Cod Tempura

22 Comments

Today I introduce you to “Cod Tempura”. 

Cod has soft white non-fatty meat and a light taste. It is high in good protein and vitamin B12. In Japan we use Cod a lot for homemade dishes. For example, hotpot dishes, simmered dishes, fried dishes and so on.

I would like to talk about Tempura a little bit. At many restaurants in the US, tempura has a very thick and seasoned batter. But Authentic tempura has thin, crunchy and unseasoned batter to enjoy the taste of the fresh ingredients. When we eat tempura, we can spread a little bit of salt or dip into a light dashi sauce which comes with it.

In this recipe, I don’t use any seasoning, but if you want, you can use some salt when you eat it.
