This Miso Ginger Salmon is one of my most favorite dishes at a local Japanese restaurant. It’s the perfect blend of salty and tangy, and works like a dream with the slightly sweet and smoky salmon.
I’m going to cut right to the chase here…this Teriyaki Meatball Bowl was amazing! My kids loved it, as did my husband and I. I used ground chicken for the meatballs, but ground pork or turkey would work well too.
One of the vegetable dishes that I love to do is stir fry veggies. They are so simple, but really delicious, every time. It doesn’t matter what kind of vegetables you have on hand – or even whether they’re frozen or fresh (or a combination of both). I frequently use fresh onions, peppers and carrots with frozen broccoli and peas. You can also add a can of baby corn, if you like. I don’t use a lot of seasoning on my veggies, just enough to add a little flavor to them. They go so well with teriyaki chicken, grilled salmon or even steak.
If you are new to the shishito pepper craze, don’t be worried that they are spicy. In fact, shishito peppers are actually very sweet and mild. And there are a ton of incredible shishito peppers recipes out there to try. One of the most popular, is an Asian style shishito pepper.
Treat yourself to an easy weeknight dinner recipe that the whole family will love! This Slow Cooker Asian Chicken and Noodles Recipe serves up chicken that has been slow cooking all day in a delightfully flavorful Asian-inspired sauce, and is ever so tender and juicy.
One of my favorite low calorie side dishes to order when eating out at a Japanese Restaurant is miso soup. It’s a great way to fill up before a meal so I don’t overeat. And when I’m eating at a Japanese restaurant, it’s usually sushi that I’m ordering, and I can sure get myself into trouble overeating that…yum!
I have a minor obsession with Shrimp Spring Rolls. While I love the roll itself, I am mostly just looking for a vehicle for that delicious peanut dipping sauce they come with! Sooooooo GOOD. Light, fresh, doesn’t involve cooking….perfect for a hot summer’s day lunch. Never thinking that it would be a feat I could conquer, for months, I toyed with the idea of trying to make my own Shrimp Spring Rolls.
Another great Weight Watchers Crock Pot Recipe that is super easy, delicious and just 5 Points + per serving. This Crock Pot Chicken Teriyaki Recipe was a hit with the whole family. I ate mine as is to avoid adding extra Points Plus, but I served my families over some rice, and they LOVED it.
Hope you all enjoyed Super Bowl Sunday! But if you are like me, and may have went a little overboard with all the game day goodies, then my take on a Japanese Cucumber Salad Recipe is the perfect cool and crisp side salad to add to your meal today. It’s so light and refreshing, and at just 1 Points +, it’s a great way to bulk up a meal without using a lot of your Weight Watchers Points.
Indulging in Chinese fast food has always been a favorite past time of mine, which is one of many reasons why I’m now a Weight Watcher :). But being on the Weight Watchers plan doesn’t mean I have to give up my favorite foods, it just means I have to either A) Eat them sparingly or B) Find healthier, low Points ways of making them. Usually, I choose the latter because that means I get to eat my favorite foods more often. One of my go to healthy recipes that I rely on when I’m craving some Asian Noodles, is this Sesame Noodles with Vegetables.
