Nobu Hakuni-Style Simmered Anago/Sawara

In continuing my exploration of simmered/poached seafood, I thought about Hakuni-style Simmered Anago from Nobu: The Sushi Cookbook (p.89). Unfortunately, I couldn’t get my hands on anago, so I looked up the closest substitute for it.  A close substitute was suggested from  the Sarafina Center@http://safinacenter.org/programs/sustainable-seafood-program/ocean-friendly-substitutes/ The Sarafina Center commented: (Freshwater Eel)…Try Spanish Mackerel or American […]

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2014/08/13/rock-shrimp-miso-risotto-from-simply-ming/ I recently re-saw an old Iron Chef America episode between Morimoto and Wadi featuing mackerel. I got intrigued by the mackerel confit on ‘mackerel flavor’ risotto.  It’s interesting to note that Iron Chef Morimoto did a similar dish as an omakase offering using salmon at his New York restaurant. […]

Mackerel Shioyaki And Vegetable Salad From Nobu West

Sakana Shioyaki (aka literally fish, salt-grilled) is a traditional Japanese method to cook fish.   I’ve done it many times before. This time I was curious to see what the combined flavors with a sherry vinaigrette dressed salad from Nobu West‘s recipe (p. 180) would be like. Basically the recipe is set up in two parts […]

Kikunoi’s Komochi Ayu/Saba/Sawara With Sweetened Walnuts

A few years ago, I’d gotten a copy of Yoshihiro Murata’s Kikunoi: The Exquisite Cuisine Of Kyoto’s Kikunoi Restaurant.  I wish I’d known about the restaurant when I visited Kyoto back in 1988. Not knowing when I’d get the chance to revisit Japan, I thought I’d try to do a few dishes from his book while […]

(ahem, with apologies to Dwayne Johnson) It was a surprise being able to get my hands on mackerel tonight (7 Aug 2012).  I’d been really wanting to do this dish.  I wanted to do a cooked version of the classic mackerel nigiri/sashimd […]
