Recently I have been going through some lovely blogs that have very informative, aspiring and inspiring Japanese-related posts ( i.e. Fae’s Twist and Tango , Daily Nibbles and the mother of all the Japanese food blogs Just One Cook Book ) . As a result, during the week I felt like I must go to a Sushi restaurant of some sort but it didn’t happen. The itch stayed though. So this morning I go through my kitchen thinking is there anything I can make to taste Japanese? I have eggs, and salmon. Shall I go with the British classic; salmon and poached eggs? Or is it time to push myself? The result was this post: Tamagoyaki ( Japanese folded egg omelette ) with marinated salmon.
- 3 eggs ( I used 5 large eggs to get the size of the omelette in my pictures, enough for 2 ).
- 1 Tbsp. sugar
- 1 tsp. soy sauce
- 1 tsp. mirin
- 1 pinch of salt
- 4 Tbsp. dashi stock ( I didn’t have any).
I didn’t have a specific recipe for marinated salmon but this is what I did: I sliced the salmon thinly. Marinated in 1 tbs of rice wine vinegar, 1 teaspoon of Mirin. Added Sushi ginger and spring onions for 5 mins. Thanks for looking and come back soon! Nargess
