Tai-Meshi (Sea Bream Rice) - from Tsukiji Inner Market / Jonai Shijo HIEI - Video Recipe

Tai-Meshi (Sea Bream Rice) is one of the most popular dishes served on festive occasions, such as birthdays, New Year, weddings, etc… However, of course, it can be also served on a regular day!!!

July 15th 2016 was 大安 戌の日 (Taian Inu no hi) which is the best calendar day to pray for a safe delivery. Thus, we've been to the Suitengu shrine in Tokyo where is well known for praying for a safe and easy delivery. We also gave thanks for the easy delivery of our daughter.

Then we visited Tsukiji Jonai (inner market) on the way back to home. We bought Tai (sea bream) at 樋栄 (HIEI) for 1300yen (about 13 bucks)! It was a great deal. They cleaned the fish and filleted in 2 pieces. We made Tai-Meshi using the bone side of the fillet. Poêle with the other side. Fish bone clear soup with the head. We added the memorial rice we received from the shrine to cook Tai-Meshi :)

3. Place the rice in a pot, add water to the appropriate level indicated in the pot, add Sake, add light soy sauce, then mix well.
4. Clean Konbu with moistened towel and place it on top of the rice. Then place the sea bream on Kombu (in this way bones won't fall into the rice).
5. Place the pot into the rice cooker. Cover and press the button to start.
6. When it's done, take the sea bream and Kombu out from the rice cooker. Remove the bones and put back the fish meat, then mix in.

Koinobori (こいのぼり) is carp-shaped wind socks traditionally flown on May 5th in Japan to celebrate "Tango no Sekku" (端午の節句), boy's festival, in honor of sons and in the hope that they will grow up healthy and strong.

This is the way I love to eat Shirasu Don! Of course you can eat it in the way you like ;) There is no rule. hehe


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0ZwYyK6d90

My neighbor gave me delicious Kamaage Shirasu (boiled whitebait). If the fish is frozen, you can defrost it in the fridge overnight. Or 2 hours out from the fridge. Or place it in a Ziploc Bag (make sure water doesn't come in) and place it under running water for 15 minutes.



---------------------------------
Boiled Whitebait Rice Bowl

Difficulty: Super Easy
Time: 5min
Number of servings: N/A

Ingredients:
a bowl of cooked rice
boiled whitebait
Daikon Oroshi (grated Daikon radish)
thinly sliced Shiso leaves
soy sauce

Directions:
1. Defrost Kamaage Shirasu (boiled whitebait) as needed.
2. Top a bowl of rice with plenty of Shirasu.
3. Garnish with grated Daikon radish (grate the top part of Daikon because it is sweeter) and a few drops of soy sauce: this is called "Someoroshi" because the radish is dyed with soy sauce. Then place sliced Shiso leaves to finish.

If you like, as most people in Japan do, you can top with a fresh raw egg yolk, chopped scallions, and more ;)

How to Make Natto Rice Bowl with Soft-Boiled Egg (Ontama Donburi) - Video Recipe

Soft-boiled egg makes the rice dish very mild and easy-to-eat!!!
I just happened to crave for Natto (fermented soybeans) rice bowl, so I made this video. hehe


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmkCzBWgDK0

How to Make Onsen Tamago (Soft-Boiled Eggs):
COMING SOON

The soy sauce I used is "Matsuno Shoyu"!
You can even eat only white rice with this soy sauce ;)
Matsuno Shoyu (in Kyoto) has practiced the traditional handmade method of making Japanese soy sauce for 200 years. Only the best ingredients are chosen because these decide the final aroma and taste of their soy sauce after fermentation in wooden barrels.
http://www.matsunoshouyu.co.jp/



---------------------------------
Natto Rice Bowl with Soft-Boiled Egg

Difficulty: Super Easy
Time: 5min
Number of servings: 1

Ingredients:
a bowl of cooked rice
1 package Natto
1 Onsen Tamago (Soft-Boiled Egg)
Kizaminori (finely shredded Nori sheet)
Ikura (salmon roe) or soy sauce to season

Directions:
1. Mix Natto with the seasonings attached. If you mix the seasonings straight away, it won't develop the stickiness. I prefer to mix lightly for a few times. However, if you prefer gooey Natto, you want to mix Natto very well before adding the seasonings.
2. Pour Natto over the rice. Make a hole in the middle and place a soft-boiled egg.
3. Sprinkle with Ikura or soy sauce to season.
4. Sprinkle with Kizaminori to finish.

Heart-Shaped Umaki Maki-Zushi (Eel Rolled Omelette) - Video Recipe

Cute rice dish idea for Bento box or Parties!
Perfect for Valentine's Day and Ohanami (Sakura viewing) Bento ;)

Sushi
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRnLNCet7iI

I found canned Hamanako Broiled Eels at a supermarket and it also tasted great! You can maybe get it online since it has a long expiry date!

FYI: Umaki is broiled eel wrapped in Japanese rolled omelette (called Tamagoyaki, Dashimakitamago, or Atsuyakitamago). Egg is juicy and eel makes it very tasty. It tastes great even when it is cold.



---------------------------------
Heart-Shaped Umaki Maki-Zushi (Eel Rolled Omelette)

Difficulty: Medium
Time: 30min
Number of servings: 8 pieces

Necessary Equipment:
18x13cm (7x5.1inch) Tamagoyaki Nabe (rectangular omelet pan)

Ingredients:
1 canned Unagi no Kabayaki (broiled eel on skewers is OK)
3 eggs
2 tsp. Yamaki Kappo Shiro Dashi (White Dashi)
cooking oil
300g (10.6oz.) cooked Japanese rice (short-grain rice)
2 tbsp. Sushi vinegar*
2 Nori seaweed sheet

Directions:
1. If necessary, cook the eel as directed on its package. (You don't have to cook the canned one)
2. Mix eggs and Yamaki Kappo Shiro Dashi very well.
3. Heat cooking oil in a Tamagoyaki Nabe (rectangular omelette pan), pour a thin layer of egg mixture in the pan and spread over the surface. Cook until half done, place a strip of eel, roll up the egg, and move it to one end. Pour in another thin layer of egg mixture and let it flow under the rolled egg also. Cook until half done and again roll up the egg. Repeat this until half the mixture is gone.
4. Wrap the rolled egg while warm in plastic wrap to even out the shape. Allow it to cool.
5. Cut the egg diagonally and join the cut sides reversely to make a heart shape. Wrap the egg with 1/2 Nori sheet, then wrap in plastic wrap and wait until the Nori gets soft. *it is to define the outline of the heart-shape.
6. Place cooked Japanese rice in a bowl. Add Sushi vinegar while the rice is hot and slice through rice using a rice paddle to separate the grains. Spread the Sushi rice on another 1/2 Nori sheet using your finger tips, little bit moistened with water.
7. Place an extra Sushi rice for the “v” shape indentation of the heart shape.
8. Place the egg then start rolling.
9. With a moistened knife (bread knife cuts well) cut the roll into 4 pieces (re-wet as needed. don't push but pull to cut).

Eat with soy sauce if you like.

* Ingredients to make Sushi vinegar from scratch.
1.5 tbsp. rice vinegar
1/2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt

How to Make Mock Matsutake Gohan (Pine Mushroom Rice) - Video Recipe

Matsutake Gohan (pine mushroom rice) is a very simple rice dish to enjoy the flavor of Matsutake mushrooms!

I saw on TV that you can create the Matsutake flavor by cooking Eryngii (royal trumpet) mushrooms and unshelled Edamame together since Eryngii mushrooms have the same texture as Matsutake and Edamame pods have the same flavor component as Matsutake. Very scientific logic. haha

It went viral in Japan, so I tried it out. Yes, it becomes a very dainty Matsutake rice dish. Try out and see how you like it ;)

3 cups uncooked Japanese rice (short-grain rice)

Seasonings

2. Clean Konbu with moistened towel. Soak in 600ml water for 30 minutes.
3. Slice Eryngii mushrooms. Rub the Edamame bean pods with 1 tsp. of salt to remove the surface fuzz and wash.
4. Place the rice in a pot, add Kombu Dashi (2) and the seasonings, then mix well. Place the Eryngii mushrooms and Edamame on top of the rice.
5. Place the pot into the rice cooker. Cover and press the button to start.
6. When it's done, remove Edamame (you can eat them as an appetizer), toss the rice lightly using a rice paddle, then serve.

Garnish with chopped Mitsuba (Japanese wild parsley) if you like.
