Gwyneth Paltrow's Adobo With a Twist
July 10, 2014 11:46 AM EST
People worldwide have lauded adobo, a Filipino dish, for being tasty and easy to make.
Recently, Hollywood Star Gwyneth Paltrow shared her own take on the famous dish on her lifestyle Web site Goop. In celebration of Independence Day 2014, Paltrow featured her adobo recipe, which she got from the cookbook "Smoke & Pickles," authored by Chef Edward Lee.
The 4th of July Cookbook Club on her Web site tagged the dish, "Filipino adobo, not the Spanish version." The actress specifically indicated vinegar is an essential ingredient to brighten the richness of the fried chicken and as aid in digestion.
Paltrow recommended using "Datu Puti Toyomansi," a Filipino condiment, in making the mix. According to her, home chefs can add or reduce the chilli, depending on how spicy they prefer the dish. She previously poured the condiment while looking for the right Asian flavor in making a vegetable dish.
She cited the dish is made by first poaching chicken in a mix of soy sauce, vinegar, salt, sugar, black peppercorns, finely minced garlic cloves, red pepper flakes and bay leaves. After several minutes, the chicken pieces are breaded after being dunked in buttermilk and then fried. A special dipping sauce is made using maple syrup, lemon juice, peppers and soy sauce. Finally, waffles are added to the mix.
Although the Philippines boast of a wide array of tasty and exotic delicacies, adobo is one dish that foreigners always end up liking. Several stars from Hollywood and other countries shared their fondness for the Filipino food such as Cameron Diaz, Mario Maurer, Adam Sandler and Zac Efron.
The Web site Goop noted, "From creating a delicious recipe to finding a perfect dress for spring, Gwyneth began curating the best of lifestyle to help her readers save time, simplify and feel inspired."
Paltrow has been very active in the kitchen lately, sharing her homemade recipes and those inspired by her favorite dishes from around the world.
When preparing chicken and vegetables, Paltrow confessed how much she liked Asian flavors and making a unique dipping sauce for her whole family to enjoy.
