6. After 10 min simmering, remove the rice from the heat. Leave another 10 minutes but do not lift the cover yet. Then transfer into a moistened heat-safe bowl (or sushi "oke"). Pour the sushi vinegar on it in one go. Slice the rice and let it cool down. Cover and set aside.
7. Now wipe the fish's excess salt with a kitchen towel. Add oil (1 tsp) on a frying-pan and heat over medium heat. Wipe any excess oil. Place the filets skin side down. Cook for about 4 minutes. Then flip them gently and cook another 3 to 4 minutes. Set aside.

9. _ Putting the sushi together_
Place a nori (shiny side down) on your sushi rolling mat. Spread 1/4 sushi rice evenly, leaving a space of about 2cm uncovered along the edge. Cover the rice with saran wrap and flip. Roll up tightly, while removing the saran wrap at the same time.
10. Once rolled up, sprinkle some scallion and place the fish. Brush with the sauce. Wrap with saran wrap tightly. Set aside and repeat for the 3 other rolls.
11. Cut the sushi roll and clean your knife each time you finish a slice. Note : Keep the saran wrap when you cut the sushi. Remove it when the slicing is done.
12. Place the sliced sushi and add more sauce if you like.
1. In a wok or skillet, heat 2 tbsp vegetable oil and fry garlic until fragrant. Add onion, red onion, carrot and cook, finally add ground beef, continue stir-frying until the meat is no longer pink.
2. Add "seasoning" ingredients (cooking sake, soy sauce, worcestershire sauce, honey, ketchup, tomato paste, kosher salt, curry powder, paprika powder). Stir for another 3~5min over low heat. Then add green bell pepper. Cook for another few minutes.
3. Add mustard and sugar. Stir well.
4. Serve with hot steamed rice, top with an egg over the rice.

2. In a small cup, add baking soda and fine salt, then add the water, mix well and set aside. Turn the machine on and set it to the quantity you are making. Press Start.
3. Slowly pour the water mix through the opening in the lid.
4. Ramen dough will begin to form and ramen noodle will come out within a few minutes. Cut the first ramen noodles at about 10cm length and put them back in the machine's mixing tank. That's because the first noodle is not smooth enough :-)
5. The noodles will be extruded. Cut the ramen every 35cm (approx).
6. Toss the ramen noodles with a little bit of flour or katakuriko/potato starch to prevent sticking.

4. Deep-fry until they are lightly browned. Transfer onto the paper towl to remove excess oil.
5. In a big cooking pot, add water and bring it to a boil. Add the soba noodles, and stir gently, so they don’t stick together. Cook until al dente or how hard you like your soba.
6. Drain the soba noodles and wash the noodles in cold water to get rid of any slimy texture.
