Poke away, we will eat rice salad this summer, but Japanese. Here is the recipe (very good) of the MU Fish restaurant in Nova Milanese. Easy to do, and sure to succeed.
THE'rice salad it's a great classic, of the gastronomic sadness of our Italian summers. It is the truth, that you try hard and prepare everything from scratch, using the best ingredients, or open a jar of preparation, the result is always tristarello. That may be why the pokè has become depopulated: at the bottom it is cold rice with a sauce on it, but it looks better (at least until you mix it with a spoon to eat it).
The surprise of summer comes from Japan, as an inspiration, even if in reality the idea came to Nova Milanese to chef Jiang del MU Fish restaurant. The philosophy of the restaurant is fusion, just like this rice salad dish that combines oriental techniques with European products, and vice versa. Thus was born a rice salad with cooked sea bass, various fish eggs, raw fish tartare and mushrooms. What can you do at home like this?
