I love sushi, but have to watch the raw fish so I figured I would try these lovely salmon and cucumber sushi rolls with smoked salmon. Add a bit of cream cheese to counteract the amount of salt in the soy sauce and the salmon plus the refreshing cucumber. For the rice I used a recipe I found on a proper Japanese website and in that recipe I substituted the rice vinegar with apple cider vinegar with a pinch of sugar (came from The Cook’s Thesaurus). This is very important to follow the recipe precisely or the rice will not have the right texture and stickiness needed. Oh by the way, I almost forgot: if you can get really fresh fish you can do it with fresh fish instead of smoked salmon. It’s up to you really, just make sure you know where the fish comes from. You can also just make all vegetable sushi. Shrimps, eel and octopus should always be cooked. Salmon and cucumber sushi rolls is a basice recipe that will make you enjoy some nice Japanese food right at home.

Lidia Bastianich is one of the best chefs in America. She is always in service to the food, not her own ego, yet there is a self-contained sureness in her as she teaches on television and in her books. While I bow to her exquisite knowledge of Italy’s regions, and her extraordinary technique, her ability to translate recipes for those of us who are home cooks, is wise and rare. You do not pick up one of her cookbooks and think, “I can’t possibly do this”. In fact, you can’t wait to get at it, and the dish never disappoints. That’s what happened with salmon fillets with prosecco sauce. It was hard to choose a recipe from her book, but in the end I had to go with what I consider the temptress in Lidia’s stable, gorgeous yet simple salmon fillets with prosecco sauce that you and your guests are not likely to forget. Seriously, they don’t get easier than this, and with such a wondrous payoff.

Fish can be eaten in many different ways, but salmon teriyaki it’s truly a simple, quick and extremely tasty recipe, that can be made at home without too many efforts. To preparate salmon teriyaki the only thing you need to do is to marinate the fish in some homemade teriyaki sauce first, finishing by just grilling the salmon. If you make the teriyaki sauce in advance and keep it fresh in the fridge, salmon teriyaki only takes 15 minutes of your time to be ready to be served, so if you don’t have much time but you still want to impress your guests, then this recipe is probably what you are looking for. Even teriyaki sauce is very simple, all you need is soy sauce, sake and mirin combined in equal parts; this japanese sauce makes the meat (or fish in this case) softer and much more tasty than other sauces.
