Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Hokkaido salmon chanchan

    • Rinshin on May 17, 2022

      Very satisfying. Added my own take on this popular salmon dish in Hokkaido by adding both mirin and sansho powder to the sauce, and instead of cooking all in the frying pan, quickly stir fried the vegetables for few minutes and finally baked at 375F for 20 min with salmon pieces on top of vegetables followed by sauce and baked closed foil style. The salmon pieces were perfectly steamed with miso fragrance and taste. Used cabbage instead of Napa cabbage, julienned carrots instead of thin round slices and added sweet pepper rings. Liked his addition of garlic to vegetables. Any mushrooms work well here. Easy complete one dish dinner. Photo added.

  • Chicken paprikash

    • Rinshin on September 04, 2022

      Simple, quick, and very satisfying weeknight meal sure to please even kids. Used skinless and boneless chicken thighs. I added a small amount of mushroom powder while doing tasting. Next time I like to add sliced mushrooms and splash of sherry. Served with Amish style egg noodles and lightly candied carrots. My husband loved this combo. Photo added.
