Rika’s TOKYO CUISINE
In this episode, we'll be making deep-fried rockfish. By frying these spring fish whole at a low temperature, we can seal in their rich flavor to enjoy their flaky white meat and firm red skin, and serve the fish plated beautifully with grated daikon radish and ponzu sauce and scattered slices of green onion. For our side dish, we'll be making vegetable agebitashi with seasonal vegetables, by deep-frying these vegetables plain and then coating them with a special sauce, for a dish as beautiful as it is delicious. We'll also learn about how to make an Italian-style twist on Japanese octopus rice using a pressure cooker, for a fragrant and delicious dish.
