Sea Bream on Somen Noodles

I enjoyed this in an exclusive Japanese restaurant. It takes a bit of time to cook at home but it's worth it.

Recipe By: midnight kitchen (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/111)
Serves 3 Cook: 25 min

Ingredients

Whole sea bream 1/2
Kombu seaweed 10cm
Water 500ml
Bonito flakes 15g
Kombu seaweed 5cm
Salt 1/2 tsp
Light soy sauce 1 tsp
Somen noodles 100g
Spring onion or leek 1
Carrot a little
Lime 1/2

Method

1
Remove the scales and bone from the sea bream. Put the kombu (10cm) on the fish and keep in the fridge for 2 hours. Score into the skin and cut into 3 slices.
2
Put the kombu (5cm) and bonito flakes into the water in a pan and add the salt and light soy sauce. Heat gently for a few minutes.
3
Divide the somen noodles into 3 and bind with string at one end.
4
Cut the spring onion or leek (white parts) into very fine strips and soak in water.
5
Put the sea bream skin side down in a frying pan (no oil) and cook on high heat. When nicely browned, turn it over and cook further.
6
Cut the carrot into thick batons and cut nearly in half. Microwave for 30 seconds.
7
Boil the somen noodles for 1 minute (it's easier in a deep frying pan).
8
Rinse the noodles, cut off the string and put into a soup bowl. Place the cooked sea bream, spring onion strips and carrots on top. Pour over the stock from step 2, squeeze a dash of lime juice and serve.

Tips & Note

●Adapt the garnish according to the season - I use spring onions and carrots in the summer. You can add green beans, asparagus, whatever you like.

Osso Buco, which translates as “hole of bone” is pure meaty awesomeness. Placing on a bed of risotto or polenta pays tribute to Osso Buco’s roots and takes this Italian comfort food to another level. Traditionally, Osso Buco is made with veal but see how I make Beef Osso Buco, a carnivorous wreath.

Risotto doesn't always have to be the star of a dinner menu, it can also serve as a great bed for another dish which it does in episode 106 of POV Italian Cooking where I make a simple Beef Tomato Risotto.

It can be difficult to make a perfect hard-boiled egg that has a creamy yolk and a tender white. Overcooking a hard-boiled egg, which is easy to do, results in a chalky and sometimes greenish yolk, a rubbery egg white and a slightly sulfuric taste. In this video I demonstrate how I use my sous vide to get the perfect hard-boiled egg.
