    Shungiku (Edible Chrysanthemum) Caesar Salad

    If you can’t find Shungiku (Edible Chrysanthemum), try mix of Spinach & Rocket, or other salad vegetables that have strong flavour. I think they taste much better than lettuces. You can use your own Caesar Dressing, but why don’t you try ‘My Creamy Caesar Dressing’ which suits the flavour of Shungiku so well. Makes 4 …

    Soba Salad with Sesame Flavoured Sauce

    Japanese people, when they are travelling overseas, often crave ‘Zaru Soba’, Soba noodles with dipping sauce, with some reasons. How about Japanese people living overseas? Of course we do!!!

    Mixed Beans Wasabi Mayo Salad

    ‘Canned Mixed Beans (Four Beans), Edamame and Carrot’ is my favourite combination for a quick bean salad. Sometimes I add other salad vegetables such as Cucumber and Lettuce. Dress the salad with various dressings, but this is my absolute favourite. It’s ‘Japanese Mayonnaise, Soy Sauce and Wasabi’. If you don’t like Wasabi, try Garlic Chilli …

    Mixed Beans Mustard Salad

    I often make salad using canned Mixed Beans and Edamame beans. And for the bean salad, the essential ingredient is crunchy fresh Carrot. You can add other crunchy fresh vegetables such as Radish and Cucumber, but Carrot’s crunchiness is absolutely the best match to the Edamame beans which have quite crunchy texture. Makes 4 Servings …

    Marinated Salmon Sashimi

    ‘Sashimi’, sliced raw Fish, are still hard to find where I live, but I have a good access to Salmon that is fresh enough to eat raw. You don’t like raw salmon? How about to cure the raw salmon in lemon juice based marinade? This refreshing dish is perfect for lunch or dinner on a …

    Green ‘Cha-Soba’ Noodle Salad

    These green-coloured noodles are called ‘Cha-Soba’. They are green because ground green tea leaves are mixed with buckwheat and wheat flour. But you can hardly taste the green tea. This extremely healthy-looking salad should be all green, and that means you can add anything green. The dressing is not quite green but green Wasabi paste …

  • 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 …
