A fish and whole wheat pizza this time.

Ququii

The dough is cooked in a skillet. Then I’ve added tomato paste + olive oil + garlic + salt. I garnished with green peppers, sweet corn, onion, capers, anchovy and :

Veggies for katsuo tataki (seared bonito)

Katsuo tataki. Bonito “tataki”.

I could just say I’m proud of my nice dish. But that’s cheating as I bought the tataki (seared fish) already cooked and I only had to cut and mix with its ponzu sauce. But I prepared the vegetables.
Under there is a layer of onion slices. I cut them, salted and rinsed after 10 minutes.

Sprouts of okra (gombos). I simply washed them.

Yuzu ponzu sauce for takaki bonito salad


Ponzu is one of the typical Japanese sauces. It’s ideal to season this fish salad.

It’s very simple : shoyu (soy sauce) and citrus juice.

That’s it, I can keep that a while in the fridge.

Today’s citrus is fragrant green yuzu.

A green bed made of lettuce, onion, konnyaku (seaweed flavored) and avocado.

I’ve bought the fish. It’s katsuo no tataki, it’s seared and refreshed bonito. The best of the 2 world, tangy like grilled, freshly raw like sashimi.

Every year, we eat them in a different direction. And I have a branch of holy on my table… I don’t know why. There is tradition surely, but I have no idea. I have research.

This year : shiitake mushrooms, shrimps, nanohana (rape greens), shiso leaves, kombu seaweed, spicy tarako fish eggs.

I made a leek tamago-yaki rolled omelet and bought bonito “tataki” (broiled around, raw inside).

Making the maki-zushi. Rice cooked with kombu seaweed. Black sesame sushi rice. Many items in the roll…

Eat one without cutting it, while facing the good direction.

This year it’s North North East.
Eaten ! Let’s have a year of happiness… More about Setsubun in next posts :
