About Me

Here at Sensei Cooks I write about my adventures in the kitchen and sometimes in the dojo.

I have a love for cooking and want to explore all the possible facets of it. Leave no stone unturned so to speak.

I am Vegan and love all types of vegan cooking.

I love the process of cooking. Being in the moment. Sort of Zen and the Art of Cooking.

Hake Piccata

Dylan’s favourite fish dish (minus the sauce) and a real simple meal to make. We make this dish quite a lot. Recipe is adapted from Saveur April 2014, they used sole but Hake, Basa and Cod work just as well.

Ingredients: 1lb of white fish fillets (we prefer hake or Basa) 1/2 cup all purpose […]

Deep-fried oysters with fried kale and tomato dressing

New Year’s Eve and Belle is working on her laptop. Thought I would make a snack for her. Somehow I thought it might make the work bearable. The recipe was for 24 oysters but I only made 5 so I changed the amounts and didn’t have arugula but had her favourite kale. I picked up […]

Mirin Glazed Tofu or Salmon

This one comes from Nigella Lawson and is very, very good. I started making it with tofu for myself and salmon for the rest of the family. Very easy recipe and the sauce is great on the rice – so says Dylan. Of course the salmon is not vegan but using tofu instead makes this […]

Seafood Congee

This is not a vegan recipe but Belle really likes this one. I thought I should make a record of it so I am putting on the blog, sort of my on-line recipe book. This is a very simple Chinese dish and goes great with anything. It is common for breakfast and late night snack […]

Catfish Cakes with Chipotle Remoulade

This was the dish to go with the Gonzales Meatloaf. I had a fear that Belle would not like the meatloaf so I wanted something for her. The chipotle remoulade is great, when I first made and tasted it I said “Wow, that is Hot!” and Belle heard me and was really worried about dinner. […]

Breaded Tilapia

We are trying to work through our freezers and clear all the frozen fish and meat before we end up throwing them out. The plan is working well. We wanted something to go with the Spaghetti with creamy braised garlic and leeks but were not feeling like meat so we opted for Tilapia. This was […]

Hake in Beer Batter

Sean loves fish and chips and is quite the connoisseur of the fish and chips that they serve in the restaurants in our area that he goes to. He is quite particular about how the batter should be and the fish and the chips etc. He really like this one so we have made it […]

Wasabi Tuna

I really like tuna and I like it rare – sashimi. But it is not always easy to find sashimi grade tuna so I usually cook it a liitle bit more, just in case. My Aikido sensei, Karasawa Sensei (sensei means teacher in Japanese, actually it means before born, so they were born into the […]

Swedish Styled Shrimp Salad Sandwich

Belle had to go in for some tests today, all was perfect, but she couldn’t eat anything (the worst thing in the world for her) yesterday and today until 12:30 when she came home. I asked her yesterday what she wanted to eat tomorrow since she had to fast and would be really famished. Steak? […]
