Fried tuna steaks with Korean spice sauce is just the the dish you want when you’re craving a mouth full of flavor! This sauce for fried fish is zesty and delicious. You have to check out this amazing dish and try it out with your friends or family.

You will adore this Korean sauce for fried fish because of the engaging flavor combinations. For example the crushed peppercorns are lovely. Peppercorn is the fruit that comes from the flowering pepper plant. This spice plant is native to South India and used all over the world.

Other ingredients for the sauce include: 1 cup beef broth, 1/4 cup orange juice and
2 tbsp butter. Also 1 tbsp ginger paste,
2 tbsp brown sugar, and 2 tbsp red chili pepper. I also use 1 tbsp sesame seeds,
1/2 tbsp salt, and 2 tbsp dried gochugaru chili flakes.

You will love the flavor in this sauce for fried fish!

The gochugaru chili flakes are absolutely delicious with these fried tuna steaks. This Korean seasoning is made from seedless sun dried peppers. Gochugaru is also called Korean hot pepper flakes and Korean chili powder. It is absolutely essential in Korean regions!

That is because Gochugaru chili flakes are used in recipes like Gochujang, stews, soups, Kimchi, and the famous cucumber salad. Additionally it’s absolutely delicious in this particular sauce for fried fish. Other ingredients for the fish dish include: 4 boneless and skinless (10 oz) tuna steak fillets.

You will also need 4 cups vegetable oil for frying, 3 large eggs, 1 cup bread crumbs, and 1 cup all purpose flour. I also add 1 tbsp cornstarch, 1 tbsp salt, 1/2 tbsp pepper, and 1 tbsp red chili flakes into the dry breading mixture for the fried tuna steaks.

Tuna is a salt water fish related to the Mackerel. They come in a wide variety of sizes for example the Atlantic blue fin can weight up to 684 kg (1,508 lbs)! It’s one of my favorite fish to eat because it’s meaty and tender. Check out this fried tuna steaks with sauce for fried fish recipe below!

This recipe for fried tilapia has an amazing dried vegetable sauce. The fried fish is flaky and savory. Additionally it’s very quick and easy to pan fry which is great for family lunch or dinner.

I love this recipe for fried tilapia because this type of fish is so succulent.

It tastes really savory with this vegetable sauce which includes ingredients like vegetable broth, vegetable oil, sour cream, and lemon juice. The seasoning includes dried onion flakes, dried garlic flakes, and salt.

Other seasoning for the vegetable sauce includes dried red pepper flakes, cornstarch, and cumin. Cumin is such a bold and robust flavor with this recipe for fried tilapia. It originated in the Middle East and is now popular around the world.

Ingredients that you will need for this recipe for fried tilapia include 4 skinless boneless (8 oz) tilapia fillets, 2 tbsp vegetable oil, and 3 large eggs. Also 1 cup bread crumbs, 1 cup all purpose flour, 1 tbsp seasoned salt, and 1/2 tbsp lemon pepper.

They are mashed together which allows the citrus oil to fuse into the pepper. This particular recipe for fried tilapia with vegetable spice sauce only requires approximately 24 minutes to complete and makes 4 servings.

You need to properly bread the fish before anything else. Then heat some oil in a skillet before cooking the fish for about 10 minutes. You can make the sauce at the same time in a separate pan! See the full and thorough recipe and directions below.

Fried Salmon With Tuscan Lemon Sauce

Yum

Fried Salmon With Tuscan Lemon Sauce

I love this breaded and fried salmon recipe with Tuscan lemon sauce. It’s like a green cream sauce with sun dried tomatoes and it’s packed with flavor. This flaky fish with crunchy deep fried breading will satisfy all your taste buds.

Tuscan lemon cream sauce with sun dried tomatoes is mouthwatering. Sun dried tomatoes have such a uniquely superb flavor. They are made by placing ripe tomatoes in the sun for 4 to 10 days in order to lose most of their water content.

What I love about sun dried tomatoes other than flavor is that they keep a lot of their nutrients. They are rich in lycopene, vitamin C, and other antioxidants. It’s a lovely refreshing flavor with this fried salmon recipe. Other ingredients for the Tuscan lemon cream sauce with sun dried tomatoes includes salsa verde.

Green cream sauce with sun dried tomatoes is spicy and zesty.

This ingredient is green and very spicy! It’s a Mexican condiment made of tomatillo and green chili peppers. Something interesting about salsa verde is that it actually originated all the way back to the Aztec Empire! This fried salmon recipe also uses 6 (8 oz) skinless and boneless salmon fillets and 4 cups vegetable oil for deep frying.

You will also need 3 large eggs, 1 cup bread crumbs, and 1 cup all purpose flour. Don’t forget the 1 tbsp cornstarch, 1 tbsp seasoned salt, 1/2 tbsp lemon pepper for the breading! The Tuscan lemon cream sauce with sun dried tomatoes requires the following ingredients: 1 cup chicken broth, 1/4 cup salsa verde, 2 tbsp lemon juice, and 1 tsp lemon zest.

Also 2 tbsp olive oil 2 tbsp cream, 1/2 tbsp salt, 1 tbsp garlic flakes, and 1 tbsp dried basil flakes. The sauce ingredients I love the most with this fried salmon recipe include 1/2 tbsp dried oregano, 1/2 tbsp dried red bell peppers, 1/2 tbsp dried green bell peppers, and 1/2 tbsp onion powder.

Most importantly do not forget 2 tbsp chopped sun-dried tomatoes and 1/4 cup parmesan cheese for the best flavor. Furthermore 2 tbsp cornstarch helps thicken and bulk up the fried fish breading.

Fried cod fish recipes like these breaded fillets are so lovely with this green coconut curry sauce. I especially love thick sauce recipes with green curry paste like this one because they are packed with flavor. You will adore these unique flavors just check out the recipe below.

Fried cod fish recipes are so decadent and refreshing. The two most common species of this particular fish include the Atlantic and Pacific cod. This commonly eaten fish has a mild flavor and a dense, flaky, white flesh.

Fried cod fish recipes are also packed with omega 3 fatty acids. It’s the perfect fish to eat with sauce recipes with green curry paste. Green curry paste is a popular Thai recipe ingredient. The green color is derived from green chilies and tends to be more pungent yet milder than red curry.

More ingredients for this curry sauce include 1/2 tbsp salt, 1 tbsp coconut sugar,
3 kaffir lime leaves, and 2 tbsp lime juice. I also like to include 8 chopped Thai basil leaves. Thai basil leaves are the perfect flavor with fried cod fish recipes.

Thai basil leaves are native to Southeast Asia and provide an anise and black licorice type flavor. It is also described as slightly spicier than other types of basil. All you need to make these breaded fried cod fish fillets is 4 (8 oz) cod fillets, 4 cups vegetable oil, 3 large eggs, and 1 cup bread crumbs.

I also use 1 cup all purpose flour, 1 tbsp cornstarch, 1 tbsp seasoned salt, and 1/2 tbsp black pepper for the breading. Follow the simple fried fish and curry sauce recipe and directions below!

Butternut Squash Nuggets With Poppy Seed Sauce

Vegan breaded nuggets are seriously the best butternut squash recipe I have ever had. I especially love the combination of flavors like sweet, salty, earthy, and nutty. Recipes with poppy seed dressing are always a favorite of mine as well. Poppy seeds have a unique flavor that creates such a lovely sauce.

This really is the best butternut squash recipe because these nuggets are crunchy on the outside yet tender in the center. Butternut squash is also called butternut pumpkin because it definitely has a similar taste and aroma. It has a sweet, nutty taste and is packed with fiber, vitamin C, magnesium, and vitamin A.

I also love recipes with poppy seed dressing for good reasons! Poppy seeds are oilseeds and they come from the poppy flower. They are often used in sauces, baked goods, and pastries. Poppy seeds taste nutty yet slightly fruity when chewed or ground up.

Vegan mayonnaise makes a great binder for the breading.

The ingredients you will need for the best butternut squash recipe include: 1 medium to large butternut squash, 4 cups vegetable oil, and 1 cup bread crumbs. Also 1/2 cup almond flour, 1 tbsp salt, and 1/2 tbsp black pepper. Most importantly use 1/4 cup vegan mayonnaise as an egg replacement.

Ingredients for the poppy seed dressing include: 1 cup vegan mayonnaise, 1/4 cup full fat canned coconut milk, and 1/4 cup sugar. Also 1/4 cup white wine vinegar, 2 tablespoons poppyseeds, 1/2 tbsp salt, and 2 tsp onion powder.

Recipes with poppy seed dressing like this butternut squash recipe are the best! Other recipes to try with this sweet and salty sauce include salads with avocado. Fried tofu stirfrys are quite tasty with it too. I also love it on bean burgers with tomato and sautéed mushrooms!

These butternut squash nuggets take about 15 minutes to prepare then 20 minutes to cook. They make 5 servings which you can share with loved ones or store in a seal tight container in the refrigerator for another day.

Pineapple Zoodles With Spicy Cashew Cream

This zucchini noodles recipe with spicy cashew sauce is a lovely vegan dish. That’s because it’s packed with healthy vegetables, nuts, and even some fruit. If you’re looking for a delicious plant-based meal this is the one for you.

I adore any vegan zucchini noodles recipe. Zucchini noodles are also called “zoodles” for short. Zoodles are spirulized zuchinis cut in the shape of noodles. If you have a spiralizer, or want to purchase one, you can make your own zoodles at home. But if you’re not interested in that it’s no problem because you can buy premade zoodles at almost any local grocery store.

Cashew sauce is the perfect topping for this zucchini dish. This vegetable is a simmer squash that originated in Mesoamerica. It’s a thin skinned vegetable that can be green, orange, or even yellow. Zuchinis are rich in folate, vitamin C, potassium, and other nutrients.

If you love vegan food this dish is for you!

This zucchini noodles recipe only requires a few ingredients other than zuchinis. For example I use vegetable oil, minced shallots, and garlic. Additionally I love to add pineapple chunks, snap peas, and mini corn. Don’t forget to season with a dash of salt for flavor.

In order to make the cashew sauce you will need unsalted cashews, almond milk, and apple cider vinegar. I also include salt, pepper, black garlic powder, and nutritional yeast. Lastly I always use a splash of orange juice, paprika, chili powder, chili flakes, and turmeric.

Turmeric is a wonderfully nutritious seasoning to use with any zucchini noodles recipe. It’s an orange-yellow seasoning that comes from a flowering plant related to ginger.

Turmeric is a lovely seasoning for the cashew sauce. Also, if you really enjoy this sauce try it out with other recipes such as pasta and macaroni. Another recipe idea to try with cashew sauce is vegan cheese dip like nachos or on baked potatoes. You can even try it in salads or raw vegetable dip.

I love using red miso paste for the vegan peanut sauce recipe. The beans are fermented for at least one year and sometimes longer. This soy product is made of fermented soy beans and rice. It’s earthy and flavorful.

Red miso paste is delicious with sweet potato tacos because the flavors are meaty, salty, sour, and bitter. Other ingredients for the sauce include peanut butter, warm water, ginger, and soy sauce. I also use sugar, sesame seeds, orange juice, and rice vinegar.

Red miso paste adds a uniquely savory flavor to this dish.

The spice from the vegan peanut sauce comes from the chili powder and red chili flakes. Chili powder comes from the dried and ground up fruit of the chili pepper. Contrarily the chili flakes come from dried and crushed red chili cayenne peppers.

These flavors are so delicious with the sweet potato tacos which only require a few simple ingredients. All you need for the tacos is 8 mini corn tortillas, 4 medium to large sweet potatoes, vegetable oil, and some salt. I also add sesame seeds, shredded purple cabbage, lettuce, and carrots.

Other recipes to try with vegan peanut sauce include things like noodles, stirfrys, and sweet potato fries. It’s great with appetizers like fried and breaded vegetables and onion rings. Other ideas to try with this sauce include salads, veggie burgers, and even sandwiches or burritos.

Bean Tacos With Spicy Cream Sauce

Bean Tacos With Spicy Cream Sauce

Beans make the best meat replacement for any vegan taco recipe. They’re healthy, hearty, and filling. Additionally they taste so delicious with vegan sauce recipes like this spicy cream one made with delicious plant based ingredients!

The best vegan sauce recipes have a little spice! Like this one made with vegan mayonnaise and sriracha. Unlike regular mayonnaise, the vegan version does not contain eggs. Vegan mayonnaise is made of nuts and or seeds and their corresponding oils.

Sriracha, on the other hand, is a type of paste or hot sauce made from chilis. It usually contains some other ingredients such as vinegar, sugar, garlic, and salt. It’s so delicious with this vegan tacos recipe for which we are using pinto beans.

Pinto is a common bean popular in the United States and Northern Mexico. They are rich in protein, fiber, iron, and other nutrients. Other ingredients for the sauce include soy milk, apple cider vinegar, cornstarch, vegetable oil, and salt.

Vegan sauce recipes are best with a dash of spice!

Furthermore all spicy vegan sauce recipes need to have chili powder and chili flakes! They’re the perfect seasonings for this zesty vegan tacos recipe which uses ingredients such as mini corn tortillas and canned pinto beans. Other ingredients for the tacos include vegetable oil and salt.

A good plant based main course has to have some vegetables as well! That’s why I also include sautéed mushrooms, zuchinis, sprouts, and a dash of cilantro. I make the tacos by sautéing the veggies with the beans before filling up the tortillas.

Vegan spicy cream sauce tastes delicious with a wide variety of dishes too. For example tofu or veggie nuggets, steamed vegetables, and artichokes. I also love to use this sauce when I make thick and hearty soups or even baked potatoes. Basically anything salty, savory, and starchy is going be great with this particular creamy sauce!

Apple Fried Rice With Coconut Flax Sauce

Yum

Apple Fried Rice With Coconut Flax Sauce

Easy fried rice with asparagus tips and drizzled in sauce with coconut is a delicious vegan dish. I love adding chopped apples as well for a refreshing crunch. You will adore these flavor combinations.

Another fun and unique flavor I use in easy fried rice is wasabi. Wasabi is simply Japanese horseradish made from a mustard type plant. A paste is made from the ground rhizomes of the plant which is pungent and tastes similar to hot mustard.

Other ingredients for the easy fried rice and sauce with coconut include cup white rice, water, vegetable oil, and chopped apple pieces. Also white onion, asparagus tips, and soy sauce. Soy sauce contains a lot of salt already that’s why I don’t add any to the rice recipe.

You want to cook the rice separately before adding it to a frying pan. Where you should have already sautéed the onions in oil, soy sauce, and wasabi. Mix the cooked rice around then add in the asparagus tips and apples.

Any sauce with coconut flavor has a lovey unique flavor.

In order to make sauce with coconut I use coconut yogurt. Coconut yogurt is made of ingredients such as real coconut, coconut milk, and coconut cream. It also usually contains something like rice starch. Additionally this sauce also contains flax meal to thicken, flavor, and nourish.

Flax meal is a healthy addition to easy fried rice. Flax meal is ground down flax seeds. Flax seed crops go all the way back to Ancient Egypt.

Sauce with coconut also uses orange juice, sugar, and salt. It’s super simple to throw the sauce together after cooking the easy fried rice. The first step is to combine the coconut yogurt and flax seed meal in a large mixing bowl. Stir them together before adding the orange juice, sugar, and salt.

Furthermore, if you enjoy the flavors of this sauce, try it out on other recipes like baked vegetables. It’s really good with butternut squash or baked pumpkin as well. Also coconut flax sauce is delicious with vegan lettuce wraps using tofu or beans! You can even heat it up in a pot and add some curry spice and vegetables for a lovely soup.
