Miso Marinated Royal Trumpet Mushrooms
Regalis Foods
Yellow miso 75 grams
Rice wine vinegar 50 grams
Water 75 grams
Sesame oil 7.5 grams

In a medium bowl whisk together the miso, tamari, rice wine vinegar, water, and sesame oil.

Split the mushrooms on ½ lengthwise and place in a vacuum bag, pour the contents of the marinade into the bag and soft seal the mushrooms to be sure not to crush them. Marinate the mushrooms overnight or for at least 6-8 hours. Alternatively, if you don’t have a vacuum sealer, place the mushrooms in a Ziplock bag and add the marinade. Keep the mushrooms in the marinade for the same time as above but rotate the bag often to be sure the marinade covers the mushrooms.

Remove the mushrooms from the marinade onto an absorbent towel. Preheat a nonstick pan over medium high heat, with a thin layer of cooking oil. Add mushrooms and sear on the cut side for 3-5 minutes. Flip then cook an additional 2-3 minutes.

Slice the ribeye and season with coarse salt; serve with the mushrooms and enjoy!


Hamachi Collar with Nduja and Sansho Togarashi

Hamachi Collar

Regalis Foods
Hamachi Collars - cleaned and trimmed of connective tissue 4 ea
Water 1500 grams
Salt 75 grams
Rice bran oil - as needed
The Preparation

Combine the salt and water and place in a casserole or large bowl with the collars. Let the fish brine for 30 minutes in a refrigerator. The brine will help clean the fish and also season and slightly firm the flesh of the collars.

Pre heat grill to high heat. Brush the collars with a thin amount of rice bran oil. Place the collars on the grill skin side down first. Char the skin so it becomes crispy, careful not to have flares of flame. Turn 90 degrees after 2 minutes. Cook an additional 2 minutes then turn over each collar. Grill the flesh side of the collars until done. The result should be that the flesh pulls easily from the collar but is not overdone.

Season with the Sansho togarashi and serve with the nduja vinaigrette and rice.
