I had tasted these inverted makis in a “fusion” restaurant in Santiago, Chile with two friends. Although not very traditional, they were really delicious. I had proposed on the blog, Japanese makis with chilli salmon and Korean gimbaps with chicken. Two similar techniques, but with vinegar rice for the first and sesame oil rice for the second. As we are clearly on the “fusion food” here, I wanted to test a rice both vinegared (in lesser proportions) and with sesame oil. The result is perfect for me. Here with crispy shrimp and cooked and smoked salmon, the makis are rich but decadent and appetizing.
Here’s a simple recipe for crispy, golden shrimp. They are perfect as is with the sauce of your choice, or to incorporate into another recipe that I will tell you about very soon here on my cooking blog!
Generous doughnuts, soft and filled with blueberries, not too sweet! If this makes you want to, I’ll tell you all my secrets. I start with a yudane paste that will give an incredible texture, then I offer a filling with a consistency that holds together perfectly, without being a very sweet jam. Of course you can vary the fruits at will and even put some spread on it…
To some, this may sound crazy, but I am a fan of Brussels sprouts! Not the traumatic ones from our childhood canteen, eh! But the home-cooked ones. I love them no matter how they are cooked. I start with baked cabbage, served with a delicious little tahini sauce. Simple efficient and good!
De drôles de sablés avec une jolie forme en spirale, tout cela sans ustensile particulier. Vous les façonnerez à la main. C’est un peu de travail et vous recommencerez sans doute plusieurs fois pour obtenir un beau dessin. Mais c’est assez amusant à faire, surtout si vous voulez initier vos enfants à la cuisine. Et en plus, ils seront très bons !
Delicious jalapeño peppers filled with cream cheese, cheddar and red bell pepper. I had tasted some in Seattle a while back at a great waterfront restaurant near the university in 2019 and wrote down what I liked so I could make them again. The hardest part is to find the peppers, but if you search on the internet, you will find them without too much difficulty. You can also replace them with mini peppers. It’s nice and crispy, creamy, and very spicy (but bearable) in the case of jalapeños! To be enjoyed with a small soothing sauce.
