Simmering : Simmered Koya Tofu, Shrimp, and Chrysanthemum Leaves
Our theme for this episode is "simmering."
We'll be using the unique Japanese ingredient, koya tofu, as our main ingredient, and simmering it alongside three other ingredients. Koya tofu is freeze-dried, so it soaks up soups and liquids, making it a delicious ingredient to use. Our other ingredients, shrimp and chrysanthemum leaves, are both simmered with different methods, and then all three ingredients are brought together at the end for a finished result as beautiful as it is delicious. We'll also be making a unique variant on fried chicken, using crumbled koya tofu for its breading.
