  • Fish Takikomigohan

    Wakame & Salmon Takikomigohan

    This is another ‘Takikomigohan’ dish that can be cooked using a canned fish. This time I used a Canned Red Salmon. I wanted to add some Hijiki, but Hijiki is quite hard to find where I live. So, I added Dried Chopped Wakame as they are, without rehydrating it. Wow… I was amazed at how …

    Enoki & Mackerel Takikomigohan

    ‘Mackerel’ is my favourite fish, but it is hard to find fresh Mackerel in Australia. That’s why I always stock Canned Mackerel in the pantry and I use it for this dish. If you are lucky to have fresh Mackerel fillets, season with some salt and grill or pan-fry them first. That would make a …

    My ‘Grilled Salmon & Watercress Mazegohan‘, one of my popular ‘Mazegohan’ dishes, can be made with Shiso leaves instead of Watercress. It is so aromatic and delicious.

    Tuna Udon

    This is a very simple dish, that can be prepared quickly and cheaply. If you can’t find Udon noodles, why don’t you use Spaghetti? Most stir-fried Udon dishes can be made with Spaghetti.

    Sardines & Egg Rice Bowl

    Sardines are more sustainable fish. They are rich in numerous nutrients. Why don’t we eat them more? Canned Sardines are easy to use. They smell fishy?

  • Fish Sea Vegetables

    Kombu & Tuna Wasabi Mayo Salad

    I want to encourage people who are not familiar with sea vegetables to try them. Some types of sea vegetables, that I am trying not to call ‘seaweeds’, have slimy texture and fishy smell. I understand it might be challenging for some people to eat them. I think ‘Kombu’ (kelp) is easier to try. Dried …

    ‘Fitzroy’ is an inner-city suburb of Melbourne. It was 25 years ago, I went to a Spanish restaurant in Fitzroy with my colleagues, high school teachers. I had a fish dish and I loved it so much. I tried to figure out how it was cooked and scribbled a note on a piece of paper. …

    Microwaved Eggplant & Tuna (Sweet Soy)

    Since I discovered the easiest & the quickest way to cook Eggplant, I am using Microwave for cooking more often. This is an almost identical recipe to ‘Microwaved Eggplant & Tuna (Sweet Miso)’ but in a different flavour. And again, what you have to do is microwaving everything together. Nothing can be easier than this! …

    Trevally Tatsuta-agé

    Trevally was on special at a local fish shop today. I bought just 1 fillet that weighed more than 500g! It must have been a giant trevally fish. Trevally’s flavour and texture are similar to the fish called ‘Aji’ in Japan and I quite like this type of fish. ‘Tatusta-agé’ is a very popular method …
