So I was watching a teppanyaki video the other night (see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZX5w7bfO0Q – see time index 4:45-9:30) and in that video, shrimp was cooked teppanyaki style along with sauteed shredded hearts of palm and then finished with spicy lemon dressing.  One look, and I laid odds I could reproduce that at home.   It was basically […]

Nobu Quick Simmered Baby Octopus

For Labor Day 2020, I discovered that  my wife’s kick for mollusks – you know, clams, calamari…..now included baby octopus.  So she recently came home from food shopping and there was 1/2 lb of baby octopi.  What to do?  Fortunately, Matsuhisa-sama had a nice suggestion in Nobu Now for Quick Simmered Baby Octopus (p. 45,46).  […]
