This shellfish looks beautiful and make beautiful dishes.
Hotate (scallops) from Hokkaido. I’ve associated them with ume, the sour green plums of rainy season
Well, they were very full. I discard the black part, clean well and keep the strings and bits for a soup.
I just cut the “nut” , painted with olive oil and grilled.
ume pesto :
Paste a raw
ume plum, fresh oregano, roast sesame seed, a little salt. Add olive oil and cane sugar.
Then enjoy a sip of broth. Mmmmm…

The big lunch. A veggie orgy.
You have seen already 3 dishes, here is the final installment.
I cooked this with all the veggies leftovers I had. Spring cabbage and
maitake mushrooms that you see here. Also onion, kintoki red carrot and I’ve added potatoes. At the end, more greens of shungiku.
The veggies are cooked without oil, steamed in the pan. Just salt. They bring enough complementary flavors.
The dish :
jardinière de légumes (vegetable garden lady). That looks dry, but it’s very mushy, soft and juicy.
Garlic and yuzu sautéed tsubomina. That you are detailed here.
The main dish maybe is the
tofu on wasabi leaves, from this post.
The last slice of this delicious black sesame
azuki bean terrine that I had frozen, a while ago ( here). I had 2 huge bean terrines that fed me for a while. Now I need to bake the next ones.
Green, fresh… and something that makes little sparkles on the tongue.
These are regular wasabi leaves (
wasabi no ha).They are like the smaller version than those used to to make wasabi tsukemono ( see here).
They are different from wasabi greens ( wasabina), not that I could explain the botanical nuances.
They don’t have much taste actually and it’s disappointing. Well, that doesn’t matter as I find them pretty and you never have too much salad. And I boosted up the taste with
I’ve stir-fried onion, then the minced stalks, then flavored with
shoyu soy sauce and a little yuzu juice. I’ve added the cut leaves and let cool.
Served with good fresh silky tofu, and a little grated

Ultra-fresh Spring eggs are a delicacy. They are perfect to make poached eggs. This is a light first dish, ideal to start a big Easter feast.
They are placed on a simple soup of romaine salad. Seasoned with spices.
accras and you’re starting a French Antilles style party. These appetizers bring the mood. They are fried dumplings with herbs, spices and often morue (cod fish).
With a dip of salsa ? I’d usually spice them enough and I eat them like that, but I often see many Japanese people looking for the sauce whenever that type of dish appears…
Delicious to photography…
