Simple taste is the best, but that’s why you need to use good quality soy sauce !!
Good quality seasonings are the basic for Japanese food !

Best scallop dish ever

If you have scallops, how do you cook them?

I personally believe, this is the best way.
Just simply cook them and eat them with soy sauce.

So yummy!! So easy !! So healthy!!
In Japan, quite often seen in BBQ, but you can cook it at home, too.

Put scallops on the pan and cook them with medium heat.

Pour little bit of Sake, then wait until it cooks.

Put soy sauce on cooked scallops.

Another option is, put soy sauce on scallops, and keep cooking them on the pan.
If you like, you can add a little bit of butter. (Butter and soy sauce works well)

I’m sure that you cannot wait to eat them now. Smells so good!!
Not only the smells, it is fantastic taste!

Grilled rice ball ~Soy sauce flavor~

For your healthy snack, why don’t you try one of Japanese soul food.
It’s Yaki-Onigiri, means grilled rice balls.

You can make this when you have leftover rice from last night.
Good, isn’t it?
(Both white rice and brown rice works well)

First, make rice balls.

Prepare soy sauce.
Why we want soy sauce?
Yes !! We want Umami for rice ball ♪♪
CIMG9819

Then put your rice ball on the soy sauce plate.
This is so lazy way…by the way. Proper way must be…using cooking brush.
CIMG9822

Turn it over.
CIMG9825

Make sure all of the surface has soy sauce.
CIMG9831

Ready to grill. Put them into the grill.
Touch them gently otherwise it breaks easily.
CIMG9836

Grill both sides until it becomes golden colour!!
