Miso cabbage and mackerel

Ah, back to Montreal grocery stores. Sad. Fortunately, Yusuke is good at making the most of a lack of quality ingredients.

Pictured above is a simple side dish of boiled cabbage. The tasty sauce was made from:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tbsp miso paste
  • 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • 1/2 tbsp katakuriko (Japanese potato starch) mixed with 1 tbsp water

All ingredients were combined a saucepan and heated until thoroughly mixed. The sauce was drizzled over the cabbage and sprinkled with sesame seeds.

As Yusuke likes to end his recipe recital: “and that’s all.”

He also noted that the original recipe called for ground pork or beef, but he left it out, just for me. Aw.

We also had grilled mackerel with this meal, eaten with a bit of soy sauce.
