We are now having a nice Summer weather, as during official Summer, we were inside a sauna. So it’s ideal to lunch with rei men (chilled noodles) and enjoy hot weather fruits.
You don’t see the noodles ? It’s because they are hidden under.
They are kishimen, a type of flat udon particularly popular in Aichi, the region of Nagoya. (read more)
Served cold, they remind some white Chinese noddles they serve in Pekin’s streets.
Salmon slices ready for sashimi (it has to be frozen, don’t forget if the fishmonger didn’t do it).
My grandma’s technique to cut parsley thinly (yep, with scissors).
4 layers :
-a bed of grated cucumbers and minced parsley, slightly salted and later pressed to get out excess water
-kishimen noodles, boiled, refreshed in iced water
-onion slices (salted, let, rinsed) and kikuna chrysanthemum greens
-salmon kabosu ceviche
Mix and you have a very fresh salad meal.
Dragon fruit and litchis for dessert. Natto-wasabi as a side :
