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 bowls that I serve with breaded porc, vegetables (a bit like the very famous bibimbap from korea) or raw fish with sesame seeds, a bit of wasabi and soy sauce… easy !

In case you’re wondering in which category this recipe goes… healthy, definitely ! But only if the salmon comes from a farm.  Raw fish + Nori (seaweed) = Super healthy combo !
