Instant Pot Japanese Recipes
 
There’s more to Japanese food than raw fish. Traditional cooking emphasizes variety and balance using fresh, high-quality seasonal ingredients. The way in which food is prepared changes its appearance, texture, perception of flavor, and nutritional value. Therefore, many menus may have a series of courses with a dish prepared in a different way. This is actually a great cost-effective way of using limited resources while creating an enjoyable meal.
 
Japanese food is a celebration where all the senses play an important role. The cuisine is based on rules of five:  the use of five colors (black, white, red, yellow, and green), five cooking techniques (raw food, grilling, steaming, boiling, and frying), and five flavors (sweet, spicy, salty, sour, and bitter).
 

Five popular seasonings in a Japanese pantry:

 
  • SA > Sato (砂糖) > Sugar
  • SHI > Shio (塩) > Salt
  • SU > Su (酢) > Rice Vinegar
  • SE > Seuyu (醤油) > Soy Sauce
  • SO > Miso (味噌) > Miso
