Other fragrance ingredient that usually used in Manadonese cuisines is  and lemongrass, diffrent from Padangnese cuisines like  Indonesian Beef Rendang, Kalio Sapi (Wet Rendang) or Beef Gulai, the kaffir lime leaves and the lemongrass in Manadonese dish is not discarded after cooking, instead it’s thinly sliced. Thats why you use  only the soft  white part of the lemongrass  into it.

Authentic pampis recipe using ikan cakalang fufu or smoked skipjack tuna, i’m lucky enough to find the vaccum packed cakalang fufu fron Careffour Supermarket. Many of pampis recipes across the internet using fresh skipjack tuna or other white fleshes fish. The whole fresh fish or fish fillets steamed and then shredded before stir fried with the spices. This version is good enought, but you’ll missed the distinct smokey flavour, so i guess the fresh fish fillets is better be grilled irahter than steamed before shredded. The fish fillet is slowly grilled over medium high heat wood charcoal to made the smoke penetrated better into the fish flesh and made the fish fillets firmer and drier. The grilled fish give a savoury flavour and smokey aromas to the dish. Any hot smoked fish will suitable for making pampis, even the rock hard smoked fish like katsuobushi (Japanese smoked skipjack tuna), you can steamed it first to soften it a little bit and made it’s easier to shredded.

Homemade Salmon Gravlax

HOMEMADE SALMON GRAVLAX RECIPE. Gravlax is a raw salmon fillet that cured with salt, sugar, dill weed and  herbs that popular in nothern Europe countries. Gravlax is usually served as an appetizer, sliced thinly and served along  finely chopped dill weed and mustard sauce, either over somekind of toasted bread, biscuits, chips or even boiled potatoes. Gravlax derived from the Scandinavian word grav, which literally means “grave” (in Swedish, Norwegian, Danish), and lax (or laks), which means “salmon”, thus gravlax means “buried salmon”. In the ancient times, fisherman used to save their salmon catch by burried them in the salt-containing sand above the high-tide line.

Gravlax: Homemade Cured Salmon Fillet with Juniper Berries, Szechuan peppercorn and Dill Weed

Eversince i’ve cured my duck breast and venison loin and made myself Homemade Duck Prosciutto (Air Dry-Cured Duck Breast), and Homemade Bresaola di Cervo (Air Dry-Cured Venison Tenderloin), i’m obsessed with making homemade cured meat or charcuterie. Homemade version of gravlax is away cheaper than the gourmet deli store price tag. Making salmon gravlax is actualy effordless since you let the time doing it’s ‘drying’ by osmosis process. Beside, you can control all ingredients and adjust the taste according to your own personal licking. For example, i add szechuan peppercorn to my salmon gravlax to satisfied my asian descent taste buds and you won’t get that anywhere in the store. A splash or liquor on the salmon filet will made your homemade salmon gravlax lovely even more, i recommended citrusy liquor like citrus vodca or cointreau.

When you made  your homemade salmon Gravlax, there’s a plenty of way of serving suggestion. You can served it with toasted bread like my Bruschetta with Venison Bresaola, Cherry Tomato, Avocado Mayonaise and Brazilian Nuts Pesto or with Crispy Spiced Tortilla Bread Recipe. Beside soft cheese and mustard sauce variant of dipping sauce will be suits, you can try Tomato and Mint Salsa Recipe, Roasted Pepper Sauce Recipe, Italian Salsa Verde Recipe, Balinese Sambal Matah (Raw Shallot and Chillies Spicy Salsa), Resep Sambal Dabu-Dabu Khas Manado (Manadonese Raw Chilli Salsa). If you want to, you could add your gravlax to your salad and drizle it with Mint-Chilli Mayonaise.

juniper berry recipe

Juniper Berries

Making homemade salmon gravlax is quite easy, even for an amateur like me. The salmon is “buried” in a dry mixture marinade of salt, sugar, juniper berries, szechuan peppercorn and dill weed. The salmon cured for a few days in the curing mixture. As you can see, the dry curing mixture later be liquidfied because the moisture content on the salmon dripping out and the curing mixture penetrated the salmon meat. No rocket science here, but the osmosis happen when high consentration seperated from the lower consentration by tissues or membrant,  which is the salmon fish flesh, the higher consentration will be dripped into the lower consentration until they got equally consentration. Salmon gravlax is done within the curing process without following smoking like my Homemade Tea Smoked Salmon Recipe. You can use any herb you like and/or add a wide variety of crushed spices to your cure, different kind of peppercorns, star anise, caraway or fennel seeds, but my favourite spice  for homemade salmon gravlax or any kind of my homemade charcuterie is szechuan peppercorn and also juniper berries.

Easy Homemade Salmon Gravlax Recipe

Preparing the homemade salmon gravlax seems so easy and quicky, but curing takes several days so plan ahead before you serving it at your party. Salt and sugar bring somekind of pleasant umami and  balanced flavour. If you made your gravlax made without sugar, it can easily become too dry and rubberry, and for sure it’s taste terribly salty. The ratio of salt and sugar used in gravlax recipes varies widely, due more to personal preference than food safety. As this recipe proves, large amounts of salt and sugar aren’t really necessary. Experiment and find your own favorite ratio of the two, keeping in mind that not enough salt will result in mushy, under-cured fish and too much (without any sugar to balance it out) will make the fish tough and super-salty.  Wll cured homemade gravlax should have a fresh but bold salmon flavor with some tingling spicy flavour of herbs and peppercorns. The texture will be slightly firmer than raw salmon, but should never be tough or chewy.

Sakana Ochazuke Recipe, Green Tea Broth with Rice and Miso Marinated Grilled Fish Fillet)

ochazuke recipe fish over rice with green tea broth matcha konbu dashi bonito stock

Sakana Ochazuke (Green Tea Broth with Rice and Miso Marinated Grilled Fish)

Sakana Ochazuke Recipe. Ochazuke () or sometimes caled  chazuke  (, ちゃづけ) is a quicky Japanese dish consist of rice and savoury topping and then poured with green tea, broth/stock (dashi), or boiling hot water. The amount of green tea broth and rice ratio is similiar with milk for breakfast cereal. I guess ochazuke resembles of hard work ethic of Japanese people who want to finish their lunch or breakfast  meal as quick as possible and they could came back to work, as you know; liquid simplified our swallowing process.

recipe sakana ochasuke japanese rice tea with grouper fish topping nori

Recipe Sakana Ochazuke (Red Rice with Miso Marinated Grilled Fish FIillet & Green Tea Broth)

Japanese Sakana Ochazuke derived from sakana means fish, while ocha is tea and  tsuke for submerged in English.  Sakana Ochazuke means rice with  tea broth and savoury  fish topping, since i’m using matcha or green tea, i guess this dish can be called Sakana Matchazuke Recipe. Okey then, what the heck with the the names, common savoury toppings used for ochazuke is nori (seaweed), furikake (seasoned fish floss), sesame seeds, tarako (salted fish roe), salted salmon, Tea Smoked Salmon,  scallions and assorted fish cakes or any processed seafood. Beside that, tangy pickled such as tsukemono (pickled vegetables), and umeboshi (pickled sour plum) commonly used too.

Red Rice, Topped with Miso Marinated Fish Fillet, Nori, Scallion, Edamame and Served with Green Tea Dashi

Never judge the book by it’s cover, i learned my lesson once i had my first chazuke back  in the early of new millenium. I was in the junior high school when my friend celebrated his birthday in a Japanese restaurant in Palembang. The description of ochazuke within the menu sound a little bit bizzare for my Indonesian mindset; miso glazed grilled salmon over rice and served with light green tea broth. Since i had no idea what i’m gonna ordered, i just replied idem once my friend order the salmon ochazuke. Eversince i eat my first salmon ochazuke, it’s become one of my favourite japanese dish. Unfortunately, none of the Japanese restaurant in Palembang had this menu today. My last ochazuke was about 2 years ago during my visit to Jakarta and i’m intruguing to made  it once i read the the Unagi Chazuke Recipe from Justonecookbook.Com.

Sakana Ochazuke recipe with Miso Marinated Grilled Giant Grouper Fish and Green tea Broth

Japanese Ochazuke recipe is a very clever and flexible,  i mean beside ochazuke is made as quick as you snapping your finger, you can use any kind of your preference topping too.  You can even use any leftover rice in your fridge, which is quite not comforting to eat instead of eaten as Nasi Bakar Recipe (Grilled Rice) or Nasi Goreng Recipe (Fried Rice). Eversince i’m on low calories and high fibers diet, i choose red rice instead of white rice to increased my daily fibers intake. For my ochazuke main topping,  i made miso marinated grilled fish which is similiar with my previously Pan Seared Grouper Fish Fillet Recipe, but i marinated it first with miso or fermented soybean paste before i pan grilled it.  Beside,  i served my ochazuke with edamame (soybean), thinly sliced scallion and crispy roasted nori (seasoned seaweed).

ochazuke recipe green tea broth dashi katsuobushi konbu shiitake mushrooms

Green Tea Broth (Matcha Dashi) Ingredients: Matcha (Green Tea), Katsuobushi (Smoked Fish Flakes), Dried Shiitake Mushrooms, Kombu (Salted Seaweed)

Best Japanese ochazuke recipe determined by the tea or the broth for dredging the rice. My friend told me that the best tea for ochazuke is the roasted green tea leaves that packed with roasted rice. Since i can’t found any of that kind of green tea here in Palembang, i’m using powdered Korean matcha or green tea, but you can use any kind of your favourite flavoured tea too. Instead using green tea only, i made my ochazuke special with serving it with my homemade green tea flavoured dashi. Dashi is Japanese broth that contains katsuobushi (smoked skipjack fish flakes), kombu or konbu (salted seaweed) and dried shiitake mushrooms. All the ingredients is chopped, mixed with water and simmerred for hours to extract all the flavour. I guess my green tea dashi broth needed no sort of cubed bouillon stock or addictive flavour because it’s super umami naturally. The pleasant bitterness of matcha or green tea blended well with the savoury hint of basic Japanese dashi stock.
