Steamed Tamarind Chicken
This is a healthy version of a Filipino dish called sinampalukan manok (chicken with tamarind). Instead of doing the traditional soup with chicken, I steamed the chicken and used the same sinampalukan manok ingredients as a dry rub. This recipe is under the category "I can't believe it's that easy."  You can also prepare chicken soup stock with tamarind and serve it on the side, making this a deconstructed version of the traditional dish.

Variations of this traditional recipe, "makshi basal," crop up all over Iran, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Israel, and the Palestinian territories, where it can be served as a hot mezze dish, or as a main course. Large golden or red onions are ideal for this dish, as the layers can be easily unravelled, stuffed, and rolled up again.Mezze by Ghillie Basan, photography by Jan Baldwin, is published by Ryland Peters & Small.

Green Papaya Salad with Candied Tamarind Vinaigrette
This is one of my favorite street foods — in Bangkok, where I first tasted this dish, they toss in fresh crab, shell and all. It’s a completely transporting experience: As you eat the salad you stumble on pieces of shell, their crevices filled with bright, tangy vinaigrette just begging to be sucked out. My version is vegetarian, but if you’re feeling adventurous, add some beautiful blue crab (shells are totally optional). See all salad recipes. Click here to see Fusion Cuisine, Tastefully Prepared.

This Tamarind BBQ Sauce is in the sticky, goey tradition of finger-lickin', (not the St. Loius-style spice rub type) but with a very unique twist. Tamarind is derived from the seed pod of a tree that is commonly harvested from the Carribbean and Thailand. The ripened pods are sticky and goey themselves, with a texture much like marmalade right from the tree. Prepared tamarind sauces and tamarind paste are readily available, but creating the paste right from the pods is easy. Simply cover with double the quantity of water and simmer for a few hours allowing the liquid to reduce by half. The push the contents thru a mess strainer, much the way one would do when making jam.

Tamarind Dorade
If you've never had it before, dorade, also sold as sea bream in some markets, is a wonderful firm, white-fleshed fish that cooks quickly and has a mild flavor. A neat little trick we use to get the skin nice and crisp is to lay another, smaller sauté pan on top of the fillet as it cooks.

Chilled Buckwheat Noodles with Hot-Sour Tamarind Broth
One of my favorite things to do on a free afternoon is head to Flushing, Queens, for chilled Korean noodles. But I also love hitting Chinatown for hot and sour soup. So in this recipe I brought the best of both of these Asian worlds together. You get the toothsome tug of the buckwheat noodles combined with the sourness of the tamarind, the sweetness of the pineapple, and the hotness of the gochujang paste. See all soup recipes.
