Lots of people find raw fish (sushi) is really hard to swallow, but you can always find something different and delicious.
Ann and I want to try out the most local sushi and Tsukiji Fish Market is the best place to visit. Both of us we cannot eat raw fish which we order Tamago (卵焼き or 玉子焼き), Japanese rolled omelette. Every Japanese mom can cook Tamago. That’s why you can see Japanese students has Tamago in their lunch box often. I’m so want to buy a Japanese Omelette Pan, only because my wife love this dish. She will be so happy if I can cook any time she feels like Tamago.
We only order the food we like, we didn’t try new dishes this time. As you can see in the photo we order a Chawanmushi (茶碗蒸し), steamed egg. Steamed egg is a common Chinese dish, but Japanese make it more tasty and creative.
Kenny’s Chawanmushi (茶碗蒸し) Recipe:
– 3 large eggs, water and chicken stock (1:1:1 ratio)
– sea salt and 1 tsp sesame oil
– pour it through a fine mesh strainer and put 1 crab stick in the blow
– chopped Asian chives on top
– put 1 rice cup water outside the blow and steam 3-5 mins (depend on water and rice cooker)
Ikura ship A.K.A Japanese Red Caviar. If anyone ask me what I like about Japan? Ikura ship is the main reason. Fish caviar has different saltiness tasty inside and outside. Ikura ship combined fish caviar and vinegar rice it has the neutralize taste like heaven. Extra seaweed paper not just help you easy to hold by chopstick, but cut back the greasy feel so you can have as much as you can. I personally can eat 10 plates plus of Ikura ships non-stop.
Japan and Ikura ship I will come to you again!
