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.
The miso soup with hijiki seaweed, shimeji mushrooms and kintoki red carrots.
Add rice. That’s a complete Japanese menu.
