 300 Best Stir-Fry Recipes Cookbook Review

A delicious cookbook written by Nancie McDermott

Last week I shared with you my review of The Healthy Slow Cooker 2nd Edition by Judith Finlayson and this week I’m super excited to bring you 300 Best Stir-Fry Recipes by Nancie McDermott.

Now, when I tell you that EVERY recipe in this book sounds absolutely delicious I’m not kidding!  I could literally eat almost a full year’s worth of stir-fry meals and not have a single bad meal.  When I was reading through deciding what to try I honestly wanted to try every single recipe!  It took me forever to narrow down which recipes I was going to share with you…luckily I get to share up to 3 so I’m bringing you 3 delicious recipes over the next few days!

Okay, enough about the yummy yummy food, let’s talk about the cookbook itself and why I think every one should have their own copy!  First off, this is a great book for new stir-fry cookers….I think this would make an excellent gift for a kid going off to college!  The beginning of the book breaks down the basics for you with an Equipment Glossary and Ingredient Glossary.  There are even directions on how to season your Wok or Skillet!  I really like how the Ingredient Glossary explains how each ingredient tastes…that way you have an idea if you need to substitute a spice based on taste preferences.

The recipes themselves are fairly easy to make and the directions are very clear.  I love the fact that there are cooking tips included with most of the recipes and many more contain variations….you can change recipes up depending on your preferences!

And finally, the pictures….I was drooling over all of the delicious pictures….okay, now I’m hungry and want to go stir-fry something!

Today I’m going to share with you the Lime Splashed Salmon with Chiles and Cilantro:

30 seconds

5.  Toss gently. Add fish sauce mixture, pouring in around sides of pan. Cook, tossing gently once or twice, until salmon is cooked through and evenly seasoned with sauce, 1 to 2 minutes more.
