No Waste Food Recipe: Salmon Flakes from Salmon Head & Frame

My strong Mottainai feeling especially occurs when I go to the fish shop – the bait section. There are so many edible parts of fish there. Some of them are the best part of the fish. And…, is this the price for this quality?! The bait section is honestly my treasure chest. So, what do…

One Pan Baked Salmon and Vegetables with Thai Dressing

I would like to introduce my One Pan Baked Salmon and Veggies recipe today. Well…, I have to admit that this is kind of recipe that I have been thinking to develop for ages, and then became overdue…hehehe… However, I have finally done it and am really proud of how it came out. I cooked…

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….

However, today, I would like to introduce another Tataki. This Tataki includes a completely different cooking technique from the seared Tataki….

Hot and Sour Soup with Salmon

My version of Chinese Hot and Sour Soup. It might be an old remedy, but, I somehow believe in Ginger and Garlic to beat a cold. I like cooking this soup when my family is not feeling 100% in the cold winter. While I use Salmon in this recipe, you can use a different protein…

Salmon Misoni – Simmered Salmon in Miso Sauce

Misoni is a classic Japanese way to cook fish, simmering in miso sauce. In Japan, Mackerel (Saba in Japanese) is commonly used for Misoni. I use Salmon here because Mackerel in Australia is not as fatty as the Japanese one, and I believe that fatty fish matches this miso sauce more. I use the tail…
