14. Mapo Tofu
Tender tofu cooked in an umami and spicy sauce, accompanied by minced meat (or mushrooms), Mapo tofu is one of the tastiest ways to prepare this healthy ingredient.
💬 “I’ve cooked this dish many times now and it has become a family favorite. It’s a great, year round dish IMO.”
Tender fish fillet poached in seasoned water, then topped with spices, Sichuan boiled fish is a classic dish not to be missed (It doesn’t taste as spicy as it looks).
💬 “Exceptional! The balance of flavors, heat, and buttery texture of the fish was delicious and rivals a restaurant experience.“
Tangy, glossy broth filled with diverse flavours and textures, it’s a must try Chinese dish. This recipe provides tips on how to cook it in the authentic way.
💬 “This is the best hot & sour soup recipe by far…I have tried at least 20 over the years. Thank you for such a great and easy recipe.“
Skip the take-out and cook this delicious pork fried rice in less than 20 minutes. Enjoy the mix of fluffy rice, tender pork and crunchy veggies coated with umami-filled seasoning.
💬 “This is the perfect pork fried rice! I’ve tried a lot of recipes that were either horribly inauthentic, or so complicated that making it was a chore. Delish, and simple.”
Fried to a crispy texture and served with an aromatic seasoning, Chinese salt and pepper shrimp can be made at home to a restaurant standard. Learn my tips and tricks!
💬 “Totally scrumptious. Couldn’t be any easier to follow! Your recipes are definitely the good taste I miss!“
A delicious combination of two common ingredients, Chinese ginger chicken delivers complex aroma and flavour, yet is amazingly simple to cook.
💬 “Absolutely delicious made as is and served with rice! I used leftovers the next day to make a ginger chicken wrap, again delicious.“
If you could only try one dish while exploring street food of Sichuan cuisine, I’d highly recommend Dan Dan Noodles. This recipes shows you how to replicate the authentic flavour in your own kitchen.
💬 “An excellent recipe, clear, well explained, easy to follow and very very good. Highly recommended.”
A legendary dish made easy, this Peking duck recipe doesn’t require any special equipment or advanced skill. But it still tastes so satisfying!
