Oroshi Ponzu

This Oroshi Ponzu is good stuff! I bought it at Marukai. Unfortunately, I don't remember how much I paid for it.


It is a citrus sauce with grated daikon in it.

Landon used it in this steak dish that he made. He just grilled the steak and added the ponzu, fried garlic chips, green onions and shibazuke tsukemono.

Yum yum! The men in your family are just so fantastic!

(and yes, I am almost functioning and can use my left hand much more. I LOVE my pink removable brace.)

i remember my mom taking me to sushi bars and always picking on some 'Ikura Oroshi'.. that was the fish eggs with the grated dikon, but she always added the wasabi shoyu sauce. Whats Oroshi mean anyway... 'grated to mush'? Now the only time i have that is when i eat my brothers food @ ala cart. He uses his ponzu daikon spicy sauce that u supposed to dip his items in. Yum. CQ

I like ponzu sauce on my food. There's a mini mart/shoppette next to ChoDang restaurant and Eggs and Things. Every-time I pickup a bento or chirashi bento, I asked for extra packets of the ponzu. Compliments food with it's tanginess.

have you guys ever heard of finadene? It's from guam and it is a kind of spicy ponzu. Very easy to make and add your own take on it....
start with equal part shoyu and vinegar, try 1/4 cup each. chop 1/2 onion and 2 jalapeno or whatever kind of chili pepper, like serrano (not sure about hawaiian chili (bird pepper) because I like the crunch and flavor of jalapeno). If you leave the seeds and membrane of the jalapeno, might be really spicy, up to you. That's it!!!! I also squeeze half lemon and some zest, or just throw in lemon slices. They use this on chicken, fish, steak, pork, anything!
you can adjust more shoyu for little saltier taste, or more vinegar or lemon if you want more tart.

Aunty, Landon especially is creative with food. Glad to hear that your recovery is going well!

CQ, you just made me so ono for your brother's kushiyaki.

Yours was ono too, Les.

Hmmm, never noticed that place, Chet . . . although I do go to the Nijiya Market once in awhile.

V, my friend who lives on Guam sent me this recipe about 6 years ago. I never made it myself but passed it on to my sister who was interested. Now that you've piqued my interest, maybe I will try and make it.
1 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup lemon (calamansi or local lemon is really good, some people use lemon powder diluted w/water)
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
1/2 cup quartered cherry tomatoes (optional but really yummy in finadeni)
1/4 cup chopped green onion
hot peppers (boonie peppers we call many as you can stand!)

I noticed that Dd.

I'm so lucky yah, Izsmom!

Kat, he made two steak dishes that night. The other one had shiitake and enoki mushrooms in it.

I think you would really like the fina dene, I sometimes put the tomatoes, especially if I have chicharon/lechon kawali. I also like to use mix of red and green jalapeno, just because the color makes it more appetizing. Yah, only difference is I use half vinegar/lemon.

and now, I could use it with daikon oroshi!!! Thanks for the idea!

Oh my! Your whole family are amazing chefs.

V, I bought a lemon yesterday to try make. Wish I had a Meyer lemon tree like Gary. You ever saw pictures of his tree/lemons? I'm so jealous.

Kay, the two guys are . . . grandpa was too!
