Stretched ‘Grilled’ Shrimp (nobashi ebi yaki)

I’d been wondering for a long time about how shrimp is stretched for tempura, but in particular for grilling as done for the Nobu recipes. Tsuji discusses the topic on p.237,238 of Japanese Cooking: A Simple Art about making a series of horizontal cuts across the shrimp belly and then tapping the back with the back […]

Nobu ‘Toro Rossa’ Sauce

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2011/01/01/nobu-style-saikyo-miso/ This weekend, my wife suggested we do at-home-korean-bbq with an eye to the fact that the restaurants in the area were going to be crowded due to the Easter occasion and the 2017 Boston Marathon.  While I knew korean bbq used ssamjang and salted sesame oil dipping sauces, I […]

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 […]

Sometimes, I just want a doughnut: Nobu West’s Chocolate Satandagi

As I was growing up, I remember having Dunkin Donuts Chocolate  (Butter)Creme Filled Donuts. Well over the last couple of years, I hadn’t been able to find them. I resigned myself to the fact that they weren’t ever coming back.  Dunkin’s had ‘officially’ discontinued them ( http://www.birdchick.com/blog/2007/02/dunkin-donuts-broke-my-heart?rq=donuts ) around 2007.  Last holiday season, I *was* […]

After pondering over the situation for a while I thought, “How about doing vegetable temaki from my omakase dinner at Nobu 57?”  I remembered the dish being: Vegetable […]

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2015/12/09/microbatch-vinegared-sushi-rice/ While I was at Nobu 57 for an omakase dinner, I took the opportunity to pick up a copy of Nobu: The Sushi Book.  While I was perusing its contents, I noticed a dish entitled Traditional Chirashi Sushi Bowl (p.106,107). It’s basically a braised chicken and root vegetable on […]
