The moon is announcing rain ?
Let’s grill moon colored fish… Soramame (sky bean) is the Japanese name of broad beans (favas).
In the rice cooker : soaked rice, a 1 tbs of mirin and the skins of the beans. So the rice is nicely flavored. Then I take away the skins and replaces with the green inside, add a pinch of salt, and let a few minutes in the steam.
My rice looks… dirty ? Well, it’s not white, it’s polished germinated rice, a healthier version of white rice.
The flavor + the color !
Shio-yaki is so simple : salt and grill. It’s saba (mackerel) and its precious healthy omega.
Of course, 2 items for a Japanese dinner, that would be too sad.
The rest of the menu is in next post.
It’s a creamy fish papillote, but a fragrance of vanilla fills the air of its sweetness.
Sweet too, the fresh green peas.
Let’s make a papillote :
Cod fish, with sweet paprika powder. Veggies are onion, celery, sweet corn, bell peppers. I “tamed” the onion by cutting it in advance and salting. After 30 minutes I rinsed. The onion is then very sweet. The sauce is a tbs of cream, salt, pepper, more paprika and vanilla essence. That’s what changes everything. Vanilla flavor brings you under the palm tree, on some island full of huge flowers…
