Japanese Cooking 101 – Salmon Teriyaki and Cucumber Wakame Sunomono
Unintentionally, this is the result of 2 cooking lessons together: Salmon Teriyaki and Sunomono. At first I just wanted to try the sunomono and thought about what I could serve it with. Salmon was my first idea, and then I found the cooking lesson for it. I made salmon teriyaki before, but this time I just followed the instructions in the cooking lesson. Salting the fish beforehand is a great idea. The fish never tasted that good before. I bought the most expensive mini cucumbers I could find and hoped they would taste like something else than water, but they didn’t. It was hard to decide which amount of dried wakame to use, and it was way too much in the end. But I still ate all of it 🙂
I decided to make classic ponzu for it, I thought the lemon would be nice. I think I will try other types of sunomono in the future, I imagine I will like other types even better than ponzu. Maybe when the first radishes or cucumbers from my balcony garden are ready I will try it again.
