Nitsuke (煮付け) is a traditional Japanese dish with stewed vegetables and fish. In this version we use Ora King Salmon, gobo root, daikon, carrots, shiitake mushrooms, snow peas, lotus root and sato imo potato. All of the ingredients are simmered in a soy-dashi broth with sake and mirin. The result is a symphony of flavors and textures best eaten with some chopsticks and a steaming hot bowl of rice.
This is a great salad for a healthy lunch that you can easily pack if you are on the go. Inspired by Italian Panzanella and Fattoush from the Middle East we combined tomatoes, chickpeas, roasted garlic, red onion, cucumbers, avocados and toasted flatbread. We finish this with fresh herbs and a simple vinaigrette. Read our full story for other options with pita bread and roast chicken.
