Summer Rolls ::: Peanut Sauce + Spicy Hoisin Dip

Shrimp Summer Rolls by KeelyMarie on

I love Asian influenced dishes.

I love fresh ingredients and healthier options.

I love dipping sauces.

This dish is obviously perfect to me! I was going to make these Sunday, but we were insanely hungover after my amazing bff’s (you might know her) engagement day/evening/all night party at the W in Ft. Lauderdale.

Sweet and Spicy ::: The perfect contradiction

Do you have a favorite flavor combo? One that your eye ALWAYS head to on a  menu at dinner?

I definitely do. I feel like it is a little bit weird.

I have an obsession with everything and anything SWEET AND SPICY! The contradiction is fabulous to me.

I think almost half of my recipes on the blog so far are categorized as sweet and spicy.

SWEET AND SPICY recipes pictured above:

Cracked Black Pepper Kettle Popcorn
Sweet & Spicy Shrimp and Veggie Pasta
Red Curried Vegetable Tomato Soup
Shrimp and Scallop Stir Fry
Taiwan Ramen Noodle Soup
Chipotle Honey Glazed Squash
Beef Lettuce Wraps
Cocktail Meatballs
The sauce on this pizza

And one recipe that has been popular are these copycat Hooter’s Boneless Wings.


AND if you really want to hear about a 360 degree edible contradiction:

Try and think of a dish that is hot and cold, sweet and spicy, crunchy and soft– ALL AT ONCE.

I’ll give you a hint.

It is popular at trendy southern California sushi restaurants. No clue? {You are missing out}

Ok fine here it is.

Crispy rice spicy tuna. Heaven. My all time favorite dish to order. Too bad Miami is way behind with this trend. Man, I miss our Sundays at Sashi with passion.

I am off to cheer myself up with a bite of some cayenne dark chocolate…
