Salmon Teriyaki & Japanese omelette (dashimaki-tamago)

Today’s dinner is traditional Japanese 🙂
It is very common in Japan to have several kinds of dishes at dinner.
The portion of each dish is small so that everything can fit in the stomach.
Today, I made following dishes.

– Salmon Teriyaki
– Dashimaki-tamago (Japanese omelette)
– Crumble silken tofu with green beans
– Miso soup with carrot and radish
– Rice

This traditional meal style is called “ichi-ju san-sai (一汁三菜)” and it means “one soup and three side dishes”.
Many people in Japan put high importance to take various nutrition from various ingredients because it is healthy.
Thus, the traditional Japanese meal is ideal for them but at the same time, it requires a lot of time and effort to make many dishes at the same time.
I spent about 1 h to cook all dishes today. It depends on person whether 1 h is long or short 😉
As cooking is for me a relaxing time that can clearly separate work and private life, I personally love to stand in the kitchen and it usually does not bother to spend quite a lot of time there 🙂

I would like to introduce you the recipe of dashimaki-tamago because it is really delicious.

Japanese omelette (dashimaki-tamago) recipe

Servings: 2 people


  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sugar (please adjust as you like)


  • Beat all ingredients together until well blend, try to get some air in the melange while beating.
  • Heat some oil in a small pan (the omelette should be somewhat thick) and cook at low to medium heat until the surface becomes solid.
  • Cut and serve. You can add some grated radishes (better to use the Japanese radish “daikon” or "white radish") to add some freshness.

Tell me how you like it if you try it 😉







  • たまご 3個
  • 水 大さじ3
  • しょうゆ 大さじ1
  • 砂糖 大さじ 1~1.5(お好みで調節してください)


  • たまごをボールに割りいれ、水と調味料を入れて、空気を取り込むようにふわふわと混ぜる。
  • フライパンを熱し、油をひき、1を流しいれる。ふたをして小~中火でたまごの表面が固まるまで焼く。
  • 切ってお皿に盛り付ける。お好みで大根おろしを加えると、さわやかさが増してグッドです。


Bon appétit!
