Yasssss. We’re approaching Spring and I still haven’t gotten my fix of Japanese winter meals yet (the Onabe that I made the other day was delicious though).
Continuing my stews and streams… Tonight I’m gonna kick back with Fate/Stay Night [Unlimited Blade Works], and in honor of the flick I’m making their famed Shrimp Nabe. NOM. (but seriously why does the food always look so effing delicious in anime)
I’ll be honest. I have absolutely zero clue about what makes a Nabe different from an Onabe. Is Onabe a more formal version?
Both have a flavor packed broth… Both feature stewed veggies… Both get tastier with the “low and slow” cooking mentality. SO PLEASE, SOMEONE, comment below with the difference.
The version featured in Fate/Stay Night is an ultra hearty, shrimp variety. If you can’t get your hands on shrimp, tofu… Chicken… Beef… Pork also work, but
tonight I’m staying true to the movie.
I’m using this recipe from Honey’s Anime, which leverages a miso base (what else?)
And BAM, you’ll get something that looks like heaven.
