Chef Saito's Kabura-mushi "Steamed Turnips"

2m 45s

Our theme for this episode is steaming. We'll be making Kabura-mushi, or steamed turnip, steaming pure white grated turnip together with shrimp and vegetables for a beautiful traditional Japanese dish. The fluffy white of the grated turnip is evocative of snow, and the thick and shiny yet clear sauce shimmers like ice, giving it a look wonderfully reminiscent of winter scenery in Japan. We'll also be making delicious and nutritious Kayaku Gohan, or rice with chicken and various vegetables mixed in.
