Ming Tsai Scallion Panko Cod And James Beard Tartar Sauce

Recently, I was thinking of doing Nobu-style Fish And Chips ( https://www.bbcamerica.com/anglophenia/2012/04/watch-nobu-chef-on-japanese-food-vs-british-food-plus-recipe-for-nobu-fish-and-chips ); I’d seen another version of this dish in Nobu West that was basically a terrine-based preparation (p. 114) It was intriguing to hear that the Queen doesn’t like traditional fish and chips, but rather panko crusted fish, chips with hollandaise.

Shabu Shabu

When I was growing up, my folks would occasionally have sukiyaki and shabu shabu at home.  With the bad weather this past weekend, my wife suggested it might be nice if we did a shabu shabu for dinner.  This is what she had in mind: But a shabu shabu isn’t complete without dipping sauces.  I […]
