Japanese seafood doria by kurumicooks tasty easy healthy Japanese Asian and Fusion food and cooking for your kitchen

Of all the Western dishes that Japan has made it's own, I think doria might be my favourite. If you've never heard of or eaten a doria, let me explain what it is - doria was apparently introduced into Japan by the Swiss master chef of the Yokohama New Grand Hotel way back in the 1920s. A doria consists of cooked rice, mixed with seafood or chicken and usually flavoured with tomato ketchup, covered in a white sauce. This is then baked in the oven. You can find it in restaurants all over Japan and it's a dinner table regular in most homes as well. It's a cinch to make. (It's also the best way I know of using leftover rice!) and a real tummy warmer now that the days are beginning to close in. If you'd like to try my seafood doria recipe, you can find the written recipe below or by clicking Seafood Doria. The Youtube tutorial is here Seafood Doria.

Happy cooking! Kurumi XXXX.
