Jan 2nd, eating a lot at friend's place.
It was osechi, but the significance was the fish.
When offered as is, no one touched it (we lazzy-).
BUT once it was cooked into rice, dear goodness did it go fast!!!
The rice absorbed the flavor of the salt grilled fish perfectly.
another treat was this; egg yolk preserved in Miso & Shoyu!
A creation by the other guest, M子, 4days in the making!!
The yolk gets firm and becomes something completely different.
Its a salty delight that begs for Sake.
I'm up to a lucky start this year, for sure!!!
