Since I’m not able to use “alcohol” do I just increase the apple juice for the sake and the Marin or apple juice and honey?

Aurora Henderson says:

@ezjapanesecooking I’ll clean it, if you cook!! 😀

Pimpmastahanhduece says:

I would put a little sesame oil into the initial sake mix before i add the salmon. still, really simple and cheap ass ingredients.

you just changed my world.

William Riley-Land says:

These videos are all great. I like that you focus on simple dishes as well as more fancy ones.

ezjapanesecooking says:

I don’t use timer to know when it’s cooked. Smell and look is the indicator of if it’s cooked well.

ezjapanesecooking says:

Not at all. It was cooked to perfection. You don’t want medium-rare for this.

MAX KAWS says:

Why dont you just eat it raw? Simpler and tastier.

Jason Young says:

I just subscribed, good stuff.

ezjapanesecooking says:

Not all salmon pieces are sashimi fresh. I love salmon sashimi too.

unhearddof says:

@ezjapanesecooking what are some of the tastiest marinades for fish? How much of a difference in taste if you marinade in sake before cooking? Or is it the same? What is the cooking time in correlation to thickness of the fish? In addition to ike jime what else is involved in the process for fish to be sushi grade in Japan?



ezjapanesecooking says:

I love salmon sashimi/sushi too. You either eat fresh salmon completely raw, or for this recipe, it’s much better to cook salmon well rather than partially raw. Japanese favorite salt broiled salmon is completely well done and salmon is almost hard.

chamcham123 says:

Salmon is called “sake” (pronounced “sah-KAY”) in Japanese. So they’re literally adding alcohol (“sake”) to salmon (also called “sake”)!

ezjapanesecooking says:

You can marinate in sake/miso/mirin/sugar mix. Google “black cod miso” made famous by Nobu restaurant.

ezjapanesecooking says:

We use drop lid to efficiently cook it. This is not a beef stew. Fish cooks pretty fast.

Evonne Chin says:

Can I steam instead of boiling over the stove?

Mr. kL says:

where can we find sake in america?

vanillacarnivore says:

I cooked this today. I didn’t have sake or mirin :/ , so I used tequila and agave nectar. I know I twisted the recipe :s but OMG, this came up super delicious. Thank you so much.

Breeding Aquarium Fish says:

Is it just me? Flavour looks amazing, but the cook on the fish looks over-done – too much heat which caused ti to splt, but I bet it tasted amazing. Too bad the texture wasn’t there? Am I wrong here?

retardeddude303 says:

AAAh I need to try this

Brando T says:

Can you please tell us the amount of each ingredient you put in? Thanks in advance.

liisavux says:

ezjapanesecooking says:

lll576 says:

Abigail Cunanan says:
