Food is king. This is not news. Food is not only, of course, what powers our bodies, but also what makes us happy and accommodating and not wanting to kill everyone in a hungry rage. No? Just us? Oh ok…. Welcome to eat like your anime faves! This week, we are consulting the almighty god of cooking aka Shokugeki no Souma for how to make delicious food! It seems like every week with season two aka Ni no Sara, that we are getting more and more delicious foods. Maybe this week should just be called “Shokugeki no Souma recipes”. Let’s not keep you waiting anymore and get right into it!
1. Fried Cod from Shokugeki no Souma: Ni no Sara
Delicious. Utterly delicious.
What you will need: (Note: Serves 1-2 people.)
A common variation, as strange as it may sound, is to crush crackers to a pulp and use them in lieu of panko. Panko is the more traditional route while crackers would be a more modern effect.
How to Cook It:
1Wash the cod fillets and then try them well. Then, place them in a bowl and sprinkle the salt over them. Once this is done, pour the cooking sake/wine over them and let them sit for 15 minutes.
2While you are waiting, if you are going the cracker route, pulverize those bad boys now. A rough estimate is that for two small fillets, 13 crackers should be about enough. Set aside the panko or crackers in a bowl.
3After they have sat for 15 minutes, take the fillets and rinse them lightly. Then use paper towels to get rid of ALL MOISTURE.
4Start to heat up your oil in a frying pan, you only need enough for frying. This is not deep fry, but pan frying.
5Next, add in your pepper and powdered/shredded cheese. Mix well in a bowl.
6Once you have done this, add in your flour. Then beat the egg in a separate bowl.
7Dip the cod in the egg, then the panko/crackers. Do it once again.
8Put it CAREFULLY into the oil and cook it on middle heat gently moving them and flipping them every couple of minutes.
9Once they are all fried and done, melt your butter and then gently coat the drying cod fillets while they cool.
(Note: Be careful. This recipe calls for both raw fish and eggs. Clean as you go using hot water and soap at the very least. )
2. Tartar Sauce from Shokugeki no Souma: Ni no Sara
What you will need:( Serves as many people as you want it to. Seriously… 8 tablespoons of mayonnaise should not be consumed in one sitting.)
How to Cook It:
1The fun begins here. Boil your two eggs.
2While they are cooking, mince your onion. Then put it in the microwave for about one minute and steam it. Take it out after and let it cool. (The trick here is to cover it with plastic wrap).
3Once the eggs have boiled, dice the yolks while mincing the whites and put them into a bowl.
4Add in your now cooled down onion as well as the salt and pepper and mix together.
5Add in the Mayonnaise, lemon juice, and parsley and mix well!
6It is technically done once you have done this step, but it tastes better after about 30 minutes to an hour in the fridge.
(Note: You have to boil the eggs carefully so be sure to do it safely and not get burned by the steam or hot water. )
