Satoimo & baby squid Nimono


Satoimo & baby squid Nimono


Have I already described about nimono?

It is traditional cooking way for Japanese. "Ni" means boil up in English this time.

So what is the seasoning for boil up ingredients with?

Well, I am not sure you can get it in your country, you may need to buy dashi, soy sauce, Mirin, and Japanese sake(rice wine).

Just mix 3 cup of dashi, 4 tablespoon of soy sauce, 2 tablespoon of Mirin and Sake. If you like sweet, add more sake or mirin.

Now, you can begin boil up ingredients.

Most of begetables and fish can be cooked into Nimono, such as the combination of potato, carrot, burdock and chicken.

The above photo is Nimono of baby squid(less than 5cm) and Satoimo.

Satoimo is not delicious if not cook with seasoning, but it becomes great when boiled up with seafood :p
