Japanese Food / Japanese Fusion Food / Fish & Seafood / Salad Bonito Tataki-style Salad September 10, 2020 / by Junko （日本語の文章は英文の下にあります） Today, we will be using bonito that becomes fatty and delicious during this time of year. In Japan, we have a dish called “tataki” where the outer part of the bonito is seared and we eat it with soy sauce and condiments but in this episode, we will fancy it up a bit and make a salad that can also be served at parties! 1 pack bonito (tataki style for sashimi) 1 grapefruit 1/8 red onion 1 bundle watercress 2 tbsp vinegar (adjust with grapefruit juice) 1 tbsp olive oil 1 tbsp caper salt & pepper 1/2 tbsp olive oil (for watercress) salt (for watercress) ——————– グレープフルーツと戻り鰹のサラダ仕立て 今日は脂が乗って美味しくなってきたカツオを使ったメニューです。 いつものたたきをちょっとおしゃれにサラダ仕立てにして、パーティーでも活躍する一皿にします！ 鰹には旬が2回あります。 南から北に北上する春と、逆に南下していくときの秋。春は初鰹・上り鰹、秋は戻り鰹といわれて、秋の方が栄養と脂肪を蓄えてもっちりとした食感が特徴です！ ※日本語のレシピはYoutubeの概要欄でご確認ください。 Junko There are so many Japanese dishes and cultures that are not well known outside of Japan and I’m happy to introduce them to you!
