An Overview

In a traditional Japanese meal, a bowl of rice is always served with Japanese soy sauce and pickled ginger and lemon. The rest of the ingredients are rice vinegar and miso, which is a fermented soup style product. Soy beans can be added at the end of cooking to make it even tastier. Sometimes, rice is not included in a recipe. If this is the case, look for another kind of grain or even a grain substitute that will work well with the rice.

This dish is very simple but can be a hit with kids and adults alike. The basic ingredients are white fish, rice, and maybe onions or ginger. You can modify this recipe to be something different by substituting white fish for bass or replacing the fish with shrimp, squid, or octopus. You can even make a white fish recipe that uses a rice wine and lemon juice as the base for the vinegar so it has a sweet taste.

The first step to this dish is to get out some whitefish. Make sure you cut it into thin slices so you can easily dip it into the rice. Use a spatula to make the slices easy to move around. It will be more authentic if you use a bamboo mat to put them on top of the hot rocks that are sitting on the stove.

Once you have the pieces cut into thin slivers, lay them on the hot stones until they begin to turn translucent. They will be done when they are almost black in color. Once they are almost black, gently flip them over so that you can continue to cook the rice on the inside of the fins next to their body. Do not worry about getting your rice right, just keep cooking it. When it looks done, carefully remove the plank from the dish and set it aside.


Now it’s time to start making your delicious Japanese vegetable dumplings. Start with a half sheet of sesame seeds. Spread them out on a pan and cook them in a small amount of butter or cooking oil. Once they are nearly dry, just place them onto a plate and allow them to cool. If you want to make sure that the bottom is properly cooked, just drizzle a little more cooking oil on it while it is still warm.

Now it’s time to start preparing the vegetables that go into the dumplings. You should have a large mixing bowl in which you can mix all of your ingredients together. Start by mixing the kamaboko, onions, and bell pepper into your bowl. You can use a food processor to make it easier if you would like to but it is not necessary.


When your ingredients are combined, just use your hands to massage them together and then drop them into your hot oil. Mix them up until they are completely smooth. It might take a few minutes to get them to this point, but this is an easy Japanese food recipe that you will enjoy.

The final step will be to make your soup. Although this is usually the simplest part of the process, it is probably the one that most people find to be the most difficult. That is because you will need to combine the kamaboko with the other ingredients such as rice, shoyu (soy), ginger, and the vegetables. Once everything mixes, just place it into your pan and bring it to a gentle boil before adding in your chopped parsley.

Your dish will be complete when you have all of your ingredients combined and it’s ready to serve. Japanese soup makes an excellent meal or snack. It’s easy to prepare and the flavors meld well together. It is healthy too, since you don’t have to eat the actual vegetables in your soup. It is definitely worth trying if you have never cooked it before.
