Crab with black rice and GoChuJang

Finally had a day off! Made myself this dish and decided to share it!  



Pickled Star Fruit with Seaweed Salad

It has been too long. Parts of me returning is because of finally getting a foothold into my work and partially because my younger sister started a blog and I forgot how fun it was to share art with others.

Here’s a dish that I really enjoyed indulging in on my off day from work. When messing with short grain rice, specfically sushi rice, you really want to wash all the excess starch from the grain relentlessly. The outcome of the texture will have much more of  pearl-like feel then a sticky rice. It tastes clean. Traditionally, sushi rice is cooked with kombu and some add a sachet of bonito flakes. Depending on what you like your rice to tastes like, i.e. acidic or sweet, is up to you!
