Bean okayu 1 : Autumn salmon

Okayu, Japanese rice porridge is very simple. Just rice. That’s a way to showcase good Hokkaido salmon, particularly salted salmon. That makes a breakfast, a brunch, and why not a light dinner.

Brown rice slow-cooked with mungo beans, with lots of water. That’s the base. The beans bring some nutty and earthy aftertaste, very pleasant.

Toppings : kujo negi leek , toasted sesame seeds, and…

A slice of salty salmon with its skin. I grilled it.

With green tea.

The flakes of fish would be too salty on their own, but they are the only source of salt here. The balance is perfect.
