June 13 2010 Japanese Food Newsletter


I’m looking forward to summer because I adore all the cool summer foods that accompany the season. Of course, it isn’t officially summer just yet but I can prep for it by getting out my bento bako (stacked lunch boxes), picnic baskets and my favorite recipes for picnic foods. While the weather is still cool enough to do some stovetop cooking, I like to make fritters that can be eaten hot or at room temperature to put into my bento.

Fritters make great appetizers or light meals. Any minced meat, seafood or vegetable can be made into fritters. Americans are acquainted with sweet fritters that are like a type of doughnut, but I love savory fritters. This week’s articles include two of my favorite fritter recipes: Shrimp Balls and Curry Carrot Fritters. I also love corn fritters (one that is fluffy and another that is crispy) but those recipes will appear later this summer, so be patient!

Curry Carrot Fritters Recipe
A terrific way to use up a lot of carrots, these golden fritters with a hint of ginger and curry are a favorite. This makes a lot which is good for party appetizers. Eat hot or cold, plain or with some Japanese mayonnaise.

My mother and aunts always fried these yummy shrimp balls and no one could get enough.

Your Japanese food phrase of the week: “Pikunikku ni ikimashoo ka?” (pee-koo-neek-koo nee ee-kee-mah-show kah?) Shall we go on a picnic?

I say this often!
