Big box surf and turf: Japan edition. Found some Wagyu NY strip at Walmart of all places and some massive U13 shrimp at Target. Brushed the shrimp in mayo mixed with yuzu kosho and kanzuri. Grilled over binchitan and served with donabe rice and stir fried veg. My first civilized meal in quite some time. Not bad for the plague times.

Simple. All purpose flour, a drop of salt and pepper, beer. Mix to a thick batter the consistency of emulsion paint. Don't worry too much about smaller lumps. Let rest for around half an hour. Coat the fish and drain off any excess. Fry at around 140ºC until golden brown.

 

Sorry, I can't offer measurements. I do it by sight.

I had two whole squid leftover from the other day... I cut into rings and marinated in olive oil and garlic... I mistakenly purchased self rising flour the other day... I am excited I did as I am scheduled to make this beer bread later this week.  But, yeh, it was primarily for pasta dough, which I wont do now.  So I prepared the squid two ways.. One with pickled peppers from my fridge.. I pickled them in october of this year.. I made Rhode Island style calamari.  I also did the traditional method and served with my tomato sauce,

Early today, I had a couple of these lamb skewers for lunch.. Marinade was 3 days in a fennel pesto and then with a cumin, salt, sichuan pepper, shoaxing wine rub... Grilled some and served with a sichuan pickled pepper and bean mixture, with some vinegar.

@BKEats beautiful squid (but hold the tomato sauce stuff for me) My dad's wife who can NOT bake has a container of self rise flour on the counter top here just for the beer bread! I suppose if I get desperate... I have quarantined  her 3 hours away ;)

So, I have only read about the beer bread... I have my favorite lager that I plan on making it with.. I have this fennel carrot soup on the stove and figured I can serve the two together for dinner tomorrow night... Do you have a favorite beer bread recipe?  Can I make sandwiches with the bread, or is it hard and dense..

Simple stir-fried greens, bok choy in this case.  Just for fun I added a goodly quantity of Sichuan pepper.  Why not?  I have a large bag, and this is the apocalypse.  Whenever I've had Sichuan pepper in a restaurant dish it has been with red pepper as well.  At my age and circumstance there are few novel experiences.  This was one.  I knew Sichuan pepper was related to citrus.  But this dish had a bright citrusy note and the numbing was not unpleasant.

 

Then just in case:

Dinner today was totally Japanese.

 

つくねとごはんとてりやきを食べます

 

My attempt at Japanese lol, it's Tsukune (chicken meatballs), Rice, Teriyaki dipping sauce and I was drinking sake (not mentioned in my Japanese).

 

20200404_175127.thumb.jpg.df841803dc756da05c86d044619b9993.jpg

 

The rice is in a rice bowl we picked up in Japan, the sake cups / bottle as well.  Even the sauce is a small bowl we got in Japan, I should have put it on my  plate, that's how I used it.

 

This is a recipe in Modernist Cuisine and it's my goto recipe for dark chicken meat.

Some small chickens from Heritage Foods.  Leftovers will be made into soup later this week.  Served with mashed potatoes, spinach, and homemade crescent rolls.

 Oh I miss my sake ceramic ware.  It must be somewhere. The old Japanese dollar store is muchly missed. Daiso not cutting it.
