Love japanese food with a big big passion so happy to help!

What sort of thing you after? 3 courses? Sushi? Meat or vegetarian or fishy?

three courses...probably sushi for starters.

I love japanese too. My dh took me to a japanese restaurant a couple of weeks ago. You know, where they cook on your table. I was so impressed and the meal was gorgeous. So I wanted to try my own.

Is it just for the two of you or a group, such as a party?

We usually start with miso soup, although we make udon noodle soup which is a variation.
Easiest way to make it is with a packet of the dried mix (or the paste) add hot water as per instructions (usually one little pack per person, with 250ml water). We add wakame sushi (hydrating it first as on packet, usually 10 min in a bowl of water.
Then we add shitake mushrooms sliced, and udon noodles. Mix in a big saucepan, heat for 10 min or so.

Chicken teriyaki sushi

1 chicken breast cut into strips
2 tbsp teriyaki sauce (can buy readymade in supermarkets)
1 tbsp oil
250g sushi rice (made up as per packet)
6 sheets nori (dried pressed sushi sheets, available in supermarkets)
5cm piece of cucumber peeled and cut into strips.

Toss the chicken in the teriyaki sauce and then the oil and lay out on a foil lined grill pan. Grill on both sides for about 4 minutes, put into a bowl with the juices and cool.

Divide the rice into 6 portions and put a sheet of nori shiny side down onto a ROLLING MAT with the longest end towards you and using wet hands spread one portion of the rice in an even layer on the nori, leaving 2cm inch of nori visible at the end farthest from you. Don't squash the rice or make it too thick.
Lay the chicken strips in an even line onto the rice. Then add a line of cucumber next to/on top the chicken. TO roll, fold the mat over, starting at the end where the ingredients are, and tucking in the end of the nori to start rolling. Keep rolling, lifting the mat as you go until finish, Moisten the top edge of the nori with water oto seal it as you close it. Remove it from the mat and cut into 4 even pieces (I cut it into 6 personally) with a wet sharp knife.
Serve with shoyu, wasabi and pickled ginger.

Thanks for that recipe. I may make it for four...but I will practice on my husband first in case it turns out awful.

I was probably looking for a mixture of fish and meat.
