Tofu with Soy-Butter Corn

Image
The combination of flavors in this recipe—sweet late-season corn, soy, and butter—is not unusual. As Hiroko Shimbo writes in her book Hiroko’s American Kitchen, corn and butter are a common pair in Hokkaido, the northernmost island of Japan, where both are produced. Here the three come together, along with pan-fried tofu, scallions, mirin, and sesame oil, to make an ultra-flavorful, just-rich-enough vegetarian main. Serve it over rice, a chewy grain like farro or wheat berries, or arugula dressed with rice vinegar and more sesame oil. A crispy fried egg would also be welcome. https://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/tofu-with-soy-butter-corn

Whole Fish Ssam

Image
In Korean, ssam literally means “wrapped”—set the fish in the center of the table and pull the meat off the bones, using chopsticks to fill lettuce wraps along with radish salad, ssamjang, kimchi, and rice. Roasting a whole fish—skin, bones, and all—is surprisingly easy, and the flesh stays moist and flavorful even if you overcook it a touch. Preheat your baking sheet for extra insurance against sticking and to keep the sesame seed crust clinging tightly to the crisp skin. https://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/whole-fish-ssam
