The weather is still funky. One day very very cold and windy! Icy would be a good word to use.
The next day, rainy and warm. I'm sure all the plants are just as confused as I am (I don't know what to wear??!!)
On the lanai, tulips getting bigger, probably going to bloom on the next sunny day.
Something is coming out in this pot...I am hoping it is goya (bittermelon).
And just so you don't think that this blog has turned to a plant blog, I want to show you a simple dinner we had last week.
Buri (yellowtail) and some steamed broccoli and asparagus with a sesame seed dressing.
I had received this fish from MIL awhile back and put it in the freezer.
Then last week, I decided to try the teriyaki sauce which Obachan posted about.
The proportions she suggested are a 1:1, so I made a sauce with...
1 tablespoon shoyu
1 tablespoon sake
1 tablespoon mirin and added a little sugar (1/2 teaspoon sugar) because I like my sauce sweet but know that Satoshi likes his not too sweet.
I cooked the fish in a little olive oil on a non-stick pan and when the fish was nearly cooked, I added the sauce to caramelize onto the fish, though I think I could have waited a bit longer for the caramelization.
The sesame seed dressing was a throw together....
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons shoyu
2 teaspoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 teaspoons sesame paste
1 teaspoon sesame seed
1 teaspoon water
Have a good week!
