Crunchy Coconut Chicken Noodles features a velvety coconut sauce infused with zesty lime and a hint of Thai pepper, served over egg noodles alongside shaved carrots, bell peppers, tender chicken, and fresh cilantro, all garnished with a delightful crunchy pistachio topping. Crunchy Coconut Chicken Noodles is highly influenced by Thai cuisine. There are many typical elements, like lemongrass and coconut milk, but no ginger or strong curry. No peanut butter, *Satay, or hoisin sauce either. I really wanted to highlight the coconut flavour, often overpowered by other sauces or ingredients. I also wanted to counterbalance all that coconut sweetness with freshness and no better ingredients than lime and lemongrass! Pistachio Yum I love pistachios! I would put them in every dish if I could! And though I needed some crunch texture to make this Coconut Chicken Noodles dish whole, I’ve used fancy pistachios instead of the obvious peanuts! A pure…

If you are one of those “soap” tasting people, substitute it with some basil. Plus, since the carbs are low, the avocado will help satisfy and…

An unctuous orange sauce made out of papaya and white wine mustard covers the shrimps. Accompanied by a crunchy yellow bell pepper and cilantro leaves for an asian/tropical influence. A lovely recipe with lots of character! This flavor is a combination of sweet and sour with a touch of spice, it has an asian/tropical side to it, or more precisely it’s a kind of curry with extra mustard flavor. Fresh, light and easy to prepare, another beloved “done under 30 minutes” meal. I’ve used a wok for this recipe although a pan would do as well. A nice crunchy yellow bell pepper and cilantro leaves are going to accompany to perfection this meal. The peppers aren’t cooked here, to keep the meal extra fresh and crunchy, although if you prefer… add them to the shrimps to warm them up a bit. The highlight of the dish lie in the sweet and sour…
