How to make Ochazuke with Salmon Flakes
Ochazuke is a popular Japanese dish in which hot tea is poured over cooked white rice. It is easy to make and could be enjoyed as a snack or light meal any time of the day. The flavor varies depending on the ingredients you use. Some examples of the popular Japanese ingredients include pickled plums (umeboshi), grilled salmon, sea laver (nori), soy-smmered fish, seaweed, broiled eel and tempura. We could also alternate the ingredients by using grilled chicken, grilled salmon, pickled cucumber, smoked salmon and oyster marinated in oil. Seasonings such as Ajinomoto umami, Japanese horseradish (wasabi) and grated ginger would add great flavors to it.
