Our Japanese Dinner

For Christmas, I got Peter the cookbook, Everyday Harumi, by Harumi Kurihara.  It's a beautiful Japanese cookbook that's meant to be used by people living anywhere, with access to a variety of vegetables and meats.  It has beautiful photographs and I love the design of the book and Harumi's instructions and commentary as well.

With Peter having the day off yesterday, we decided that it would be a good day to try a couple of recipes from his new cookbook.  So, this weekend, we sat down and went through the book to decide on a menu for tonight's meal.  We decided to make the Vegetable Salad with Miso Dressing and the Fried Shrimp with Breadcrumbs with homemade Ponzu Sauce.

The meal turned out delicious.  The miso dressing would normally be a touch sweet for my liking, but as a dressing to these blanched vegetables, it tasted really great.  I would say that our first attempt at trying recipes from Everyday Harumi was a success!
