Pork cutlets, or tonkatsu, have been a popular choice in Japan since they arrived in the late 19th century. Today they’re loved in UK, too, especially when served as katsu curry, with a big plate of Japanese curry and rice. This cheesy version is fried in rice bran oil, a super-healthy alternative to other oils that leaves food crisp, delicious and with no lingering oily taste. The lightness of rice bran oil, which contains a balance of essential fats, helps turn a fried meal into a healthy choice; it can also help to bump up levels of good cholesterol.
The onigiri is Japan’s handiest meal, like our sandwich. And this is toasted version!
This crispy deep-fried cod warm salad has the perfect combination of flavour and texture. Also the refreshing soy sauce dressing adds brightness to the dish.
Ginger pork (pan-fried pork with ginger sauce)” is Japan’s national favourite home cooking dish. This recipe is slightly different from the traditional 'ginger pork' recipe. But I think I prefer this version more. Apple adds a fruity flavour to the ginger sauce and makes the pork tender.
Miso and yoghurt... You might think it's a little bit of a strange combination. But this marinade makes the cod fillets tender and really delicious!
This is a chilled pasta with very rich and creamy wasabi-hinted avocado sauce. If you enjoy a little kick of wasabi, then this appetizer is for you.
This is a really healthy way to cook chicken, using only the fat found naturally inside the chicken thighs. Teriyaki sauce goes wonderfully well with grilled chicken that's lovely and juicy on the inside, with crispy skin on the outside. This recipe adds a new twist, combining the mildness of mayonnaise with the warm spice of freshly ground black pepper. Think of it as a grown-up way to spice up the sweetness of your everyday teriyaki chicken.
