I love to use Asian flavored ingredients whenever I cook. I used to cook braised fish with many kinds of fish since I was living in Hokkaido where is famous for fresh seafood. But it is not easy to get fresh and many variety of seafood in my town. Whenever I get a good fish, it is a great opportunity for me to cook something special. This is the one of the recipes. . I used just one cooking technique which is Otoshibuta, Japanese-style drop-lids which heat is evenly distributed so that taste is great and also keeps fragile ingredients in the original shape.
