I had such high hopes for this recipe. It’s called Happy Union from this cookbook (If you are logged into amazon, click Look Inside and do a search for the recipe). I had been planning on making this more than once. This time, I was going to cook everything on the grill and then follow the recipe from there. Instead, I mostly followed the recipe except for the amount of oil, the chicken marinade and the vegetable used 😀 – you know, just a little. I didn’t marinate the chicken because it was supposed to be grilled. I still poached both the asparagus and chicken according to the original recipe. With the shrimp, garlic and ginger, I only used 1 tbsp of oil. With a non-stick wok, I didn’t think it was necessary to use a total of 4. I also got about 6 servings of the recipe instead of the assumed 4.
OMG – this was so good and so simple. It took a little time because I wasn’t prepared, but it is definitely a sauce I could see tossing with some leftover meat/protein and large veggies. I don’t think something like corn or peas would work in this. But leftover broccoli, cauliflower, etc? Oh yea. It was a good salty, a little tang of pepper, but not enough garlic…..cause, I’m a garlic freak. Definitely make this.
