Karl’s Hamachi-cado

I made a Japanese feast on Sunday and one of my dishes was hamachi shotsChef Jeffrey Stout’s signature recipe at The Sea by Alexander. Whenever, I make these taste treats I have a small piece of fish left over—in this case it was the dark fatty bits near the fishes center line. I usually eat this for lunch the next day.

Hamachi Shots

Two weeks ago, I tried making hamachi shotsChef Jeffrey Stout’s signature recipe at The Sea by Alexander—for the first time. I was rushed and forgot to add all of the ingredients. I also took a short cut that did not work well. This time, I am trying to faithfully follow the recipe—not something that is really in my nature.

Karl’s Hamachi Shots

Adapted from a Chef Jeffrey Stout recipe

The kids are feeling a bit toady after weeks of holiday eating and have decided to go on a keto/Atkins low-carb diet. These diets are vegetable/protein forward. Usually, I go with dishes where I can serve the starch on the side, for those who wish for more.

Karl’s Sashimi

This is not so much a recipe as a presentation—one does not actually cook sashimi. I make a Japanese dinner once or twice a month—sashimi, inarizushi, fresh tofu, miso soup, wakame salad, and fresh pickles. This week I had bought two different pieces of Maguro (tuna), some akimi and chutoro.

Note: Some might bring up tataki at this point, but while mostly raw, I would argue that it is cooked and therefore not sashimi.

It did not seem right just to slice the pieces of tuna up and throw them on a plate. That would be very much against the aesthetics of Japanese cuisine—eating should feed both the body and the soul. Looking at the contrasting colors, I decided on my  arrangement.
