I love weekends which give you the time to experiment in the kitchen and that’s exactly how I used my time this weekend.
Yesterday I decided to try making Gyoza for the first time. I wasn’t alone, alas Mr Oliver helped me through the media of his comfort foods book.
I found it a really straight forward recipe to follow but you defiantly need a good hour or two for the prep.
I enjoyed making the Gyoza dough but found it a real workout session trying to get it nice and thin.
But it was all totally worth it!
The Gyoza were perfectly formed and perfect in taste. They were nice and light (which meant I ate about 15!) and they were fantastic in the dipping sauces (although they were equally tasty without!). The ginger and spice really fired through, a taste sensation!
I love sushi yet I have never attempted to make it…..until now!!!
Seriously, how easy! I’ll defiantly be making more in the very near future.
It’s pretty much s matter of deciding what taste you want, cooking the rice and rolling it all up….tadahh!!!
We opted for smoked salmon, prawn and teriyaki mackerel. They were rolled with a mixture of sliced cucumber, pepper and advacado. Served with dipping soy sauce, wasabi paste and wasabi mayo.
Totally tasty. Far too much. Lunch for tomorrow sorted.
