Ponzu sauce is very versatile, it's probably best known as the dipping sauce for Japanese shabu shabu. It's also popular with thinly sliced halibut or sea bream sashimi. I enjoy experimenting with ponzu sauce and found it goes really well with pan fried eggplants. Garnish with shiso to add more complexity to this delicious vegetarian recipe.
My kids love strawberries. Whenever we go to Costco during strawberry season we would always come home with 4 lbs of strawberry because they request it. I am always trying to think of ways for my kids to eat more salad so when I saw the strawberry recipe I knew I had to try.
I know I probably say "this recipe is my husband and my favorite recipe" quite a bit, but this spring roll is really one of our favorites. It very quick to prepare since only pork belly has to be cooked. The soft rice paper wrapped around fresh veggie and crunchy pork belly dipped in a citrus soy sauce... it's just perfect.
Memorial day is just around the corner and I want to share a refreshing summer salad to go with weekend barbecues. I love the unique taste of blood orange and this salad uses both the blood orange fruit as well as the juice for the vinaigrette. Never used blood orange in a recipe before? Now's your chance.
It amazing how fast 2011 has passing by so far, just with a blink of an eye and summer is just around the corner. Since the weather has been amazing, I want to share a delicious salmon salad with you. It's perfect for that weekend lunch in the backyard and to enjoy with a bottle of white wine and some warm bread and butter.
I got the recipe for my favorite flavored soy sauce, Shiso Garlic Soy Sauce from Cookpad.com. This original recipe created a huge sensation in Japan a couple years ago. This recipe has only 3 ingredients, but the combination of Shiso, garlic, and soy sauce is pretty amazing. I love this sauce so much that I always keep replenishing the ingredients so it's always ready to go when I need it.
Today's recipe is actually 2 dishes, you make salad and you get a free soup! If you enjoy eating Shabu Shabu or like Ponzu, I'm sure you'll like this salad. Typically shabu shabu restaurants in the US only serve beef slices, but in Japan pork slices are also very popular. Ponzu goes really well with pork slices and it also makes the perfect healthy dressing since very little oil is used.
Ever wonder what the mixture of mayo and ponzu tastes like, well I can tell you it tastes wonderful. Maybe the combination sounds strange to you, but it's likely you will be addicted to this refreshing taste! Enjoy this crab salad with either an Asian or Western meal. This dish can be prepared 20 min and it's always very popular when I serve at parties.
Chicken Nanban (鶏肉の南蛮漬け), deep fried chicken, eggplant, and bell pepper tossed in a refreshing soy vinegar dressing.
Here's a salad that goes well with Japanese food or other Asian food. This dressing is my husband's favorite among the different kinds of dressing I make at home. If you like Ponzu (citrus-based soy sauce), you will probably enjoy this refreshing salad!
