Dashi

Dashi is Japanese soup stock. I normally use Konbu, Kelp and kezuri bushi, bonito flake. Some people use iwashi, anchovy or saba, mackerel instead of using bonito.

 

Dashi is everything of Japanese cooking.

 

What else do we need? Sake, Mirin, soy sauce, rice vinegar and sake maybe. Then we can make most of things.

Madai with Roe

I get sometimes roe. This is Madai, sea bream. I don’t dump it. Take it from stomach carefully and wash and cook it. I normally use dashi, sugar, soy sauce, sake and mirin.

We can eat it straight but I do with sashimi.

Sliced hirame or sea bream with a little bit wasabi, sliced avocado and sliced this roe.

What a wonderful taste! I do this for a special dish if it is available.

Glucosamine

Since I got a blow of a witch, I have been trying fix my body. I went to Costco the other day and found Joint juice. This drink contains 1500mg of glucosamine. What is glucosamine?
Glucosamine is a compound found naturally in the body, made from glucose and the amino acid glutamine. Glucosamine is needed to produce glycosaminoglycan, a molecule used in the formation and repair of cartilage and other body tissues. Production of glucosamine slows with age.
Glucosamine is available as a nutritional supplement in health food stores and many drug stores. Glucosamine supplements are manufactured in a laboratory from chitin, a substance found in the shells of shrimp, crab, lobster, and other sea creatures. In additional to nutritional supplements, glucosamine is also used in sports drinks and in cosmetics.

I do market price for tuna because of condition.
