Spring Heat Waves & Ahi Tuna Avocado Poke

Although the vernal equinox occurred a week ago and our Hawaiian tans have long since faded, there’s nothing like a brief heat wave (It’s been in the 70s but more importantly, what’s that bright disc in the sky?) and a

Shrimp Fra Diavolo With Squid Ink Fettuccine

After discovering the gastronomic delights of squid ink paella I really wanted to branch out and try squid ink pasta but the learning curve for making my own pasta seemed too daunting. Luckily for me (and unfortunately for my waistline),

味噌ラーメンの帆立: Miso Ramen With Scallops

Although the sun has been making an guest appearance and everyone’s been scurrying about readying their gardens for the (dream of) summer, it’s still cold at night with lows in the 40s so I’ve been indulging in soup weather. Hot

銀鱈のかば焼き: Black Cod With Kabayaki Sauce

While I enjoy the savory-sweet flavors of うな丼 (unadon) or grilled freshwater eel brushed with かば焼き (kabayaki), that addicting sweet soy sauce-based glaze, eel is off the menu for us. It’s really being overfished cuz young eels at the glass
