Simmered Daikon & Yellowtail (Buri−daikon), 
Clear soup with Fu, Some side dishes
directionSimmered daikon and yellowtail-fish (Buri) is a very popular dish in winter.  We used to cook it in wintertime, because this is the perfect time to find the flavorful daikon and yellowtail fish. Now it is the perfect time to taste the savory flavor of the simmering daikon and yellowtail fish.
Daikon is widely used in Japanese cooking because soup and flavor of all ingredients seep deeply into daikon by simmering together.
The yellowtail-fish (Buri) is called with different names at the different stage of its growth*.We used to call it ‘Buri’ when it becomes the largest size, about 80cm and more. In the beginning of winter it is possible to find it, but it is important to cook it to avoid the fishy smell.
Today, we will introduce how to cook it in the more tasty and easy way.

Both dishes will warm you up!
*Small one(around 10-inch) is ‘wakashi’, medium one(16-inch) is ‘inada’, large one (24-inch) is ‘warasa’, the largest one is ‘buri’
