Mekabu & Dried Mackerel ( with Grated Radish)


These are probaby very Japanese. It looks like elderly people's meal. Above right is green tea. The middle one is the cooked ( in a pan with sesame oil ) dried mackerel. It is already salted, so I didn't add any soy sauce. Some people need soy sauce though. ( Again, I don't like salty food much, so usually don't add any soy sauce to this kind of fish. ) The bed of the fish is grated radish. Pretty good to me. Above left is rice with Mekabu.... I don't know the proper word for this. The topping is grated ginger. I used the attached sauce and Yuzu ponzu ( Yuzu lemon or lime juice with soy sauce). Mekabu is suppoed to be nutritious since it is the root part of seaweed , whose role is to produce spores. It has algin acid, minerals, EPA, iron etc.... sticky,but feels healthy. Similar to this is..... probably Okura. ( the green veggie.)
