‘Boiled’ Anago/Sawara, Nobu-Style

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2016/04/09/nobu-hakuni-style-simmered-anagosawara/ Today was a very warm fall day and I was thinking about wanting to have una-don for dinner. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any store bought unagi.  I did have a nice large sawara fillet.  Remembering how I prepared sawara hakuni-style, I thought I could prepare the sawara fillet using […]

Sake Kawa Yaki (Crispy Salmon Skin)

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2012/10/16/tori-kawa-yaki-grilled-crispy-chicken-skin/ Sometimes when we get a nice piece of salmon fillet, before I portion it (if the recipe calls for a skinless fillet), *I* will take the skin off and reserve it for making crispy salmon skin.  Usually, I use it for making onigiri.  Additionally, the Nobu cookbooks have a […]

A quick note on tosazu

Nobu Scampi/Langoustine With Spicy Lemon Garlic Sauce

I’d been dreaming about making this dish for years since I’d gotten Nobu: The Cookbook (pgs 50, 51, 172).  While I’ve regularly been making things like shrimp/lobster with spicy lemon dressing, it was only yesterday (20 Jan 2017), that I’d discovered that Eataly Boston’s Pescheria@Prudential Center had fresh live langoustines.  Vinny at the Pescheria counter […]

Nobu Spicy Sour Sauce

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2011/02/25/nobu-hk-spiny-lobstershrimp-and-tamari-sichuan-soy/ * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2014/01/20/rearranging-nobus-baked-monkfish/ So tonight (2 Nov), I found out my wife wanted me to cook monkfish for dinner.  So the first thing I thought of was to make Matsuhisa-sama’s baked monkfish dish with tosazu.  Unfortunately, I discovered that I didn’t have any rice vinegar and I didn’t have any […]
