One of my favorite types of sushi. I normally make this into "fat rolls" or Futomaki. If you are not familiar with Wasabi start with a little as you can always add more if needed. Serving size will vary depending on the thickness of your sushi.
Cooking time does not include time for cooking rice
These patties may remind you of Tempura but are really quite different. Serve them with a nice spicy sauce or with soy sauce. Some like to put butter on them. It depends on your meal or if you are eating them as a snack. They are very tasty. The number of srvings will depend on how you are using them. They make excellent appetizers if you make tiny pancakes
This dish is one of the delights of summer in my opinion! I first tasted it on the plane to Japan, and I've been hooked ever since. You can make it as simple or as complicated as you wish by adding more garnishes eg. shredded egg omlette, sake steamed chicken, cooked shrimps etc etc. Even the garnishes I've listed are optional!
Literally translated, tsukimi means "viewing the moon". The egg in this dish represents the "full moon" surrounded by "clouds" of noodles. It is traditionally served in the autumn but I love it all year long. For some reason, I find it very romantic.lol.
I love tofu...I like how it picks up the flavor of whatever sauce it's coated with. I especially liked this recipe where the tofu is browned a bit before having the sauce poured on top. This can be served warm or at room temperature. It would be a good addition to a bento box (Japanese boxed lunch). I found this gem in the Chicago Tribune, which attributes it to Ron Bilaro.
Tofu in the west is often used as a meat substitute for veggies, it was also used for this purpose by Buddhist monks whom first introduced Vegetarian cookery to Japan. This dish is a modern addition to their traditional dishes.
I like to serve with rice and make double the quantity of sauce to pour over. I also put my tofu out to drain before I go to work so it is ready to go when i get back
Japanese rolled omelet is called tamagoyaki or dashimaki. It's also known as a Japanese-style egg roll. Tamagoyaki is often served for Japanese-style breakfast. Also, it's one of the most popular dishes in Japanese bento lunch boxes.
There are many types of tamagoyaki. Some are sweet and some are salty. Also, you can add fillings in tamagoyaki to make it colorful. Create your favorite tamagoyaki! Posted for ZWT II '06
A really interesting use for green tea and a great way to use up leftovers. A classic light meal or snack in Japan. Typically, this is accompanied by an assortment of bright, crisp pickles (not the American kind!). From "At Home with Japanese Cooking" by Elizabeth Andoh.
This is my favourite dish. This is like fried rice wrapped in egg. This is so delicious and My mom cooks this really well. One day, I cooked this with my mom and this time, I want to share this with all of you. My mom sent me the recipe.
My family looovess these rice balls and they are often requested at get togethers. A simple recipe. It can be served as an entree with the salmon or the salmon can be left out. Make sure to wet your hands in water so the rice does not stick to your hands.
This is the recipe for Sushi rice that I have learned from my father, the Sushi chef at Minado sushi. It's not really a secret recipe, many restaurants prepare rice this way, but it produces really great rice. More of a technique than anything. This is a response to a request in the forum and I hope you guys like it!
