This Blackened Chipotle Tilapia recipe is exactly how it sounds; spicy and delicious. You get a buttery filet that sears just enough to turn color but leave you with a tender fluffy-flaky fish that just melts in your mouth with every bite. And Thanks to the Adobo Sauce in the is recipe, you get a nice kick too which delivers a little bit of heat that I like to balance out with a mix of Mango, fresh Mint, Pineapple and Red Onion.
Tilapia Mango and Pineapple Mix
One thing that I’ve learned over the years is that fish and fruit is always a good pairing. P.F. Chang’s uses this Mango mix in their Curry Chicken Salad and it works really well with this too. So you get the best of both worlds because your tongue gets to dance back and forth between a sweet, minty fruit and a drenched, spicy Chipotle Tilapia.
This Chinese Barbecue Sauce is based on P.F. Chang’s recipe which is used in several different menu items, including: Spare Ribs, Pork Medallion and their Barbecue Chicken Salad. I’ve taken the exact Restaurant size recipe and dumbed it down to a house hold portion. And when I said this recipe is “based” on the Corporate recipe, I mean, it’s more or less the exact same one, only I cut the sugar in half.
The Barbecue Sauce Breakdown
Chang’s makes 5 gallons of this sauce at a time and 2 1/2 gallons of it is sugar. That’s just ridiculous. Half of their recommended sugar amount still gets you a fantastic BBQ sauce. So rest assured, knowing now, that you have everything you need to know about the China Bistro’s Barbecue Sauce Recipe!
I’ve also got their Spare Rib Recipe and their Northern Style Short Ribs Ribs recipe already filmed and posted below. And if you’re interested in my Oven Baked Ribs, those are listed here as well.
These Garlic Noodles are amazing and this is, by far, one of my favorite recipes. They’re pan fried egg noodle prepared with a simple oriental sauce. It has a fantastic garlic taste with a perfect balance of sweet and sour, cilantro and a splash of chili flakes for a little kick. This dish is popular on the menu at P.F. Chang’s and it only takes 10 minutes to make. So if you’re a garlic fan and you love Noodles, you should definitely give this recipe a try.
Garlic Noodles High Temperature
On a side note, most Chinese recipes, like these Garlic Noodles, are cooked with very high temperatures and heat that exceeds the standard house hold Teflon pans. That’s why Professional cooks and those rare few individuals at home use Woks.
Now it’s nice to have a non stick pan in the kitchen but we’re starting to learn about how bad that stuff is for our bodies, if consumed, and we all know it scratches easy. So I’m featuring “The Rock” by Starfrit, in this cooking video ,for obvious reasons. So far, I am really happy with this pan and I’m not getting paid to say it either.
