The fresh taste of parsley pops alongside Chinese wonton wrappers in this week's helping of "Simply Ming." To kick off the season, Ming's mother Iris Tsai rules the kitchen, helping him prepare three tasty dishes. First up, Ming and his mother prepare the perfect appetizer, flavorful Shrimp and Parsley Wontons with a Soy-Vinegar Dipping Sauce that will wow your guests. Then, for a spin on a classic dish, they put together a Crispy Wonton and Salmon Napoleon with Parsley-Roasted Garlic Puree.
In a nod to Ming's French training, Ming and his mother cook up Asian Pistou Dumplings Simmered in Lime Broth, a hearty, comforting dish that can be prepared all in one pot. Finally, Iris takes over and shows Ming how to make Pork, Shiitake and Parsley Shumai dumplings bursting with flavor. Guest Chef: Iris Tsai.
