This week on "Simply Ming," Chef Ming Tsai introduces tamari, the original soy sauce of Japan, to olive oil, which the ancient Greeks considered to be liquid gold. Using a wheat-free, organic tamari, Ming first prepares a Tamari Marinated Tofu-Cucumber Salad, a perfectly refreshing and safe dish for people with a wheat allergy.

Then, putting a spin on a traditionally French recipe, Ming cooks up Asian Ratatouille with Couscous.

Later, he prepares a New Style Salmon Sashimi, an understated appetizer sure to wow your guests.

Finally, Ming is joined by his parents, Iris and Stephen Tsai, who put the East-West ingredients to work with Tamari Pork and Bell Pepper on Olive Oil-Noodle Cake.
