[하와이 오아후] 새우요리로 유명한 지오반니(Giovanni's) 새우트럭.

요즘 미국에서는 푸드트럭이 인기몰이라는데, 오아후섬에도 인기 좋은 푸드트럭이 있다. 그 이름은 지오반니(Giovanni's) 새우트럭. 사진 1. 슈림프 스캠피(Shrimp Scampi) 새우트럭에서 가장 유명한 녀석. 살짝 달달하면서 고소~한 맛이 아주 일품인데, 먹어보면 왜 유명한지 충분히 알법한 맛이다. 사진 2. 핫&스파이시(Hot&Spicy) 안주인과 똑같은 것을 먹기 좀 그러니 주문해 봤는데, 그냥 별로 중에 별로. 특별할것없이 그냥 매운 맛. 사진 4. 파인애플 사과 스무디 푸드트럭 옆에 있는 다른 주스 트럭에서 구입할 수 있다. 사진 6. 치킨 팟타이. 지오반니 트럭 근처에 있는 다른 푸드 트럭에서 구입한 것. 맛 자체는 그닥 나쁘지 않은데, 조금 짜다시피 간이 들어갔다. 그래도 부족한 배를 채워주기엔 부족함이 없었는데, 역시나 이거 먹으러 이곳에 찾아올 정도는 아닌 수준. 사진 7. 파파야 샐러드 싱가포르에서 먹었던 샐러드를 기대하며 주문했는데, 괜한 기대였다. ㅋㅋㅋ

Spring Vegetable Pad Thai
My roommate headed off to Thailand last week leaving me with nothing to do but to stare at her Instagram updates of all the fun and food she is having over there. As a result, all I have been craving for the past few days is Pad Thai. Normally I go the Panang Curry route, but I feel like returning to the basics. I saw this recipe and felt like my food prayers were answered. This looks like summer in a bowl! "Ingredients: 14 ounces pad thai rice noodles, or rice noodles of choice 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced 1 carrot, shredded 3 cups red cabbage, thinly sliced 2 cups edamame, shelled 6 spears asparagus, chopped - you'll cook them with the rice noodles and soy beans For the Sauce: 2/3 cup liquid aminos, or soy sauce 1/4 cup sesame oil 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter 1 teaspoon ginger, peeled and grated (fresh) For Serving: sesame seeds fresh cilantro, chopped soy sauce, to taste Directions 1. Add all ingredients for the sauce to a small blender and blend until smooth. Set aside. 2. Bring a pot of water to a boil and add the rice noodles. 3. Allow the noodles to cook until softened, about 8 to 10 minutes. 4. 6 minutes in to cooking, add the shelled edamame and the chopped asparagus to the hot water in order to cook the vegetables (you want to leave the asparagus al dente and not over-cook it). Note: if you aren’t using Pad Thai rice noodles, follow the instructions on your package of rice noodles 5. Strain the vegetables and noodles into a colander and immediately place in a large serving bowl. 6. Add the remaining vegetables, pour the sauce over everything and toss together. 7. Add salt and soy sauce to taste."

Thai Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Flautas with Spicy Peanut Sauce
In pursuit of the perfect sweet potato flautas recipe for dinner tonight, I found this little game-changer. Not only are these sweet potato flautas amped up in nutrition with the inclusion of cauliflower, but Thai-style Mexican food? This is about to attack like, five different cravings in one. Word. ------------------------------------------------------------- Thai Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Flautas Peanut Sauce: 1 cup peanuts 1 cup water 1 tsp brown sugar 1 tsp toasted sesame oil 2 Tbsp soy sauce 1 Tbsp lime juice 1 small red Asian chili Flautas: 2 tsp toasted sesame oil 1 stalk lemongrass, beaten and finely chopped 1 medium head cauliflower, finely chopped ½ yellow onion, diced 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 small red Asian chili, minced ½ sweet potato, grated ½ cup Thai basil ¼ cup cilantro, chopped salt & pepper cooking oil for frying 8 small tortillas (corn or flour) 1. First, make the sauce. Combine all the sauce ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. IF you have time, add another half or full cup of water and bring to a simmer in a saucepan as you prepare the flautas. If not, no worries! You can also just use peanut butter, instead of peanuts, if that's what you have on hand. 2. In a frying pan over medium heat, add the sesame oil and lemongrass. Let cook for a minute or two before adding the cauliflower. Cook for another minute (assuming the cauliflower is very finely chopped, if not — cook it longer! It needs to be softening before you proceed) before adding the onion, garlic, and Asian chili. 3. Cook for one minute before adding the grated sweet potato and half of the Thai basil. Cook for another two minutes before removing from the heat and adding the remaining basil, cilantro, and salt & pepper to taste. 4. In a clean, heavy frying pan, heat ½" of cooking oil over medium heat. Let it heat for at least 3-4 minutes before proceeding. Roll about ⅓ cup of filling in each tortilla to make eight flautas. 5. When the oil is hot, work in batches placing each flauta seam-side-down in the oil. Cook until each side is golden-brown, rolling over to get all sides. 6. Top with extra basil, cilantro, peanuts, and lime. Serve with peanut sauce.
Beer Battered Fish
Continuing with food spiked with some alcohol, I never knew that you could batter your fries with beer!!! who would have known that adding beer it would make your fish crispier and take that batter to the next level of flavor? Ingredients: - 2 cups (250 grams) all-purpose flour - 1 teaspoon (4 grams) baking powder - 1 (12 ounce) (355ml) bottle of beer, any light colored beer - 1 teaspoon (8 grams) salt - 1 teaspoon (8 grams) freshly cracked black pepper - 1 teaspoon (8 grams) garlic powder - ½ teaspoon (4 grams) cayenne pepper - 1 cup (125 grams) all-purpose flour (this is for dredging) - 1½ pounds fresh cod fillets, cut into long strips (5 to 6 inches long) - canola oil for frying - lemon wedges, for drizzling at the end - malt vinegar, for drizzling at the end - fresh parsley, chopped for garnish Preparation: 1) In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and beer until a smooth thin batter forms. If the batter is too thick add a bit more beer (or water or club soda) to thin it out. If the batter is too thin add a bit more flour to thicken it. It should be thinner than a pancake batter but slightly thicker than a crepe batter. Loosely cover with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature for at least 30 minutes but 2 hours would be better. 2) Cut the cod fillets into (5 to 6 inch) strips. My rule of thumb is that 1 (8-ounce) fillet can feed about 2 people. Pat the fish with a paper towel to make sure it is completely dry. Season both sides with some of the salt, black pepper, garlic powder and cayenne pepper. Reserve half of the seasonings for later on. In a shallow dish, pour the 1 cup of all-purpose flour and the reserved salt, black pepper, garlic powder and cayenne pepper, whisk or stir to combine. That is your flour dredging. We do this so the beer batter can stick to the fish. 3) In a large pot, or dutch oven, heat oil to 375°. If you fill up the pot halfway with oil, that should be fine. Once the oil is hot, the fish is ready to be fried. Working with one strip at a time, dip the fish into the seasoned flour, coat evenly on both sides. Then dip the fish into the beer batter, completely dunking it until it is fully submerged. Drain excess batter and then carefully drop the battered fish into the oil. Don’t overcrowd the pot, work in batches. 4) Fry for 4 to 6 minutes on the first side. Flip it over and continue to cook for another 2 to 3 minutes on the second side. Only flip the fish once. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels. Transfer to a cooling rack placed on top of a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining fish. To keep the fried fish warm and crispy until ready to eat, place the baking sheet in a 200°F oven. Serve warm with lemon wedges, malt vinegar and a sprinkling of chopped fresh parsley.

Make Super Easy Curry – Just 30 Minutes!
Let's be real. Getting a healthy, delicious dinner on the table can be a real chore sometimes, especially after a long, tiring day of work or school. That's why I'm always on the lookout for fast, easy-to-make recipes – then I've got no excuse NOT to eat healthy, homemade food! You guys are going to love this simple curry – it takes just 30 minutes to throw together, and won't leave you with tons of dishes to wash. Plus, it's like multiple recipes in one – you'll see why! Keep this on hand for those nights when you're too tired to cook; the promise of this delicious payoff for so little work will motivate you to forget the takeout, and whip up some curry. :) Step One: Choose Your Curry Sauce Depending on whether you're in the mood for a savory, lightly spicy yellow Indian-style curry, or a sweet Thai-inspired mango curry, choose one of the sauces above. They're both equally simple to prepare! Step Two: Choose Your Protein Vegans, are you in the mood for quinoa? For vegetarians, perhaps some paneer cheese. Or, if you're a meat eater, lean chicken or turkey breast would go great with either sauce, and you can even try a flaky white fish with the mango curry. Adventurous vegetarians might want to try subbing in tempeh or another meat substitute! Step Three: Choose Your Vegetables Snow peas, peppers, broccoli, carrots, zucchini, green beans, potatoes, even eggplant or butternut squash – choose a mix of your favorite veggies! Step Four: Cook It Up! Follow the recipes below and whip up your satisfying meal! :) Note: If you chose quinoa as your protein, cook separately, and then spoon curry on top to serve. Classic Yellow Curry 1 onion, roughly chopped 1 tsp each ground coriander, ground cumin, and ground turmeric 2 cans of tomatoes, chopped a pinch of sugar 1 inch piece root ginger, peeled and finely chopped 2 cloves garlic, chopped 2 red chillies, deseeded and finely chopped 12-14 oz. reduced-fat coconut milk juice of ½ lime 3 tbsp chopped cilantro In food processor, blend onion, coriander, cumin, turmeric, and 6 tbsps of water to make a paste. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a pan, and add paste, tomatoes, sugar, and 1 tsp of salt. Simmer, stirring often, for 5 mins. Stir in ginger, garlic, chili, and coconut milk. Bring to a simmer. Add protein. Cover and gently simmer for 5-15 mins (until protein is nearly cooked through). Add veggies. Remove lid and simmer over medium heat, about 5-10 minutes, until veggies and protein are cooked, and sauce has thickened slightly. Stir in lime juice and cilantro. Serve over rice or quinoa. Sweet Mango Curry 1 onion, finely chopped 1 red pepper, sliced 1 tsp medium curry powder 2 tbsp tomato purée 1 cup vegetable stock 1 tbsp mango chutney 12-14 oz. chopped tomatoes in tomato juice 7-8 oz. baby spinach, washed In a pan, heat 1 tbsp olive oil over medium heat and sauté onion and red pepper for 10 min or until softened. Stir in curry powder and tomato purée, and sauté for 30 secs. Add stock, chutney, and tomatoes. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Add protein; simmer for 5-15 mins (until protein is nearly cooked through). Add veggies, and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Stir in spinach just before serving, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve over rice or quinoa. YAY! That's how easy it is to have a delicious curry dinner for you and the fam :) Hope you guys enjoy! Let me know if you give one a try – I wanna see pictures and hear all about the reactions :) Tagging my foodie Vinglers – made this one for you guys with love! @alywoah @RobertMarsh @marshalledgar @thePinkPrincess @jordanhamilton @rodiziketan @JPBenedetto @Arellano1052 @amendasaeyang @Syowa @FreddyAlaniz @ericasyummyfood @HomemadeHooplah @cupcakelady @myfitfriends @ThyAreMyCreator @jazziejazz @NickyHerring @mandaheartsong @MikasaChan @lindathai92 @LizArnone @AaronFox @kaminisingh @damionreynolds @falcon4daisy @MissB82 @carolinian87
So Good Or No Good: Raw Fish, Anybody?
Welcome to this week's edition of the Funny Community weekly game - "SO GOOD OR NO GOOD"! At the beginning of every week, I post to ask your opinion on various things that a lot of people either strongly love or strongly hate, and then share the full community results! Last week I asked you how you felt about tartar sauce! Out of the 69 users who voted either way, tartar sauce was decided to be 'SO GOOD' by 44 voters. That means TARTAR SAUCE IS SO GOOD!!!!!!! (Shout-out to Team Salmon Burgers!) This week's game goes back to the subject of Japanese food. I've already asked you what your opinion on wasabi is (SO GOOD!), but now I want to know how you feel about raw fish. Do you dare order the spicy tuna roll or the salmon sashimi? Or do you stick to California rolls where it's safe? Is raw fish SO good or NO good? Raw fish is enjoyed in a number of countries - including Italy, Peru, Spain, and the Netherlands, but it's most famously served as Japan's sushi! And despite the fact that, you know, eating raw fish could result in acquiring parasites and/or mercury poisoning... It remains an extremely popular food all around the world! What do YOU think of foods like sashimi, ceviche, and carpaccio? Do you think raw seafood is SO GOOD or NO GOOD? Debate, debate, debate! @InPlainSight @jazziejazz @AimeeH @fallendendenjr @DianaCastaneda @RachelParker @GingerMJones @DenieceSuit @JuliaLynea @ButterflyBlu @KiKi29 @amobigbang @AluSparklez @jannatd93 @Ash2424701 @VixenViVi @JPBenedetto @XergaB20 @DanaNikole89 @JustinaNguyen @Priscillasdoor @melifluosmelodi @zwdodds @Animaniafreak @MattK95 @oniya @rcuero @KellyOConnor @KaraHevner @tashamarie22 @MaighdlinS @BeannachtOraibh @TerrecaRiley @WiviDemol @Taijiotter @animechild51 @MechelleLesane @RainaC3 @RavenQueen0810 @ChildOfSparda13 @babylynch @wonyeop316 @RiggaFoster @CelestHarbin @BluBear07 @ckienitz @shantalcamara @jiggzy19 @cthulu @ElizabethT @hyolouxx @maddiemoozer @StephanieStrawn @lovelikematoi @VeronicaArtino @chris98vamg @jltobar07 @LeonidLunar @JaxomB @MissB82 @Ragnorak @JessicaChaney @thetaz12 @Danse @TylerOrtega @iixel @ZoilaObregon @KingOfHearts @BTSARMYGIRL @IamSasha @frisk @Baekyeol27 @arnelli @TracyLynnn @rodiziketan @yashiracruz @LindsayCollier @TerraToyaSi @Inaritricx @KennedyCasey @KaityBliss @SarahCatherine @LenaBlackRose @fierywolf @Taigara @WatsonNotHolmes @TomHawthorne @BurningRed @petname83 @electica @armyauntie @keithhernandezj @psadkisson @BiancaMason @misssukyi @Luci546 @TurtleyTurtles @TylerCassalata @litwitjohn @nenegrint14 @MikeWolf @kvnguyen @MajahnNelson @matildajgarrett @BrookeStam @DawanaMason @TheDumDumTroll @CelinaGonzalez @NoxasExcrome @mommaG @ZwankimaWalker @onlyxmortal @Cereal03 @AnnieCanavas @drea4u @Ticasensei @VanessaAcosta @cheerfulcallie @ShakirBishop @EasternShell @ReynaWithLove @RosaArgueta @KDramaKPop1015 @seouls @sbeh @atmi @liakadir @JasmineWilliams @CandaceJordan @CPTdonut @Meeshell @Astrohelix @AlexAckerman @LAVONYORK @JosiTorres @fatimajj23 @MissT615 @JenelleEspinoza @MarvelTrashcan @shill317 @thekreviewer @ReadAnimateSwim @gabbycalzada @KrystalStar22 @hhead232 @wakleyjj @JasonLSR @IMNII @MaggieHolm @Heartofgold35 @RaquelArredondo @KiinLyr @Romana
Meatless Monday Recipe: Quick & Easy Pad Thai Spring Rolls
Making pad thai at home is deceptively easy, but making spring rolls is ridiculously fun! Combine both, and you have the pad thai tofu spring rolls below - a quick and creative meal you'll definitely find yourself making more than once. You should be able to find spring roll paper, tamarind, and chili garlic sauce in the ethnic food aisle of your local supermarket and most Asian grocers. 10-Ingredient Pad Thai Spring Rolls (Adapted From Minimalist Baker) MAKES 8 ROLLS INGREDIENTS: For The Spring Rolls - 14 ounces extra firm tofu 8 ounces white or brown rice noodles 8 - 10 white or brown rice spring roll papers 2 cups thinly sliced carrots 1 large handful fresh cilantro For The Sauce - 3 tablespoons tamarind concentrate 3 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce + more for tofu 3 - 4 tablespoons coconut sugar, agave, or maple syrup 1/2 lime, juiced 1 - 2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce + more for tofu For Serving (Optional) - Peanut sauce (Check out my Vegan DIY: Thai Peanut Sauce recipe card.) Sriracha Directions: 1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Wrap tofu in a clean towel. Set something heavy on top - such as a cast iron pan - to press out liquid for 15 minutes. Then cut into 1/2-inch wide rectangular strips. 2) Arrange tofu on the baking sheet, giving each piece some space so it can firm up. Bake for 28 - 30 minutes to dry and firm the tofu. For softer tofu, bake for 20 minutes. For firmer, bake for 30 - 35 minutes. Set aside. In the meantime, prep carrots, cilantro, and cook rice noodles according to package instructions, then drain and set aside. 3) To make the sauce, add tamarind, tamari, coconut sugar, lime and chili garlic sauce to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Once it begins bubbling, lower heat to low and cook for 3 - 4 minutes, stirring frequently.Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more tamari or soy sauce for saltiness, chili garlic for heat, coconut sugar, agave, or maple syrup for sweetness, or lime for acidity. Remove from heat and set aside. 4) Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add baked tofu and 1 teaspoon each chili garlic sauce and tamari or soy sauce, plus 1 tablespoon of the Pad Thai sauce. Sauté, stirring frequently, for 1 - 2 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside. 5) Add cooked noodles to the still-hot pan over medium heat and add remaining Pad Thai sauce. Use tongs to disperse sauce and toss noodles. Cook for 1 - 2 minutes, then remove from heat and set aside. 6) Assemble a station for preparing the spring rolls with a shallow bowl or plate (for dunking the rice paper), bring a kettle or pot of water to a boil (to cook the rice paper with), and a clean work surface (such as a large cutting board). Gather all ingredients and add hot water to the shallow bowl or pan. Let it cool for 1-2 minutes, then add 1 rice paper at a time and cook/soften for 45 seconds to 1 minute. Lift and let excess water drip off, then transfer to your clean work surface. 7) Top with pad thai noodles, tofu, carrots and cilantro, then roll over once, tuck in sides, and continue rolling all the way up. Place seam-side down on a serving plate or baking sheet and cover with a damp, room temperature towel to keep fresh. Continue until all spring rolls are prepared - about 8. 8) Serve as is with a bit more chili garlic sauce or sriracha! Another great addition is the aforementioned peanut sauce posted above. Best when fresh, though leftovers keep covered in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
3 Ways To Get Your Wanderlust Fix On A Budget
For people who don't feel right when their feet have been on the same soil for too long, you understand the hold wanderlust has over you. Looking up flight prices, addicted to hostel world, and the map on your wall is marked with every place you NEED to go to has you feeling all types of pent up and claustrophobic when you are home bound. So you also understand the horror of being landlocked not because you lack a sense of adventure, but because money doesn't grow on trees and neither does time off. However, never fear, because there are some ways to get that wander lust fix in-between trips. 1. Plan weekend trips to places you've never been before. I know leaving the country always seems so much better than staying in your own, but you need to toss that notion aside. Each country has something mysterious, amazing, and shockingly new that you are doing yourself an injustice by not traveling it. Start planning mini trips to states, or your countries equivalent of a state, (I'm from the US clearly haha), and go! It costs a lot less plus going somewhere totally new will feel awesome! 2. Do something you've never done before! Make your current home seem more exciting by doing something you have never ever done before. Adventure is everywhere, you just have to be willing to look! Go rock climbing the town over from you or google the nearest sky diving place. Take a hike on a trail you've never been on or even go camping with friends if you are to use to the city landscape. Mixing up life at home by making your own adventures can help you get a little dose of that travel feeling to remind you that the world truly can be yours. 3. Go out to eat at an authentic restaurant you never tried before. Wander lust is all about new experiences, so if you want to go to India, find a truly authentic Indian restaurant to lose yourself in for a meal. Food is one of the greatest parts about travel, so if you are really tight on a budget, one meal could get you your fix. Just make sure you do some research first to make sure your place can really sell you the culture you wished you were submerged in. Just remember, keep saving and take the plunge, travel is always worth it.
