Broiled Cod and Steamed Bok Choy
Wednesday evening here in Japan and this wind is killing me. My bike ride to and from school was at least 10mins longer since I had to pedal against the wind. The sudden drop in temperature has made my appetite rage for some reason, so I’ve been trying to fight off the hunger by drinking more water or just going to bed earlier…but I’ve been waking up STARVING. Hopefully I’ll get used to the cold and my appetite will return to normal.
Tonight I made very a simple meal. I”m not sure what the red thing is called but I call it kimchee daikon, it can be bought premade here. I steamed a head of bok choy, I like my veggies to have a crunch (die die die die die) in them so I don’t like to steam longer than 5mins or until they reach a bright green color, because over steaming can just cook all the vitamins out of your veggies which defeats the purpose of eating them in the first place. The best way of course is to eat your veggies raw, to preserve the most vitamins. For the main portion of the meal I broiled 6oz of cod (5mins each side). I seasoned it with a little salt and pepper and while it was broiling i squeezed fresh lemon onto the fillets.
