Japanese Salted Salmon Croquettes 塩鮭可乐饼, and more home cooked Japanese dishes

Beside Nasi Lemak and Chinese dishes, another cuisine I cooked the most is Japanese dishes because my family members are also Japanese food lover..I cooked this Japanese Salted Salmon Croquette (mashed potato and other ingredients roll in breadcrumbs and fried) few months back, after I learnt how to prepare Japanese salted salmon..And also check below for many Japanese dishes that I have been prepared at home..
*after this post, I will be away again, this time I bring my mother to fullfill her dream to see Autumn leaves in Japan..I have prepared few scheduled posts about the Italy trip, feel free to check later ya..See you soon and take good care..

Nobody could resist this type of deep fried simple roll


This is a special dipping sauce..

  5. Deep fry patties in hot oil (medium to low heat, 170C-180C) till golden brown.
  6. Enjoy with shredded cabbage and dip with the dipping sauce while hot.

Here are more Japanese dishes I have been cooking, but I have no time to record some of the recipes ...sorry..

Crabsticks and Avacado sushi rolls (mix chopped crabsticks with mayonnaise)

Tonkatsu (deep-fried pork cutlet with breadcrumbs) top with Tonkatsu sauce, serve with miso soup and Japanese rice top with Furikake..

Bought this Tonkatsu sauce from last Kyoto trip..you may find this sauce at the shelf of Jusco or other premium supermarket..very nice when serve with Tonkatsu

Gyoza with miso soup and Japanese rice top with Furikake

Tuna rice ( I learnt this from Japanese drama-Midnight canteen )..
Learnt a quick way of preparing Ramen's soup base from Nami aka Just One Cookbook. Nami's way is to use ground meat instead of thick stock which using bone and spend hour/days to prepare. And we prefer this light miso soup base than the thick and creamy soup base..
I couldn't easily buy fresh ramen at my place, for time being, i found 全蛋麵 (noodles made with 100% of egg) or similar to Wanton noodles best alternative.And remember not to blanch the noodles for too long, less than 1min just nice.

our favourite mashed potatoes-Japanese Mayonnaise Potato Salad

Grilled Saba

Tempura, still need to improve this recipe

Miso Ramen again,top with mixed vegetables

Japanese garlic fried rice..

Ramen with Japanese chasu

Another Nami's yummy recipe, Nagoya Style Fried Chicken Wings, get the recipe from Just One Cookbook

Another Japanese way of Ramen, added with pink fish cake..

Here are few photos I posted in Instagram

Simple Japanese curry rice

Octopus sausage and salted salmon bento

Have a safe trip to Japan! I'm so jealous. Fall is my most favorite season in Japan, and I miss it very very much. I hope you visit northern parts so you get to see the foliage. Still a bit early around Tokyo area.

Thank you so much for mentioning my blog and I totally enjoyed your beautiful and delicious Japanese dishes! I want to be a great cook like you who can bake and cook Chinese and Japanese food! My husband will be happy if I can improve more Chinese dishes.. lol.

Have a lovely holiday in Japan! Take LOTS AND LOTS of pictures for me! xoxo
