Delicious! Brown Rice Sushi Salad

It was last spring when I created this salad. It was when I was craving Sushi, specifically Chirashi Sushi. When you hear Chirashi Sushi, you might think a bowl of assorted sashimi arranged on sushi rice, which is often served in the Japanese restaurant. It was not what I was craving. What I was after…

The Secret to Crispy Tempura – Tempura Batter Recipe

If you remember, I was a TV star a few years ago -> Here… I have already shared my “losing” recipes (Cucumber Tataki & Salmon Namerou) on my blog, and today, I would like to share another one – my Tempura Batter Recipe. I have been asked about this recipe several times before, and I’ve…

Traditional Japanese Cooking : Simmered Sardines with Ginger

Raw = Fresh It is my food formula. When you think about Tsukiji Fish Market, you can see where my idea comes from. For this reason, I feel really strange to see a lot of fish shops in this city selling frozen fish. We buy our favourite New Zealand King Salmon from this fish monger….
