Chef Amir's Black Onyx Recipes
I recently had Malaysian Chef Amir Gan Bin, former consultant for Meat and Livestock Australia, teach in my class. We featured one of the best meats currently in the market, the Black Onyx beef, created from the most genetically pure Black Angus around.
Here are just some of the recipes we made from that class. Enjoy!
Vegetable Spring Rolls and Poached Shrimp with Sesame Dressing and Curry Dressing
12 8-inch rice paper wrappers or rice paper spring roll wrappers
1 small head of lettuce
1 medium cucumber, cut into thin strips
fresh herbs: asian basil, Vietnamese coriander, cilantro
1 medium carrot , cut into thin strips
1/2 lb. cooked meat or shrimp
Gather all your filling ingredients on plates: meat or shrimp, noodles, lettuce, cucumber, herbs and rice paper wrappers.
Add warm water to a large bowl. Quickly dip each rice paper wrapper in warm water for a few seconds and lay on rolling surface such as a cutting board or plate (they will still be slightly stiff).
On the 1/3 section of the rice paper wrapper closest to you, start layering your fillings. Lay your lettuce first on the softened spring roll wrapper, then the veggies & herbs, meat, and the noodles.
Start rolling the wrapper over the fillings away from you, tucking and rolling the wrapper with your fingers, making sure all the fillings remain tight and round within the rice paper wrapper.
Serve the rolls with poached shrimp and the sesame dressing and curry dressing.
