I was a bit surprise when hubby picked Yakitori from one of our asian cookbook when I hand them over to him. As I know, he´s not into soya sauce. But alas, it seems that he is okay with japanese soya sauce but not the rest. Ah well. I don´t blame him. Japanese cuisine flavour are lighter as compared to the other asian cuisine so I reckon, it takes a while to get use too. Its good that I enjoy japanese food too and that I am not one of those who cannot do without flavour from my homeland.
Today, I had a fantastic lunch of Scholle, or Plaice as its called in Ireland or Dover Sole when in England. I had them simple grilled with some salt, pepper and a dash of lemon juice. Scholle is a very fine textured fish with mild, buttery sweet flavour. One have to be very careful when flipping them over when pan frying them so I can´t think of other way of cooking this delicate fish so that it stays intact apart from pan fying. To those whom have not tried them before, do give this a try when you come across .. it surely is a fine fish.
I wanna show you what MIL gave me last week! She seems to be in the mood of giving again and had given me a pot of Star-of-Bethlehem (Chincherinchee)
Lucky me! :-D
