    Salmon & Wakame Mazegohan

    My super-easy ‘Salmon Takikomigohan’ is becoming popular. One of my friends has been cooking it repeatedly. However, ‘Salmon Mazegohan’ is a lot tastier and I like it more even though I have to cook Salmon separately. ‘Grilled Salmon & Watercress Mazegohan’, which I introduced on the other day, sounds time-consuming because of the word ‘Grilled’. …

    This is one of my family’s favourite winter dishes. There are many different ‘Fish Pie’ recipes but this is what I cook. My daughter complains that the dish tastes ‘blunt’ and I should add some herbs or lemon zest to it. I know some recipes use lemon juice, but I like my Fish Pie’s ‘blunt’ …

    Watercress Salmon Salad with Wasabi Dressing

    I love the peppery taste of Watercress. Whenever I find fresh watercress in a shop, it’s hard to resist buying a bunch. This salad is not for children. The Watercress is peppery, and Radish and Red Onion are also peppery, and even Wasabi is added to the dressing. Fresh Wasabi is preferable, but it’s impossible …
