A ryokan is a traditional Japanese inn, that usually serves breakfast and dinner. My first experience in a ryokan I had the most exquisite breakfast of my life. It was made entirely from seasonal ingredients, in beautiful serving dishes, and included fish that was served still sizzling over a personal coal grill. While the breakfast I have below is not my version of the divine breakfast I will dream about for the rest of my life, I have prepared a well-balanced, delicious meal that can be made in less than 10 minutes. It is very nutrient dense, and a healthy way to start your day.
- Start a pot of water boiling.
- Bring a pan to temp over high heat. Place the trout in the pan skin side down. Place the lid on the pan, and turn the temperature down to low.
- Pour 1 cup of boiling water into a mug or small bowl. Use the remaining boiling water to cook the soba. Follow the directions on your soba package to cook the noodles.
- Stir the Miso Paste and Dashi into the cup/bowl of boiling water. (Use a tea strainer to fully dissolve the miso paste)
- Add the 1 cm cubes of tofu, and sliced green onion.
- Plate the wakame salad, spinach, and clementine.
- By this time the soba should be done. Drain the noodles, and cool under running water.
- The trout should now be done at this point, ready to serve along side the noodles, and any dipping sauce you enjoy.
