I have another shoot coming up this week so I've been busy doing all the things that I have to do to prepare for being in front of the camera with a whole bunch of confidence. I've been doing a lot of working out, tanning (Mystic), and eating right.
I've really been enjoying my new kitchen. There is so much room to prepare dishes. I love it!
And since I've been eating all healthy, I thought that I would share a great low-fat gourmet recipe that I came across recently...
Asian Chicken Burgers with Wasabi Ketchup
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10-12 minutes
1 pound ground chicken (or you can use ground turkey)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 tablespoons ketchup
1 teaspoon wasabi paste
4 whole-wheat rolls
1 small red onion, sliced
1. In a large bowl, combine first 7 ingredients well. Shape mixture into 4 patties, each about 1 inch thick.
2. Coat a large grill pan (the George Foreman Grill works great!)or griddle with cooking spray and set pan over medium heat. When pan is hot, add burgers and cook 5-6 minutes per side until cooked through.
3. Meanwhile, mix ketchup and wasabi paste well in a small bowl.
4. Place burgers on whole wheat rolls (or wrap with lettuce for a lower carb alternative) and top with ketchup mixture. Garnish with cilantro and red onion slices.
