Veggies for katsuo tataki (seared bonito)

DSC08601-001

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.

Nagasaki champon, Gourmande style

Today’s noodles are… ta ta ta…

Nagasaki champon. That’s the sister version of the sara-udon. This time noodles are soft and in a soup.
The soup is lighter (and based on white chiken or pork bone broth, unlike here) and less abundant than for standard ramens. It is served in a deep plate, not a bowl. And it’s topped by a mountain of items, mostly veggies and seafood.

Sara-udon (was selected in Top 9 by Foodbuzz yesterday. Yeah !)

Fresh stir-fried calamari, bean sprouts, cabbage, onion, hot peppers…watered by a nama shoyu (soy sauce) broth. I don’t like the powder and cube broth, always loaded with preservatives, flavoring, too salty. So if I don’t have home-made in stock, I modify the recipe.

Plus fresh tomato flesh and germinated okra seeds, okra shoots.

The okra shoots are a new product. I like their shape and color. Taste is … nothing special, fresh and crunchy.


On the table a few drops of fragrant sesame oil can be added. Yum…
