I’ve been enjoying the Spicy Fish from Asia Café for years now, and it surprises me that the taste is still as I remember the first time I ate it. The to-go container has changed a couple of times (and the portion my be slightly smaller) but the flavor is still yummy, oily, and hot. It’s great! I’m not sure what kind of fish fillet they actually use, but someone once said it was catfish. But another person said tilapia. I guess I could just ask the restaurant next time, but I like the mystery of not knowing. 😆
Dinner tonight was Hamburg Steak. It’s a popular dish in Japan, and Mariko made a sweet teriyaki-style sauce for it which made it even more delicious. A small salad, miso soup (made with homemade miso), and fluffy rice make it a perfect meal. 😌
This evening we made yakitori on the grill. Was yummy! Mariko said the meat was a little overcooked because we kept it on too long to get a nice char, so next time we’ll up the flame a bit so the grill marks arrive earlier.
Besides the chicken, we added onion, and since we didn’t have any green onion in the fridge, we added jalapeño peppers for a bit of color. I guess these were Texas-style yakitori skewers. 😆
Oh, and another thing… we didn’t soak the skewers in water beforehand, so they burned pretty badly. Oh well, next time!
