Tasty, healthy fats and a yummy, vitamin rich salad.
We couldn't have discussed to topic of Japanese food without making a fish dish.
Since Japan is made up of many islands, fish is widely available here and a staple of Japanese cuisine. People in Japan will easily eat their 2 or more recommended servings of fish every week. This in turn decreases the risk for cardiovascular diseases in Japan.
What lacks in the Japanese diet is fiber - resulting in a high constipation rate. Consuming more whole grains (such as brown rice, whole wheat noodles - such as soba noodles), fruits and vegetables could help reduce this. I chose to pair my salmon dish with white rice, yet added a salad to make for a more complete meal.
I got my inspiration for the Miso Salmon recipe from Tasty's Rie (because everyone loves a girl who can Make it fancy!). I then modified my Sushi Salad recipe for a simpler yummy Carrot Salad that goes extremely well with the salmon. Add a small amount of rice (about the size of your fist) and you are done!
