Well hello friend! It’s been a while since I’ve hopped onto the old blog. Summer has been such a whirlwind of travel and sunshine and time with friends and family that recipe creation has fallen a bit behind.

However! I just bought a new house last week and the kitchen is my favourite room. It was the first room I set up and I wasted no time playing around with a new recipe for you. I had a ton of cilantro, a package of ground pork, and one sad little lime that needed using so I figured I could make something happen with that!

This recipe is packed with herbs and spices that provide a huge flavour punch! Cilantro is also great for helping the body’s natural detoxification processes, which makes it a great addition to your meals to help balance out the summer fun. 😉 

I am also obsessed with anything that has toasted sesame oil in it, so obviously I had to add that to help round out the flavours. I threw these bad boys over a salad and they made a perfect summer dinner. You could also try them with this Avocado Ginger Lime Dressing (always a huge hit at my cooking classes!) or top with some sliced avocado and pickled ginger.

Tastes great with my Tahini Yogurt Dipping Sauce or Avocado Ginger Lime Dressing.
