  • One More Cooking Question?

    Hello Again:

    Does anyone know of a resource online where I can find "Japanese" fish ( Names) explained in English? This would help me to fully understand how to prepare fish tastefully!

    ( my Swordfish came out horribly dry and too tough)! I love the " Sake" fish or what they call the left over`s when making sake. It actually has a cream like coating , but the smell is awesome, ( as it lingers throughout the house when being baked)! Is there anywhere or anyway to buy just the coating ( I would like to be a bit creative and use a a sauce or topping of some sort).

    Thank You

    Digital Girl!

    He is based in Oita - but his guide has quite a few names. Though you have to go from Latin to English after!

    Otherwise, best bet is a diving shop. Many guides to sea critters published here with pics, and often how to cook 'em.

      Yasuko-san's Home Cooking lists a few fish names here:

      Space Alc is has an E-J/J-E translator, it's not just for cooking but does seem to have an extensive fish vocabulary:

      And if your serious about cooking, you might want to try these books.

      Stone Soup features everyday Japanese homecooking (as in, you want to master sushi this cookbook won't help you), with all the recipes in both English and Japanese and an extensive glossary:

      A Dictionary of Japanese Food is not a cookbook but a, well, dictionary. Very helpful:

      Happy Cooking!
