Sashimi lunch


A classic Japanese meal around a dish of sashimi. I prepared the sides.


Steamed kabocha pumpkin and ninniku no me garlic stalks. With soy sauce.

**I simply place the veggies in a steaming basket on top of a boiling water pot, or in the steaming mode of the microwave. Thin kabocha slices take 8 to 10 minutes. Garlic stalks only need 3 o 4 minutes to be at my taste. I add sesame seeds and soy sauce when I serve them.


The sashimi : ika (calamari), buri (yellow tail) and ama ebi (nordic shrimps).


An umeboshi (salted plum).


Tofu with oboro kombu (seaweed), seasoned with the soy sauce left after the sashimi dipping.

**How to choose or make tofu.


The miso soup with hijiki seaweed, shimeji mushrooms and kintoki red carrots.

Add rice. That’s a complete Japanese menu.
