How to Make Monjayaki - Video Recipe

Monjayaki is a local dish of Tokyo. It is a type of Japanese pan-fried batter with various ingredients.

Ingredients are similar to Okonomiyaki (Japanese-style savory pancake) but very watery and less solid.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5ur3irStaA

My darling is from Kansai (関西: the western region of the main Japanese island) so he prefers Okonomiyaki to Monja. LOL

To eat, you use a tiny metal spatula to scrape off the small portion of the cooked mixture. Obviously, it damages the pan, so I prefer to eat it out at the restaurant. haha

500ml water
3 tbsp. flour

50g (1.8oz.) Tenkasu (crunchy bits of deep fried flour-batter)
((you can add other ingredients))
kimchi, seasoned cod roe, cheese, corn, tuna, Mochi, noodle snacks, etc…

Directions:
1. Place the solid ingredients on the pan. Cut and cook the ingredients.
2. Form the ingredients into a donut shape, then pour the batter in the middle of the donut and bring to a boil.
3. Mix everything up and leave it to be cooked. Eat by scraping off and browning a small portion of the mixture.

How to Make Yakitori at home (Yakitori Sauce from Scratch)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lu0_RSJdq_s

I received many requests for Yakitori sauce (Tare) recipe, so I decided to make this tutorial. Also, I will show you how to make salt (Shio) flavored Yakitori, too.




How to cook Yakitori on the grill is here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_jtgDGMEDxk

---------------------------------

Yakitori (Tare and Shio Flavors)


Difficulty: Easy
Time: 30min
Number of servings: 12 sticks

Ingredients:
200g (7oz.) chicken thigh
200g (7oz.) chicken breast
2 white parts of long onion
((Tare - Yakitori sauce))
* 100ml soy sauce
* 100ml Mirin (sweet sake)
* 2 tbsp. sugar
((Shio - salt))
salt and pepper
lemon wedges if you like
Shichimi-togarashi (seven flavor chili pepper) if you like
Yuzukosho (Japanese chili pepper paste) if you like

Directions:
1. To make Tare (Yakitori sauce), place soy sauce, Mirin, and sugar in a pot and bring to a boil. Then turn down to low and simmer for 5 minutes. *You can store the leftover sauce in the fridge for a month and use it for other dishes like Teriyaki.
2. Remove the skin from the chicken if desired. Then cut into small bite-sized pieces. Cut the long onion into 2/3-inch pieces. Season the chicken breast with salt and pepper for Shio (salt) flavor.
3. For Tare (sauce) flavor, put long onion and chicken thigh alternately onto bamboo skewers. For Shio (salt) flavor, put seasoned chicken breast onto bamboo skewers.
4. First, cook the Shio (salt) flavor. Heat a thin layer of cooking oil in a frying pan, place Shio (salt) flavored Yakitori, and cook on high until golden brown on both sides. Then cover and cook on low for 3 minutes until done.
5. Next, cook the Tare (sauce) flavor. Heat a thin layer of cooking oil in a frying pan, place Yakitori with long onions, and cook on high until golden brown on both sides. Then drizzle with 3 tbsp. of Tare (Yakitori sauce), cover, and cook on low for 2 minutes. Then cook on high for 1 minute until the sauce thickens.
6. You can enjoy the Shio (salt) flavored Yakitori with lemon wedges, Shichimi-togarashi (seven flavor chili pepper), or Yuzukosho (Japanese chili pepper paste) if you like.

How to Make Umaki (Japanese Eel Rolled Omelette) - Video Recipe

Umaki is broiled eel wrapped in Japanese rolled omelette (called Tamagoyaki, Dashimakitamago, or Atsuyakitamago). Egg is juicy and eel makes it very tasty. It tastes great even when it is cold, so it is a perfect side dish for bento lunch box!


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QR9DFQ-Xg_0

I usually put Umaki in our Osechi-ryori (New Year's foods).
http://createeathappy.blogspot.jp/2014/01/happy-new-year-2014.html



FYI: Broiled eel on skewers is called "Unagi no Kabayaki".

---------------------------------
Umaki (Japanese Eel Omelette)

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 15min
Number of servings: 2

Ingredients:
1/2 Unagi no Kabayaki (broiled eel on skewers)
eel sauce if attached
4 eggs
A
* 50ml Dashi broth (you can use Dashi powder to make it)
* 1 tsp. soy sauce
* 1 tsp. sugar
* a pinch of salt
cooking oil
Daikon Oroshi (grated Daikon radish)
soy sauce

Directions:
1. Cook the eel as directed on its package. Cut into thin portions. Pour some eel sauce over the eel if available. (I found Hamanako Broiled Eels at a supermarket and it also tasted great! You can maybe get it online since it has a long expiry date!)
2. Beat eggs in a bowl, add A and mix well.
3. Coat a Tamagoyaki Nabe (rectangular omelette pan) with a bit of cooking oil - you can use folded paper towel but Takoyaki oil brush is very convenient to use! Put on medium, and pour a thin layer of egg mixture in the pan. Place the eel strips, cook the egg until half done, then roll the egg. Move the rolled egg to one side, coat the empty space with a bit of oil, pour a thin layer of egg mixture in the space and under the rolled egg. Cook it until half done and roll the egg again. Repeat this until the egg mixture is gone.
4. Wrap the rolled egg while hot in a bamboo sushi roll mat to even out the shape. Allow it to cool and cut it into bite-sized pieces.
5. Garnish with grated Daikon radish (grate the top part of Daikon because it is sweeter) and a few drops of soy sauce: this is called "Someoroshi" because the radish is dyed with soy sauce.

How to Make Saikyo Yaki (Grilled White Miso-Marinated Fish) - Video Recipe

Saikyo Yaki is a very popular traditional Japanese grilled fish marinated in Saikyo Miso (sweet white Miso) made in Kyoto. After marinating the fish fillets (black cod, salmon, sea bass, Japanese spanish mackerel, etc…) overnight, Miso soaks into the fish, tenderizes, and gives absolutely delicious, sweet and rich flavor! Perfect dish to go with white rice :)


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kAt44K_IaZk

Saikyo Miso (white Miso) is usually available at a local Japanese grocery store. You can substitute the Saikyo Miso with regular miso, but it may become saltier.



If you get a chance to go to Kyoto, I recommend trying out 九重味噌 (Kokonoemiso)! Their Saikyo Miso is amazingly good :)

---------------------------------
Saikyo Yaki (Grilled White Miso-Marinated Fish)

Difficulty: Easy
Time: overnight
Number of servings: 4

Ingredients:
4 fish fillets (black cod, salmon, sea bass, Japanese spanish mackerel, etc…)
salt
A
* 300g (10.5oz.) Saikyo white Miso
* 3 tbsp. Sake
* 3 tbsp. Mirin (sweet Sake)

Directions:
1. Sprinkle salt on both sides of the fillets of your choice. Set aside for about 30 minutes. By salting the fish fillets, the fishy smell and excess moisture can be removed, so do not skip this step.
2. Mix A very well.
3. In a shallow container, spread half of the Miso marinade. Place surgical gauze over the marinade. Pat dry the fish with paper towel. Lay the fish fillets so that they don't overlap, then press them lightly to set in place. Fold the other half of the gauze over the fish to enclose them. Spread the remaining marinade over the gauze. Cover with the lid or plastic wrap. Let them marinate in the fridge for overnight to 2 days (2 days max is enough as the fish will get too salty). *By using gauze, you don't have to rinse off the marinade before cooking. Excess marinade on the fish may burn easily.
4. If you didn't use gauze, remove the marinade completely. Cook the fish until golden brown on both sides.

oven: 220C (428F) for about 15 min
toaster oven: 1000w for about 8 min
fish grill: low heat for 5 min on both sides

*you can reuse the marinade 2-3 times. pork, chicken, and/or shiitake mushrooms are also good.

*you can use crumpled aluminum foil instead of using the aluminum foil for frying pan.
