THE HISTORY OF TEPPANYAKI
What does teppanyaki mean? It means, quite literally, broiled on a steel grill, which is the definition of Japanese teppanyaki-style cooking in its most simple form. However exactly when teppanyaki-style first came into use is a bit more complicated.
Some believe the tradition began over 200 years ago when families would prepare food together on small hibachi grills. Others believe it began in the early 1900’s with teppanyaki chefs introducing the style, along with their intricate knife skills, to diners.
Regardless of which story is true, teppanyaki has evolved greatly over the last hundred years, moving from food that was simply “broiled on a steel grill” to something of an art form. Today, teppanyaki chefs are performers as well as skilled cooks, delighting diners daily with mouthwatering flavors and jaw-dropping knife skills.
ALL ABOUT SUSHI
TYPES OF SUSHI & SASHIMI
When most people think of sushi, the first thing they think of is raw fish. However, sushi actually gets its name from the seasoned rice that accompanies the fish. So many types of sushi are made with cooked ingredients, like barbecued eel (unagi) or Japanese omelets (tamagoyak). Sashimi, on the other hand, is always made with fresh, raw meat and fish, elegantly sliced and served with a variety of colorful garnishes. At Shinju restaurants, sushi and sashimi, in addition to teppanyaki selections, are always on the menu.
POPULAR TYPES OF SUSHI INCLUDE:
Nigiri sushi is the most popular form of sushi, where various ingredients are placed on top of a bite-sized base of rice.
Maki-zushi or Norimakisushi is rolled sushi. Made by rolling fish, vegetables and rice into a sheet of dried nori, using a bamboo mat, then cutting it into bite-sized pieces.
Te-maki sushi is “hand roll” style sushi. Made by rolling rice and other ingredients with nori to form a cone shape that’s easy to pick up and eat with your hands.
Gunkan-maki sushi is sushi where nori is wrapped around rice to create a shallow dish, then filled with seafood like sea urchin or salmon roe. Hako-zushi sushi is sushi pressed in a box, then cut into bite-sized pieces.
Inari-zushi sushi is deep-fried tofu pockets stuffed with seasoned rice.
Nare-zushi sushi is traditional fermented sushi, where the fish is fermented over a period of days.
