I made this version from The Complete Book of Japanese Cooking. Also, I did not have tea leaves so I used tea bags instead.

THANK YOU for posting this recipe! I had this dish at a local japanese restaurant and have been wondering how to make it! 4 stars instead of 5 because the restaurant told me the broth was made with dashi so the addition of dashi power or dashi broth instead of water would make this dish perfect!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Thoroughly salt salmon, and set aside for 20-30 minutes. Rinse off salt. Grill salmon for approximately 5 minutes. When done flake with a fork.
  2. Cut nori into 1/2 inch strips.
  3. Boil 2 1/2 cups of water, and allow to cool. Add tea bags, and let steep for 1-3 minutes.
  4. Divide rice into 4 bowls. Place a fourth of salmon in each bowl. Drizzle 1 tsp of soy sauce in each bowl, along with 1/4 tsp of wasabi, if using. Garnish with nori strips.
