I love it when Hiro cooks. Sadly, he doesn’t to do it much these days as his working schedule is manic to put it lightly. However, he did cook this week and it was delicious.
To me nothing beats the simple delicious taste of grilled fish! I dislike it when people go mad seasoning fish, there is no need. Le poisson du jour was Bream.

I am rather fond of the salty fresh taste of samphire these days. I think it lends itself well with plain rice.
If you haven’t tried samphire before, you can get it at your local fishmongers (well in UK anyway). I think the Japanese refer to this is “sea asparagus”, rather appropriate really as it tastes very similar only finer and saltier.
Miso soup with aubergine, samphire and wakame. I know what my Japanese readers must be thinking! “THAT LOOKS LIKE BREAKFAST”!! It certainly does! But here in the land where good Japanese food don’t come cheap or easy…..this is heaven!
