made 4pax donburi dinner for my OPS bros today on 1.2.2018. ^^
dinner was only decided 10am this morning…these dishes didn’t need much preparations la… 🙂
i made the sushi rice, 2 cups for 4pax, and added 3 tbsp sushi vinegar. wife told me just take out the rice onto a large bowl & mix…donburi sushi rice doesn’t need to be taken hot..
the rice came out nicely, just the right vinegar flavours.
we had –
- pan seared hokkaido scallops
- teriyaki cod
- braised belly pork + flamed miso belly pork
- USDA prime ribeye steak
- sushi rice
i planned scallops, cod, belly pork & beef & also tamago.
a rather nice gourmet spread, i might add. ^^
i bought the IQF frozen hokkaido scallops S$23.88 for 1kg from giant.
pan seared quite nicely over butter on a non-stick pan…scallops must be bone dry…drizzled a bit sea salt.
scallops were excellent, nicely seared, succellent, plump, sweet..
i did the usual tamago japanese rolled egg omelette – 3 eggs, 2 tbsp mirin, 1.5tbsp tsuyu, 2tbsp water.
came up nicely too.
it’s a good complement to the meat items…
there was no time to do my usual miso cod which required 3days marination in the chiller…
so i just added <1tbsp flat sugar, 2tbsp light soy sauce, 2 tbsp mirin, 2 tsp chopped garlic, 2cm chopped ginger & marinated for about 6 hrs.
then grilled 15mins in 250degC oven.
very tasty cod, done nicely, less firm than a 3 day marinated miso cod..a great dish
i did the braised belly, & also miso belly 6hrs in 95degC oven.
braised belly was marinated with sugar, light soy sauce & mirin. & miso belly with miso.
for the miso belly, i flamed it also with a torch. it was more flavourful than the braised belly.
i had a USDA prime ribeye at S$67/kg from QBfoods. this piece should be about 300g+
the USDA prime steak was excellent!
very sweet, tasty, no residue.
all my friends loved the steak & the donburi dinner.
WT gave me a bottle of pineapple tarts & almond cookies.
i love both both of them, took too much last year also, & now.
we had a great evening. after dinner, wash-up and some chit chat, we decided to go out for some dessert – bingsu!
