Teriyaki buri, iodine and hopes

Teriyaki buri (yellowtail).

And 3 sides full of seaweeds.
Even if I am not affected personally -nothing happened in Osaka, I can’t feel unconcerned by the nightmare Japan is trapped in now. So many victims up there, and this scary nuclear accident.
I feel a bit guilty as many in the country are not eating a hot meal. Either they had to leave their houses for shelters, or they have no gas and electricity. I really hope things get better soon.

After seeing the news, I just wanted to munch a few moffle (mochi waffles). With nori.

I prepared the fish like I do teriyaki chicken (not to be confused with anything cooked in the “teriyaki sauce” popular in the US).

The caramelised fish is so tempting… even when you were not in a mood to eat.

The leaves are crystalline ice plant.

3 sides. 3 seaweed sides full of iodine.
Well, I’m about 700 km away from the plants, surely in the zone where it would help to take iodine tablets. It’s psychological.

Rice with yaki nori (roasted sheets of nori), sunomono (vinegar dish, with wakame and the dry fish that served to make the dashi broth), soup (the dashi broth, wakame, daikon, soy sauce).

  1. I’ve been praying for the victims of the quake in your country…good to know you are safe. Your teriyaki buri looks fabulous…love the shiny glaze!

    I’ve been hearing that the media is making the nuclear problem sound worse than it is…let’s hope so.
    Your meal looks comforting. Those ice plant leaves are gorgeous.
    Stay safe.

  3. Thinking of and praying for you guys in Japan. I have family there, but they are in the Kansai region as well. I used to live in Iwate. It makes me so sad to see all the photographs of the destruction there.
    Your meal looks very comforting and delicious. Odaiji ni.

    • Thanks a lot. We are really lucky in Kansai, but they need all the prayers in the North. Some parts of Iwate really look bad now. I hope you friends there are safe.
