I love dabbling with different cuisines and so, predictably, experimenting with sauces is one of my favourite passtimes.
I recently tried out a couple of very interesting sauces from Yutaka– Tangy Yakisoba and Sesame and Miso nutty sauce.
I loved both sauces. I used the Yakisoba sauce to make a lovely chicken and vegetable stirfry.
It was quite quick to put together. I simply diced a breast of chicken and chopped up half a courgette/zucchini , a red pepper , and half an onion. I heated some oil in a wok, stirfried the chicken on high heat for 2-3 minutes. I poured in the sauce and cooked for another 2 minutes. Then, I threw in the vegetables, gave then a quick stir and threw in some roasted cashewnut. I ate this with some steaming hot rice, but it would be delicious with noodles as well. You could use this for any meat , tofu, white fish, prawns or even vegetables.
I made a quick light salad with the Sesame and Miso sauce. The sauce has a really light and refreshing taste and brings through the freshness of the vegetables.
For the salad I used 4-5 red radishes and 1 gem letuce cut fine. I poured a couple of tablespoons of Miso sauce on this. That’s it! It was really delicious. The crisp fresh lettuce and the mild radish went very well with the light nutty sauce.
I loved the sweet and savoury taste of the Yakisoba and the nutty freshness of the Sesame and Miso sauce.
The sauces are availabe to buy from Tesco at £2.30. I think they are quite nice and make experimenting with food a tad easier.
Do try them out.
