Miso Cod (Black Cod with Miso) 西京焼き

Miso Cod (Black Cod with Miso) 西京焼き

My children loves fish. Lately our family tradition is going to the Japanese market together on a Saturday afternoon and picking out the sashimi we'll enjoy together for dinner that night. They love everything, and I do mean everything, tuna, yellowtail, sea bream, halibut, scallop, and amberjack. Among the cooked fish recipes, saikyo yaki style is their favorite. The sweet miso flavor combined with buttery flesh, it's almost like miso butter that melts in your mouth.

Making broiled salmon is much easier than most people think, simply pre-heat toaster oven to 400 degrees and bake it for 25-30 min. Our family signature sauce with broiled salmon is yuzu soy sauce. The citrus soy taste blends perfectly with fatty salmon and white rice. With the leftover salmon, I usually make salmon onigiri and enjoy them the next day with my children for lunch.

Shishamo Wrap

Shishamo Wrap

Shishamo is a popular Japanese delicacy but it's definitely not for everyone. Served usually as an appetizer (fried or grilled), this unique fish is filled with roe (komochi shishamo). Honestly, I am not a big fan but my husband and my children love Shishamo. They usually fight over how many each one of them can have. If you are searching for an unique Japanese appetizer to surprise your family or guests, here's a great recipe for deep fried Shishamo.

Shrimp tempura is one of the most popular Japanese dish both in the US as well as Japan. The taste of just fried shrimp dipped in warm tentsuyu is just amazing. Here's the recipe on how you can make shrimp tempura at home, it took me a couple tries to get it just right. Don't worry if the shrimps don't turn out perfect, I am sure your family will love the not so perfect shrimps just like my family did. LOL!
