During Japan Expo, Justine Petit gave you the recipe to start your days the Japanese way. Here is how to prepare your Japanese breakfast! Rice, Miso soup, and grilled fish: not much to do with your bowl of cereals!!
The daily breakfast is made of rice, Miso soup, a main dish, and 2 or 3 side dishes. This works for breakfast and also for the other meals of the day for balanced and nutritious.

½ Tofu bloc
1 fish fillet per person
What to do now?
To prepare the rice
- Put the rice in a big bowl and add water. Stir and quickly empty the water which has become white.
- Add new water to the bowl and wash the rice.
- Repeat 3/4 times until the water is clear.
- Put the water you measured and the rice in a thick saucepan and let it rest for 30 minutes.
- Put a lid and boil the water and rice at strong temperature, then reduce to medium temperature. Leave for 7/8 minutes and then reduce to minimum temperature to let it simmer for 15 minutes.
Switch the fire off and let it rest with the lid on for 10/15 minutes.
Never remove the lid while the rice is cooking.
- Remove the lid and stir the rice, then serve.
To prepare the grilled fish
- Salt the fish on each face, cover it, and let it rest for 15 minutes.
- Heat a pan with some oil and put the fish on the skin side.
- When the skin is grilled, turn the fish over, and leave it for 3/4 more minutes.
To prepare the Miso soup
- Add the Dashi to the water and boil it.
- While it boils, cut the Tofu in 1cm cubes and slice the green onions thinly.
- Reduce to minimum temperature and add 1 tablespoon of Miso. Taste it and add a second one if necessary.
Add the Tofu and onion.
Never boil the soup when the Miso has been added: Miso turns bitter when boiled.
Time to eat: enjoy!!
