On such a powdery snowy day, we made this SUPER healthy Japanese food: Kombu seasoned Haddock, Ponzu Cabbage Hot Salad, Spinach Dashi Jelly, Potato Caper Dill
Can you guess why I told you that this is SUPER healthy?
The thing is to be cooked without any oil or fat!
Key is dried kelp which contains so good minerals and deep flavour -it's a treasure chest of Umami, not a lie.
Method is quite quite simple: wrap the white fish in dried kelp over night in a fridge and grill on low heat in an oven.
Kelp absorbs the haddock’s excess water and also infuses kelp’s flavour into haddock, so this makes haddock nicely firm texture and flavourful.
Actually this cooking method is very traditional in Japan, so it's not novel at all.
And I served Spinach Dashi Jelly and Capers Dill seasoned Potato alongside too.
I'd like to feel warm and spring even only at home, so tried to create spring atmosphere.
Would you fancy the recipe for this easy healthy dish?
Recipe is HERE.
Tomorrow will be snowy again too, stay safe and warm, everyone.
Oh a busy week for me has just started!
So this is just a quick sharing of recipe for you: Grilled Leek, Garic and Ginger with Anchovy (they are just beneath the mackerel in the photo, sorry for confusing you!)
Incidentally, a dish of photos is Cornish Mackerel with Leek, Garlic, Ginger, Anchovy & Yuzu Mayonnaise, Soy marinated tomato
This grilled leek is so so versatile as it's matching with oily fish and pork or just a garnish for any hot salad.
And so quick cooking as well.
Trust me, it's worth to try :)
Recipe is HERE
I hope you have a wonderful week.
Beautiful peaceful Cornwall -they gave me soothing time at any moment despite busy days for juggling my life.
The other day, I dashed into the kitchen and made a so quick cooking.
It was Chinese Warm Salad -Smoked mackerel, Pak choi, Brussel sprout.
It actually took 20 minutes, just 20 minutes!
And my family were so happy to have this, completely they devoured this.
So I'm sharing this recipe for you such a busy people!
Could you have a look at this RECIPE here?
I hope you have a wonderful & cheerful weekend.
Spring is around the corner, I bet so.
Sun shine has been strong and higher, bird singings has been changing and a cherry tree in my garden has started for blooming in Spring.
The early spring, there is nothing for me to be beaten.
Then here is the one which I showed my feeling: Pink Grapefruit, Soy Marinated Cornish Chicken
This dish is so traditional in Japan called Kuwa-Yaki.
Kuwa literally means hoe in English and it is said that ancient Japanese people hunted poultries using hoes.
(Incidentally Yaki means grilled)
A hidden flavour is this Japanese dried herb, Sansho powder.
I suppose "traditional food" sounds difficult to make for you, especially as it looks ethnic.
But...this is not at all, so so simple method and you don't need any special condiment: if you don't have Sansho powder at your kitchen, it doesn't matter if you skip the Sansho flavour for this dish.
Even enough flavourful :)
Would you be fascinated to try this Japanese dish?
Of course you can, here is the recipe just for you.
I hope you are having a relax evening.
After a hearty Sunday roast, usually I have some leftover.
This time it was Roasted Pork, so I remade the gravy into Japanese gravy using soy sauce, sake and honey and made the pork to be reborn as Pulled Pork.
And here is "Build your own wrap salad" with Japanese Pulled Pork.
I served not only plenty of fresh vegetables but also Bean Thread Noodle Oyster Sauce as garnish.
This is so healthy: no gluten, loads of vitamin!
I loved nice crunch vegetables, so clean!
If you have some leftover at your kitchen, why not try this arrangement for yourself?
I've shared the recipe of Bean Thread Noodle Oyster Sauce before, I hope this would be helpful for you.

See you soon everyone!
Everything and every moment have flown away in busy half term.
Spending time with my children are priceless and making them attractive is the most worthwhile work for me.
Finally, a routine life has come back to me (phew), then I've been so buzzing for sorting out all bundle of works.
And today I'd like to share a easy peasy quick recipe for you, busy mums and dads like me.
That's Soup Noodle with Wasabi & Ginger Lamb Balls
It would take your time less than 30 minutes.
Sounds helpful for you?
Have a look at the recipe
I hope you will enjoy the cooking.
Have a lovely week, everyone!
Snowdrop start blooming, the spring is just around the corner (hopefully!).
With such a delightful feeling, I made a bit unique sushi: Rice Paper Sushi -Teriyaki Salmon, Avocado, Baby Corn
Literally this is wrapped with rice paper instead of seaweed sheet, so that this appearance is much prettier, isn't it!
It's simple, you just swap seaweed sheet to rice paper, but please be aware that the rice paper is so easy to be soggy, so try to make the rice paper sushi JUST before your serving.
It's finally FRIDAY!! HooRaaay!
I hope you are having a lovely weekend, everyone.
It's already half of February, how scary!
I always try to not miss my children's growing changes but actually it's so hard as I have to juggle lots of bits and bobs.
Now it's half term, so good chance to catch up my children.
In short time between kids activities and chores, I made a healthy but easy quick dish:
Poached Scottish Salmon, Ponzu gelee, Mushed Coliflower, White Asparagus Sauce Hollandaise
This fresh salmon is simply poached in Japanese Dashi and cornstarch broth for short time in a oven.
Hence the salmon is so tender and flavourful as the thickness of corn starch is effective to retain the salmon's flavour.
This might sound complicated but actually it takes 8 minutes and this is so healthy to be cooked by no-oil.
And serve pan fried Kalette, Kale sprout, which is my kids' favourite alongside.
What will happen today?
I hope you have a wonderful Thursday.
Busy half term has started.
For such a busy day, this wintery stew is perfect- quick cooking, low fat but high protein and most of all keep yourself warm!
Chinese cabbage's season is autumn and winter, and I love it's natural sweetness when it's cooked.
This dish is easy cooking and it takes only 20 minutes.
Would you be intrigued to cook for your tonight?
It's worth to try, here is the recipe:
Have a lovely week, everyone.
This platter might be quite ordinary for Japanese friends (definitely so!), but honestly it's so hard to get such a Sashimi Grade Salmon in Cornwall as we're the most far end of the UK from the Scotland.
So, whenever we get Sashimi Grade Salmon, that is always special for us!
This time, as my brief trial, I made Roll Sushi using Rice Paper instead of seaweed sheet.
This was lovely taste and quite fun eating actually.
This week, we in Cornwall have been so cold and snowy days.
Kids LOVED snowy activities!
I hope you all had a safe time and now you are having a warm snuggling time in sofas!
