The Emmy®-nominated series "Simply Ming" ushers in its seventh season with more of chef Ming Tsai's mouthwatering recipes. From pantry to pot, Ming continues to merges onto one plate East and the West ingredients, such as coconut milk and cranberries, panko and Dijon.

Sushi is a Japanese specialty enjoyed all over the world, and is particularly popular here in America. Ming shares the basics of this simple and healthy specialty, and develops a Master Sushi Roll: this includes three different varieties of Nigiri made with Tuna, Striped Bass, and Ribeye, and two handrolls made with Tea-Smoked Salmon and Avocado and Grilled Shrimp Salad.

Ming also creates two Maki Sushi made with Grilled Vegetables, Tea-Smoked Salmon and Cucumber. A Hot Sushi Cake with Spicy Tuna Poke completes the tasting platter. Ming heads over to Oishii restaurant in Boston, MA, to learn different tricks of this century-old practice. Back in the studio, guest chef Beau MacMillan of elements restaurant in Arizona uses Ming’s master recipe to create Seared Scallops with Maitake Ginger Garlic Cream and Rice.
