5 MIN Spinach Ohitashi (Japanese Spinach Salad Side Dish Recipe) | Japanese Cooking Video Recipe

Spinach Ohitashi (Japanese Spinach Salad) is a very typical Japanese side dish, perfect for any meal (breakfast, lunch, or dinner) and Bento lunch box. Tasty yet addictive 😋




Cooked spinach seasoned with soy sauce is NOT Ohitashi. Soaking into Dashi Soy Sauce is Ohitashi 👍

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

Spinach Ohitashi (Japanese Spinach Salad Side Dish Recipe)


Difficulty: VERY EASY
Time: 5min
Number of servings: 4

Ingredients:
200g (7oz.) Spinach
salt
* 2 tbsp. Dashi broth
* 1&1/2 tbsp. Soy Sauce
* 1 tsp. Mirin (Sweet Sake) *1/3 tsp. sugar is OK
Katsuobushi (bonito flakes)

Directions:
1. Cut off the root of the stem and make a cross cut (if the stem is dirty), then wash. In this way you can wash away soil easily but if your spinach is clean then you can simply wash.
2. Boil water in a large pot. Add a pinch of salt in the water (salt removes oxalic acid - bitter taste, and makes the spinach nice and green).
2. Add spinach in the boiling water from the stem side.
3. Boil spinach for about 15~30 seconds. Drain and wash with running water to cool. Squeeze the spinach to remove excess water (use paper towel if you have).
4. Cut into 1.5 inch (4cm) long pieces.
5. Mix Dashi broth, Soy Sauce, and Mirin, then soak spinach for a while.
6. Serve on a dish, garnish with Katsuobushi (bonito flakes) to finish.

Stir-Fried Dried Squid and Vegetables (NO Knife! Kitchen Shears) - Video Recipe

We received some dried squids when we visited the nearby shrine for our son's Omiyamairi (the first shrine visit) and my darling's Yakubarai (ceremony to drive away evil spirits). I decided to make a dish out of them.

It turned out to a very tasty and delicious stir-fried dish, goes great with white rice. Oyster-sauce flavor, with a hint of chive is obviously addictive. Very filling with lots of bean sprouts ;)

You don't need a knife but use kitchen scissors / kitchen shears!

Of course, you can use regular squids.

FYI: Hatsumiya-Mairi (初宮参り) or Omiyamairi (お宮参り) is one of the traditional celebration events for Japanese babies. Whenever a newborn is over a month old, we bring the baby to a nearby shrine for a greeting (giving the invocation).
