Recipe : Donburi, the delicious japanese bowl !

Version française Rice and raw salmon… who said cooking was difficult ? Almost two years now that I’m back from my awesome culinary round the world trip that ended with the discovery of the amazing Japan… Believe me, I jumped from one adventure to another after that but my memories are just exactly the same, very true to my experience 2 years ago. And from time to time, I dream about sushis, Gyoza or japanase style...
