There are some dishes that may seem a bit exotic but have really come from right here at home. From burgers to lobster rolls, these 3 Super Secret BBR Dishes You Never Knew Existed are as American as can be. So get ready for a treat! The best part is, you don’t have to go far to find them!
- Shrimp Tempura
If you’re looking for an Asian take on your favourite fried shrimp, try this crunchy version that takes just 40 minutes to make. The light airy batter is perfectly crispy without being too greasy, and it’s made with just six ingredients you probably have in your pantry already!
Tempura, or deep-fried, is a Japanese dish where food (mostly seafood and vegetables) is dipped in a thin, light batter that is then dipped into the hot oil. The batter is made with a base of flour, cornstarch, and an egg, and it absorbs very little oil when fried, leaving behind a light, crunchy coating.
Shrimp Tempura is one of the most popular dishes in Japanese restaurants and it’s easy to make at home too. It’s a light meal that can be served as an appetizer or main course, and it pairs perfectly with a delicious dipping sauce.
The key to making the perfect tempura is to coat the shrimp with a bit of cornstarch first. This will help the batter to stick, and it also keeps the shrimp from curling up during the frying process. The batter should be made with extra cold water, so it doesn’t absorb too much oil during the deep-frying process, resulting in a lighter, crispier final product.
- Lettuce Wraps
Lettuce wraps are a surprisingly tasty, easy, and healthy meal that can be eaten on the go or served to guests at parties. A great way to get more veggies in your diet, lettuce wraps are a delicious, low-carb and high-protein lunch or dinner option that’s perfect for busy weeknights.
To make a satisfying and hearty wrap, choose a flexible lettuce type such as butter lettuce or romaine. They hold their shape well as you roll them and are a healthier alternative to traditional sandwich bread.
If you’re serving them to a crowd, try pairing them with a keto-friendly cauliflower rice recipe. It’s a simple and delicious meal that’s sure to please everyone!
Unlike typical sandwich wraps, lettuce wraps don’t require any bread, so they are a healthier, low-carb and gluten-free option for those trying to eat clean. The best part is that they’re packed with nutrients like fibre, protein and vitamins A, C, E and K.
If you love Asian flavours, you’ll want to try these Asian chicken lettuce wraps. The filling is infused with curry powder to add an Asian flair that can’t be beaten! Plus, the mango avocado slaw gives these wraps an unexpected twist that makes them next-level good.
- Chicken Wings
Chicken wings are a popular appetizer and snack, especially around the Super Bowl. They pair well with beer and are an affordable meal that’s easy to share with friends.
You can find them fried, grilled, smoked or barbecued. They’re also served with a variety of sauces. They come in two basic shapes: drums and wingettes (flats). Drums look like small chicken legs, with a main bone running through the middle. They have less meat per wing than wingettes, but they have a high skin-to-meat ratio and tender meaty texture.
If you’re looking for a healthier option, you can try baking your wings in the oven instead of deep frying them. This is a great way to save time and keep the skin crispy while still maintaining a moist and juicy wing.
For a more spicy flavour, try adding hot sauce to your baking powder. Or make a batch spiked with a mix of melted butter, hot sauce and thinly sliced jalapenos for the hottest taste sensation.
Okay, so perhaps a couple was not as top secret as made out. However, there is no denying that these are some of the best ricette barbecue around!
