All the dishes looked great but I would like to know who cooked what. If you wouldn't mind please repost your cook or you # in the throwdown. There were no losers here as I would be proud to claim anyone of them. Hope I'll be able to enter the next one. Great job everyone

    Much better in concept than execution. Turned out great, just not really photogenic. Better plating next time, I promise!

    The sauce:

    Coconut Pistachio Cream Sauce

    1/2 cup coconut milk
    1/4 cup pistachios, ground
    1/4 cup fresh lime juice
    2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro, plus an additional 2 tablespoons for garnish
    2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
    1 small clove garlic
    1 Serrano pepper, seeded and minced
    1 1/2 teaspoons agave nectar
    1/8 teaspoon salt

    The Spring Roll Ingredients:

    Cabbage, julienned
    Carrots, julienned
    Bean Sprouts
    Short grain rice
    Scallops, previously seared and seasoned with salt and cumin
    Pistachios, roughly chopped

    All ingredients stir fried and taken off to cool.

    Wok with one inch peanut oil heated to 400*. Spring roll wrappers stuffed with stir fried ingredients, and rolled. Spring rolls fried for 2-3 minutes per side until crisp. Served over more short grain rice, garnished with more cumin and cilantro. Sauced served on the side.

    they all looked great, yours included. it's not "lame". "lame" is not doing one.

    yours was pretty original.

  • I agree - I'd like to see who created which dish. They all looked great, I just wish I could have tasted them!

    I tried going back and right clicking the photos and looking at "properties" as someone mentioned, but not everyone uses their forum name for their Photobucket account.

    You guys did great - all the entries looked delicious!

    Congrats Michelle!!! It looked like a meal I would have loved to have tried... :)
  • Hey Fidel,

    Nothing lame about it - I love egg rolls and never would have thought of using scallops in them. Looks delicious to me - I'll be trying your recipe.

    I think it's hard to plate white rice and have it look good - especially on a white plate.

    Kudos to you and everyone else for entering.

  • FlaPoolmanFlaPoolman Posts: 11,672

  • Little ChefLittle Chef Posts: 4,725
    Fidel...How dare you call this "lame"? I loved your dish!! Very creative, and looked fantastic!! The only problem I had with it was that I didn't get to eat one of those rolls!! ;) Maybe I can try one in Atlanta?? :whistle: Great job! ;)
  • HossHoss Posts: 14,600

  • Congrats Michele! There were some fine looking meals with a lot of creativity and effort. Great job. :)
  • Little ChefLittle Chef Posts: 4,725
    Bacchus...You did a fantastic job!! I would never think to add pistachios to a pesto! Wonderful idea, and one I will remember!! ;) I also want to say I appreciate the fact you were willing to grill the seafoods direct! :) Nice grill marks, and a beautiful job on the plating! ;) Great job Bacchus!
  • JeffersonianJeffersonian Posts: 4,244
    Dang, Mike, I didn't think that was lame at all. In fact, it was my runner-up, and a dang close one, too.
  • HungryManHungryMan Posts: 3,470
    I'm not big on seafood and I would eat that.
  • Little StevenLittle Steven Posts: 28,742

    Congratulations on a great job and beautiful presentation. This is fun. Looking forward to the next one.
