Cooking Basics

Oysters - cleaning

Place the oysters into a strainer, then place into 3% salt water and lightly stir with your hands. Clean by shaking the bowl back and forth. By doing so not only sand, but any sliminess and strong odor will also be removed. After cleaning, use paper towels to thoroughly remove any remaining moisture.

Japanese long onion - matchstick juliennes

Cut the Japanese long onion into 5 cm (2 in.) pieces, cut vertically in half, and then slice up thinly lengthwise from side to side.

Garlic - mincing

Remove the skin of the garlic clove, and cut vertically in half. Then remove the core, slice thinly cut-side down without cutting as far as the base part, and lay the knife flat and insert horizontal cuts. Finally, mince from end to end.

Ginger - mincing

Remove the skin of the ginger and thinly slice, gradually sliding and stacking the slices. Then mince the ginger into fine pieces, and slice again finely at right angles.
