Oriental Shrimp Soup In Thai cooking -- such as this velvety coconut soup -- citrus appears in the form of lemongrass, a highly aromatic and flavorful herb that looks like a scallion but tastes like fresh lemons.
Asian Slaw Salad with Sesame Dressing The Asians' love of vegetables is legendary, and this crisp and crunchy salad is chock-full of raw vegetables.
Petite Spring Rolls These tender bites of rice noodles, fresh vegetables, and herbs are traditionally served for New Year's. Wrap each appetizer roll in rice paper, sheets of pressed rice paste that can be found at Asian specialty markets or some large supermarkets.
Thai Beef Stir-Fry Traditional Thai seasonings of fish sauce, lime, ginger, and hot red pepper combine with beef strips and vegetable for a colorful dish.
Almond Cake with Fresh Fruit This dense, rich nut cake provides a finish with a flourish and -- if you serve it with oranges -- a wish for good fortune in the coming year. In China, fresh oranges are a must at any New Year's celebration, as they are believed to be similar to a certain kind of fruit in heaven.
