wife brought back hotate sashimi, ikura, uni & hairy crabs from hokkaido after her skiing holiday yesterday.
we took the uni earlier as that could not keep.
this evening, we made our own hotate ikura don, plus hotate sashimi & hairy crab.
i made some tamago – japanese pressed egg omelette. tamago texture & taste was very good, but the shape was not yet right. need some more practice, haha!^^
we had very good wasabi. we did not have the sushi rice vinegar, so the sushi rice was not ideal, but overall it was an excellent don.^^
we also used the nori (seaweed) to make a temaki (hand roll).^^
the hotate was plump & so incredibly sweet. 🙂
hairy crab was also excellent. very tasty & juicy.
