m inspired to use the green curry paste that’s been sitting in my fridge.

This looks amazing! It would definitely be going out on a limb for me, as I rarely, if ever, have the confidence make Asian-inspired dishes, but I may have to give this a shot. It looks too good to pass up!

Hi Rich!!

This dish would be a great start on preparing Asian inspired dishes – it is quite easy and the results are truly delicious!! Thanks so much for stopping by the Table!!
