Last week, I tried the Simply Asia Sweet Ginger Garlic Seasoning at Costco on the chance it might be as good as the Johnny's Garlic Spread. I needed recipes and was slightly disappointed by not having any included with the bottle; but, the website, address printed on the label, has plenty of recipes.
Stir-fry was first. I used this in place of my regular sauce.
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tbs turbinado sugar
2 tbs Simply Asia spice mix
Bob complimented the sauce without being asked. I will make that again.
I wanted to see what else the mix could do. This time of year, since we have so many cucumbers from the garden, I'm looking for cucumber recipes.
I tried marinating cucumbers in a variation of the Simply Asia coleslaw dressing recipe. With a few tweaks, due to what was on hand, here's my variation:
2 tablespoons turbinado sugar
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon Simply Asia spice mix
1/4 cup olive oil
Salt cucumbers and let stand for 30 minutes. Drain. Wisk together dressing recipe, pour over cucumbers. Marinate in fridge for a couple hours before serving - good, slightly spicy, but refreshing as a side dish.
I tried this dressing on chopped cabbage and liked that too.
