Tiki Bars and Glutamate? Sure!
For the record, neither DJ Hanabi nor Insane Dane are licensed physicians, unless you count “love doctor” which would have been a really funny thing to have just said in 1986. I should know, because I was there for it. Classic! Anyway, on the show we discuss glutamate. What is it, and are we over saying you shouldn’t eat it yet? Hanabi gets down at Toulouse Petit and Maneki. See what he has to say about them.
Want a recipe for a quick stir-fry to get rid of some things in the fridge instead of throwing them out? Of course you do:
Hanabi says the ingredients are:
Rayu (Japanese chili-oil)
Aromatics (You know, onions, garlic)
Ponzu (Japanese soy sauce enhanced with citrus)
Mexican bouillon cube (secret Hanabi ingredient)
Greens (whatever you like)
Veggies (up for grabs)
Obviously, you’ll start with a hot wok or skillet, and add oil (not olive because it burns). I mean hot. You can’t get good stir-fry if you use low heat.I’m sorry but you can’t. Next add your powdered ingredients to create a nice paste. Add a splash more oil and add aromatics, then tofu or mushrooms if you want, then the greens. Cook quickly, and always be stirring and then add the ponzu to taste. But, make sure any liquids have cooked off. There’s nothing worse than mushy stir-fry. Once you have some good color on things and liquids are cooked off you’re ready to put it over rice, or stir in some pre-cooked noodles if you’re feeling crazy.
