Dive into a brand new Asian Food Channel original production, By The Sea With Ili!

Ever wonder what types of seafood they serve up in other part of the region? Ride the waves with Food Hero 2015 winner and culinary host, Ili Sulaiman this November on Asian Food Channel original series, By the Sea With Ili! Catch Ili sets sail to five Asian coastal cities and fishes out the most mouth-watering seafood dishes, while revamping the recipe with inspirations from each city’s unique cooking methods and flavors against the backdrop of some of the world’s most stunning beachside locations.

From Danang, Vietnam to Phuket, Thailand to Perhentian Islands, Malaysia, Ili dives deep into each city’s best seafood restaurants, explore beautiful beaches and experience up close and personal with local culture. Although close in proximity, these cities vary largely in flavours and traditions. At the end of every episode, Ili will whip up her delicious take on local seafood recipes, while staying true to each city’s unique culinary methods and flavours.

“I’m thrilled to embark on my very first original production and get the chance to unearth all the flavorsome dishes from each city! I believe food should be cooked from the heart and nothing beats understanding the story behind how these villagers and city dwellers prepare their dishes, and I then put my own spin on them,” said Ili.

In the episode premiere, explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Hoi An City, with Ili and meet with 51-year-old deep sea diving fisherman who hunts sea urchins for a living. She also meets a local that ignites her five senses with Spicy Clams in Hotpot, Spicy Snails with Lemongrass and Fresh Herbs and Fried Prawn Wanton topped with Crab Meat Sauce. Set against breathtaking views, Ili then whips up Crispy Noodles And Prawn Stir fry and Umai on Chinese Lettuce Leaves with Lemongrass Fried Rice.
