Seafood, Rice, and Everything Nice

"Japanese food favorites"
By: Nicole BautistaSeafood, Rice, and Everything Nice

Sushi, sashimi, tempura, ramen. What do these words have in common? They all denote a delicious Japanese dish! Japanese cuisine is popular not only in Japan but all over the world—proof of this is that none of these words are unfamiliar, even to those who speak zero Japanese. Here are some favorite Japanese eats that are popular in our country. What do you think makes these dishes healthy?

●  Miso soup. A soup made of dashi (seaweed stock), miso paste, wakame (thick seaweed), spring onions, and tofu. 

●  Ramen. Noodle soup that can vary in the noodles (soba or udon, that is, buckwheat or wheat noodles), in the broth (shoyu, tonkotsu, miso), the meat toppings, and the vegetables.

●  Sushi. Basically, sushi is a ball of rice mixed with vinegar and topped with a slice of raw seafood like salmon, tuna, mackerel, or squid. It can also be topped with crabsticks or egg, and wrapped with nori seaweed. It is enjoyed with wasabi and soy sauce.

●  Sashimi. This is sliced raw fish, enjoyed with wasabi and soy sauce.

●  Sukiyaki. A dish prepared at the table with broth, glass noodles, thinly sliced beef, tofu, vegetables, and egg.

●  Tempura. Deep fried battered prawns, fish, and various vegetables served with a sauce made of dashi, mirin (a sweet rice wine with less alcohol than sake), and grated daikon (radish).

●  Yakitori. Barbecue, Japanese style! Chicken, liver, or vegetables are skewered on a small bamboo stick and grilled over hot coals.
