Japanese Recipes


Japan has long been known for its foods. There are many different Japanese recipes and dishes, which not only can taste great, but often beautifully presented.

Some popular Japanese dishes include:
  • Sashimi - Very fresh raw seafood cut into thing slices. Many Westerners wrongly call this dish "sushi"

  • Sushi - Vinegared rice topped with fish, meat, roe, cooked egg, or vegetables. Many Westerners confuse "sushi" with &sashimi" - in fact, sashimi is simply one possible topping for sushi.

    Sushi

  • Agedashi dofu - A hot broth containing tofu cubes.

  • Champon - Chicken broth with medium yellow noodles.

  • Ramen - Thin noodles in pork or chicken broth.

  • Udon - Noodle soup. It is often topped with fried tofu or tempura (fried battered shrimp or vegetables)

  • Miso - A Japanese recipe for soup, made primarily from miso paste (fermented rice, barley or soy), and often containing tofu, green onions, seaweed, or even shrimp. Miso soup is served with many meals in Japan, including breakfast!

    Miso soup

  • Yaki soba - Fried Chinese noodles.

  • Yaki udon - Fried udon noodles.

  • Zaru soba - Soba (buckwheat) noodles served cold.

  • Shabu-shabu - A hot pot dish made by cooking beef, tofu and vegetables in stock. The dish is prepared at the dinner table, and to eat, pieces of food are removed and then deep in sauce before being consumed.

  • Sukiyaki - Like shabu-shabu, this dish is prepared in a hot pot at the table. The ingredients in the dish include very thinly sliced beef and vegetables. Instead of sauce, portions of food are dipped by dinners into raw egg before being eaten.

  • Kakuni - Pork belly cut into cubes and stewed in a sauce.

  • Nikujaga - Beef and potato stew.

  • Chawan mushi - An egg custard containing chicken, meat or seafood, with vegetables.

  • Teriyaki - Chicken, meat, seafood, or vegetables glazed with sweetened soy sauce, then grilled, or pan-fried.

  • Yakitori - Chicken on a skewer cooked on a barbecue grill.

  • Kushikatsu - Meat, seafood or vegetables bread and deep-fried on a skewer.

  • Tempura - Battered shrimp (Tempura Shrimp), seafood or vegetables. A special light batter is used when preparing the dish. tempura can be eaten over donburi (steamed rice), with soba (buckwheat) noodles, on top of udon (noodle soup), or on its own with a dipping sauce.

  • Korokke - Breaded croquettes containing mashed potato or white wine sauce. Inside eaten croqueete is ground meat, seafood or vegetables.

    Korokke

  • Takoyaki - A battered dumpling containing octopus meat (or a whole baby octopus).

  • Tonkatsu - Deep-fried pork cutlet.

  • Donburi - Steamed rice with a savory topping. There are many different varieties:
    • Chickendon - Steamed rice topped with a deep-fried breaded chicken cutlet.
    • Gyudon - Steamed rice topped with seasoned beef.
    • Oyakodon - Steamed rice topped chicken and egg or occassionally salmon and salmon roe. These two very different dishes share the same name, because the dish's name literally means "parent and child".
    • Tonkatsudon - Steamed rice topped with a deep-fried breaded pork cutlet.
    • Tekkadon - Steamed rice topped with sashimi (thin slices of raw seafood).
    • Tendon - Steamed rice topped with tempura (battered shrimp, seafood, and/or vegetables).

Product Description:
A collection of more than 100 recipes that introduces Japanese comfort food to American home cooks, exploring new ingredients, techniques, and the surprising origins of popular dishes like gyoza and tempura. 

Move over, sushi. It’s time for gyoza, curry, tonkatsu, and furai. These icons of Japanese comfort food cooking are the hearty, flavor-packed, craveable dishes you’ll find in every kitchen and street corner hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Japan.

In Japanese Soul Cooking, Tadashi Ono and Harris Salat introduce you to this irresistible, homey style of cooking. As you explore the range of exciting, satisfying fare, you may recognize some familiar favorites, including ramen, soba, udon, and tempura. Other, lesser known Japanese classics, such as wafu pasta (spaghetti with bold, fragrant toppings like miso meat sauce), tatsuta-age (fried chicken marinated in garlic, ginger, and other Japanese seasonings), and savory omelets with crabmeat and shiitake mushrooms will instantly become standards in your kitchen as well. With foolproof instructions and step-by-step photographs, you’ll soon be knocking out chahan fried rice, mentaiko spaghetti, saikoro steak, and more for friends and family.

Ono and Salat’s fascinating exploration of the surprising origins and global influences behind popular dishes is accompanied by rich location photography that captures the energy and essence of this food in everyday life, bringing beloved Japanese comfort food to Western home cooks for the first time.

Product Description:
When it was first published, Japanese Cooking: A Simple Art changed the way the culinary world viewed Japanese cooking, moving it from obscure ethnic food to haute cuisine.


Twenty-five years later, much has changed. Japanese food is a favorite of diners around the world. Not only is sushi as much a part of the Western culinary scene as burgers, bagels and burritos, but some Japanese chefs have become household names. Japanese flavors, ingredients and textures have been fused into dishes from a wide variety of other cuisines. What hasn’t changed over the years, however, are the foundations of Japanese cooking. When he originally wrote Japanese Cooking: A Simple Art, Shizuo Tsuji, a scholar who trained under famous European chefs, was so careful and precise in his descriptions of the cuisine and its vital philosophies, and so thoughtful in his choice of dishes and recipes, that his words—and the dishes they help produce—are as fresh today as when they were first written.


The 25th Anniversary edition celebrates Tsuji’s classic work. Building on M. F. K. Fisher’s eloquent introduction, the volume now includes a thought-provoking new Foreword by Gourmet Editor-in-Chief Ruth Reichl and a new Preface by the author’s son and Tsuji Culinary Institute Director, Yoshiki Tsuji. Beautifully illustrated with eight pages of new color photos and over 500 drawings, and containing 230 traditional recipes as well as detailed explanations of ingredients, kitchen utensils, techniques and cultural aspects of Japanese cuisine, this edition continues the Tsuji legacy of bringing the Japanese kitchen within the reach of Western cooks.

Product Description:

The revered Iron Chef shows how to make flavorful, exciting traditional Japanese meals at home in this beautiful cookbook that is sure to become a classic, featuring a carefully curated selection of fantastic recipes and more than 150 color photos.

Japanese cuisine has an intimidating reputation that has convinced most home cooks that its beloved preparations are best left to the experts. But legendary chef Masaharu Morimoto, owner of the wildly popular Morimoto restaurants, is here to change that. In Mastering the Art of Japanese Home Cooking, he introduces readers to the healthy, flavorful, surprisingly simple dishes favored by Japanese home cooks.

Chef Morimoto reveals the magic of authentic Japanese food—the way that building a pantry of half a dozen easily accessible ingredients allows home cooks access to hundreds of delicious recipes, empowering them to adapt and create their own inventions. From revelatory renditions of classics like miso soup, nabeyaki udon, and chicken teriyaki to little known but unbelievably delicious dishes like fish simmered with sake and soy sauce, Mastering the Art of Japanese Home Cooking brings home cooks closer to the authentic experience of Japanese cuisine than ever before.

And, of course, the famously irreverent chef also offers playful riffs on classics, reimagining tuna-and-rice bowls in the style of Hawaiian poke, substituting dashi-marinated kale for spinach in oshitashi, and upgrading the classic rice seasoning furikake with toasted shrimp shells and potato chips. Whatever the recipe, Chef Morimoto reveals the little details—the right ratios of ingredients in sauces, the proper order for adding seasonings—that make all the difference in creating truly memorable meals that merge simplicity with exquisite flavor and visual impact.
