I caught Guy Fieri's cooking show on Food Network. I loved this show because it was Asian inspired and it even included one of my favorite drinks in the Philippines, bubble tea (which is really almost any kind of drink with tapioca pearls, yum-o).
Here's Guy's video, making it look easy of course:
Here's my version:
Making the boats...
Boys checking it out...
- Make sure you cook the shrimp according to directions! I got the first part right but forgot about the sauce when I sauteed them. I couldn't figure out how they were so bland if there was jalapeno in the recipe! Jake re-cooked them for a tiny bit in the sauce and they were so much better.
If I were to do this again...
- I wouldn't! It was way too time consuming and complicated. The only recipe I would make again is the Fruit Salsa but without the mint. I also thought the rice was too sweet.
- It would be just as easy to sautee the shrimp in the sauce and eat it that way.
I did manage to go down to my Asian market to get the drink mix and black tapioca pearls to make my own version of my Zagu drinks in the Philippines. I have yet to make them but when I do, I'll have a review for this space.
