Cooking in hot weather not necessary be sweaty. A vegetable stew cooked in a crock pot with dashi stock and let it simmer till tender. Soaked and rinsed cuttlefish, cut into medium pieces and add into the radish till softened. Add in seasoning.
The flavor of the radish is overwhelming when you bite into it.
Beat egg-white till firm and spread over to cover cold bean curd. Steam till egg-white is set. Sprinkle with benito flakes and sesame seeds. Refrigerate till serving time. (P.S. Actually I could not remember whether I steam the dish or not as I make this dish out of random).
The weather is so hot that I do not want to cook. But it is worth the effort and sweat when all family members are present to enjoy the food and camaraderie. With everyone busy with work and occupy with other activities nowadays it is rare that all are hardly able to enjoy a meal together.
Simple and quality meal. A soup, main dish, vegetables and a salad. Boiled soup and marinate fish in the morning. When ready to eat, grill fish in oven and prepare salad. Last of all fry the vegetables.
Lemon juice with seasame oil, soya sauce and sugar mix together and pour over fish before serving. Fry onions till caramelized and add in fresh mushroom till cook. Spoon over fish.
Prepare fresh prawns and add in avocado pieces, fresh onions and tomatoes. Toss salad in olive oil, lime juice, salt, mirin sauce and a spoonful of mustard. Mix well and refrigerate till serve.
