How To Make Nabeyaki Udon (鍋焼きうどん), Udon Noodle Soup with Shrimp Tempura

Nabeyaki udon is one of the first Japanese dishes I really learned how to make. One of my favorite things about Japanese recipes - especially when compared to other East Asian cuisines - is how a lot of it is not only extremely simple to make, but how savory and flavorful the final result ends up being. Case in point, nabeyaki udon blends ingredients like shrimp, mushroom, and dashi broth to create a flavor so clean and full of 'umami' that it might just replace your sick day bowl of chicken noodle. In this card, I'm going to teach you not only how to make this udon soup but how to make shrimp tempura from scratch for the recipe's integral ingredient. However, I will be honest in saying that a lot of the time, I end up cheating and buying premade shrimp tempura made elsewhere. (Check Trader Joe's. Cough cough.) -------------------------------------------------------------- Nabeyaki Udon (Shrimp Tempura Udon Soup) To Make Tempura Shrimp: 2 large tiger shrimp, shelled and deveined with the tails still attached (If your shrimp are frozen, let them thaw in cold water for about 20 minutes.) Salt Potato starch Frying oil (I use soybean.) 1 3/4 cups of water 2 tablespoons tempura flour 1. In a small bowl, cover the shrimp with a little salt and enough potato starch to coat evenly. Add a little bit of water to the bowl, gently tossing the shrimp to coat them in it. 2. Rinse the shrimp in cold water, and then then dry them well with a paper towel. Make diagonal cuts into the length of the shrimp, then gently straighten the shrimp out with your fingers. 3. In a separate bowl, put cold water in a bowl and mix in the tempura flour until fully combined. 4. Sprinkle the shrimp with a bit of salt and apply a very thin coating of more tempura flour to each. Dip one shrimp into the batter and gently place the shrimp into a frying pan of oil, heated to around 350F. 5. As the shrimp fries, use a pair of cooking chopsticks to reattach stray bits of tempura back to the shrimp. Add the second shrimp, fully frying both. 6. Once the tempura becomes crisp, carefully shake off the excess oil and transfer the shrimp onto a plate or cooling rack. To Prepare Toppings: 6 fresh shiitake mushrooms, stemmed (You can use dried shiitake mushrooms as well, but you must submerge them for at least 30 - 60 minutes in a small bowl of water to prepare them for the recipe.) 1 1/4 cup water 1 1/2 tablespoon sugar 1 tablespoon soy sauce Green onion, chopped diagonally Flat parsley, chopped Kamaboko (steamed fish cake), sliced diagonally 1 egg 1. Preparing Mushrooms: On medium-high heat, place the mushrooms into a small saucepan with the 1 1/4 cups of water. As the water boils, use a spoon to skim the foam. Once boiling, cover the water with a square piece of paper towel, place the lid on, and reduce the heat to low to prevent bubbling over. Cook for 20 minutes before stirring in sugar, gently lifting and reapplying the paper towel to do so. Cook for an additional 7 minutes. Add in soy sauce, and keep the mushrooms on low heat until the water in the saucepan has almost evaporated completely. Then turn off the burner and allow the mushrooms to sit in the saucepan until cool, absorbing the remaining liquid. To Make The Broth: 1 bag of fresh (or frozen) udon noodles 1 1/2 cups water 2/3 teaspoon dashi soup base 1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce 1 1/2 tablespoons mirin 1. Drop the udon noodles into a medium-sized saucepan of boiling water. After 25-30 seconds, separate the noodles with cooking chopsticks and drain them with a colander. Let them immediately soak in a shallow bowl of ice water, then set them aside in a dry bowl while creating the broth. 2. Add the 1 1/2 cups of water to a small saucepan or ceramic cooking pot, setting the burner to medium-high. Lightly stir in dashi base, soy sauce, and mirin. 3. Drop in the udon noodles. If you are not using a ceramic cooking pot, let the udon noodles cook in the bowl for about a minute before transferring it into a large soup bowl. 4. Add the ingredients to the bowl, keeping in mind that the pride of a bowl of Japanese udon noodles is having a beautiful presentation! Add the slices of kamaboko, the shiitake mushrooms, and chopped green onion. While still freshly hot, crack an egg into the bowl of soup and sprinkle on the flat parsley. Finally, lay the shrimp tempura across the soup. Enjoy!

Make A Fist. Then Read This Card.
So I just learned about something cool today called Kobushi Shindan. Have any of you heard about it? Kobushi Shindan (literally, 'fist analysis' in Japanese) is an ancient samurai personality test. All you need to do to take it is make a fist! So make a fist, any fist, and find out what your personal fist form says about you! Fist #1: Your thumb rests on your index finger. People with this fist shape tend to be natural leaders. You like helping others and, likewise, appreciate being leaned on for support. However, despite a strong exterior, you have the tendency to be a bit insecure. In relationships, you are extremely devoted and expect that same kind of loyalty in return. You put others before yourself, and since you're not necessarily good at words, you put that love into compassionate action. Fist #2: Your thumb rests in the middle of your fist. You're a free-spirit with a wide range of talents and plenty of friends. However, you tend to be afraid to try new things because you fear failure. And despite the fact you have a wide group of friends, the amount of friends you consider close is considerably smaller. In love, that fear of failure makes it hard for you to begin romantic relationships, but because of your kind and sociable nature, you're a pretty attractable potential mate! Fist #3: You tuck your thumb underneath fingers. You're much more introverted than the other two personality types. You're a sensitive and private person, and while you don't have a huge social network, the few friends you do have are extremely close and loyal to you. You hate conflict and tend to internalize your feelings, but your compromising nature makes you very attentive in your romantic relationships, which tends to make them pretty long-term. So which fist did you guys get? Do you think Kobushi Shindan has got you all figured out, or are there some things you disagree with?
The True Lives Of First Generation Kids
I've been wanting to write a card about this for a while because I feel like this is a really unique experience that, at the same time, a lot of people can relate to. My mom was born in the Middle East, raised in Mexico, and moved to New York City when she was a young girl. Because of this, she had a really different way of raising us than maybe the 'normal' American parent would, and I don't think I really understood why I felt so weird and different growing up until I could look back at the whole experience and realize - hey, I'm a first generation. My favorite show on television right now is 'Fresh Off The Boat', a loosely biographical comedy based on the life of celebrity restaurateur Eddie Huang and his childhood as a first generation Taiwanese American. The Huangs might be from Taiwan, but I feel like the things they experience and the way that they handle situations are so reminiscent of anyone who comes from a similar family situation. Inspired by that show, and facets of my own life, I figured I'd put together a list of ABSOLUTELY TRUE (AND TRULY HILARIOUS) experiences first-generation kids deal with when growing up. Granted, many of these are my own experiences and might not be true for all first generation kids. However, I hope you all get a laugh! Your grandparents don't speak English - and taught you all the best insults in the language they DO speak. Okay, maybe Teta (aka 'Grandma') didn't want me to know how to call people sloppy, dumb, and fat in Arabic, but she talked so much Middle Eastern smack that those are some of the only words I know. You never get to eat the cafeteria lunch - just whatever was left over from last night's dinner. There's nothing quite like trying to explain to the other kids at the table what falafel is. (Not many 4th graders have come across it before, and don't realize that they'll be devouring them by the dozen when they become the 'trendy' foreign food 15 years later.) You have so many cousins that family photos require the panorama feature. So you've got your first cousins, your second cousins, your third cousins once removed, the cousin who is a cousin of your other cousin (which also makes you cousins, according to your mom), and the cousins who aren't actually cousins but are so close to your family they're treated just the same. Your mom isn't saying you have to marry someone of the same background, but she isn't NOT saying that. Just like she's not telling you that your wedding ceremony has to be in your family's church/mosque/temple/religious center of choice and that you must give her lots of small, chubby, adorable grandbabies. You have to warn your non-ethnic friends about your family before they show up to a party. Take your shoes off, sample the hummus, and I apologize in advance that no one on my mom's side knows how to pronounce the 't' in 'Courtney'. (You guys, my uncles paid for a bellydancer to show up to our Fathers' Day party one year. I cannot make this up.) You have an uncle that pushes alcohol on everyone even though half of your cousins are still in high school. Here's looking at you, Uncle Alfif. (Or as we say in my family - Alcoholic Al.) And your parents aren't really fans of the fact you never tried learning 'the language'. Why do I need to learn how to speak a language I'm only going to be able to use when I'm talking to old people at family functions? I already learned all the good words from my bilingual cousins anyway. Are you a first generation American kid who has their own stories? Let me know in the comments below!
Working in the Anime Industry: A Struggle
The Japanese Animation Creators Association just recently released the results of a survey taken in 2015 of over 750 different people working in the Anime industry in Japan. Coming from an American standpoint, where our entertainers are paid staggering amounts of money, you might think it would be similar for Anime creators, considering how popular the medium is. You'd be wrong. Here's a collected set of averages from Kotaku that shows the median salary for each different position in the creation of anime. Series Director Average Age: 42 years old Average Monthly Salary: 540,833 yen ($5,036) Average Yearly Salary: 6,490,000 yen ($60,437) Chief Animation Director Average Age: 43 years old Average Monthly Salary: 470,000 yen ($4,378) Average Yearly Salary: 5,640,000 yen ($52,521) Producer Average Age: 39 years old Average Monthly Salary: 451,667 yen ($4,206) Average Yearly Salary: 5,420,000 yen ($50,471) Character Designer Average Age: 38 years old Average Monthly Salary: 425,000 yen ($3,958) Average Yearly Salary: 5,100,000 yen ($47,491) Animation Director Average Age: 38 years old Average Monthly Salary: 327,500 yen ($3,045) Average Yearly Salary: 3,930,000 yen ($36,602) 3DCG Animator Average Age: 34 years old Average Monthly Salary: 320,000 yen ($2,980) Average Yearly Salary: 3,840,000 yen ($35,764) Episode Director Average Age: 41 years old Average Monthly Salary: 316,667 yen ($2,949) Average Yearly Salary: 3,800,000 yen ($35,391) Storyboarder Average Age: 49 years old Average Monthly Salary: 310,000 yen ($2,887) Average Yearly Salary: 3,720,000 yen ($34,647) Art Director (Background Art) Average Age: 35 years old Average Monthly Salary: 285,000 yen ($2,655) Average Yearly Salary: 3,420,000 yen ($31,864) Color Designer Average Age: 38 years old Average Monthly Salary: 278,333 yen ($2,593) Average Yearly Salary: 3,340,000 yen ($31,120) Cinematographer Average Age: 34 years old Average Monthly Salary: 265,833 yen ($2,476) Average Yearly Salary: 3,190,000 yen ($29,723) Production Assistant Average Age: 30 years old Average Monthly Salary: 257,000 yen ($2,394) Average Yearly Salary: 3,090,000 yen ($28,788) Key Animator Average Age: 36 years old Average Monthly Salary: 235,000 yen ($2,189) Average Yearly Salary: 2,820,000 yen ($26,271) Inbetween Checker Average Age: 35 years old Average Monthly Salary: 217,500 yen ($2,026) Average Yearly Salary: 2,610,000 yen ($24,314) Layout Artist/Rough Keyart Average Age: 38 years old Average Monthly Salary: 195,000 yen ($1,817) Average Yearly Salary: 2,340,000 yen ($21,800) Paint Staff Average Age: 26 years old Average Monthly Salary: 162,000 yen ($1,509) Average Yearly Salary: 1,950,000 yen ($18,167) 2nd Key Animation/Clean-Up Average Age: 27 years old Average Monthly Salary: 93,333 yen ($870) Average Yearly Salary: 1,120,000 yen ($10,434) Inbetween Staff Average Age: 24 years old Average Monthly Salary: 92,500 yen ($862) Average Yearly Salary: 1,110,000 yen ($10,340) The people at the top of the pyramid make the most; that's something we can understand universally. However, even at the highest salary, the numbers still pale in comparison to what series directors would be receiving here in the States. It only gets more depressing as you go down the list, where some of these positions mean that these employees are making less than minimum wage. Considering the amount of work and pressure these people are under, it's a little disheartening to see how little they earn for their efforts. So, maybe rethink your foray into the industry for now...
Diabetic Foot? What are the precautions to avoid amputation?
Why Diabetic foot care is important? I have heard many diabetic people told that they have removed a finger from their feet. There will be a blood circulation issue and nerve injury if diabetic levels are out of control. Your foot would experience issues as a result. Peripheral neuropathy, which causes loss of foot sensation, is common among diabetics. We can’t imagine losing any body part. Isn’t? Keeping your blood sugar levels in check and taking care of our body is therefore essential. Okay, how can we prevent harm to our feet before it happens? Why diabetes is affecting the foot? Two problems mainly affect diabetic patients’ feet. 1. Peripheral Vascular disease Diabetics are frequently impacted by this illness. Blood vessel narrowing is the cause of it. As a result, the blood supply to the arms, legs, brain, and other areas of the body is disrupted. It mostly affects the legs and feet. Leg discomfort, numbness, or cramps may be the only symptoms at first. When it progresses, patients can have pain while at rest. You could get foot wounds that are infected and cause you to need to have your toes or foot amputated. Even legs may need to be amputated on occasion. 2. Diabetic Neuropathy Your nerves will be harmed by diabetes if you have it for an extended period. If the nerves in your feet are injured, you will lose the feeling sense and be unable to feel heat, cold, or pain there. It is known as “sensory diabetic neuropathy” when a person lacks feeling. Due to neuropathy, a cut or sore on your foot could worsen and infect if you are unable to feel it. Your foot’s muscles may not function properly because the nerves that supply them with signals are damaged. There could be an improper alignment of the foot and more pressure on a specific area of the foot. Why do you need diabetic foot care? What are the associated problems? Here are some of the problems associated with diabetic foot. 1. Foot ulcers Foot ulcers are common in people having uncontrolled diabetes. Ulcers develop as skin tissue deteriorates and exposes the layers below. They can affect your feet down to the bones and are most common under your big toes and on the balls of your feet. 2. Corns Corn is a tough skin that typically grows between or close to a toe’s bones. It is created as a result of toe-to-toe friction. You can use a pumice stone to remove that tissue. Never cut or pluck with a sharp object. You can provide hot and cold soaks simultaneously. 3. Calluses It is also tough skin that is typically found on the sole. They result from unequal weight distribution, bad footwear, or any skin condition. Put padded insoles and pads in your shoes. Calluses can soften with medication. Avoid attempting to cut or scrape the callus off using a sharp object. 4. Blisters Blisters are formed because of the friction caused by shoes on the same spot of the foot. You should use proper diabetic shoes to avoid this issue. Apply antibacterial cream to prevent infections. 5. Fungal infections Fungal infections may discolor your nails. They may become yellow or brown. It may appear thick & brittle. Do not expose your feet to wetness for long period. It may trigger fungal growth. You should follow the doctor’s advice and take medicines. In some cases, you need to remove the damaged nail. 6. Dry & cracked foot skin You may have cracked skin on your feet as a result of the excessive dryness. The bacteria might make it their home and may cause athlete’s foot(fungus causing cracks, redness, and itching). Keep your foot wet by applying the appropriate moisturizer. Apply moisturizer outside the toe gaps. 7. BUnions A bunion, a painful bony bulge on the outside of the big toe, can be brought on by pressure from the way you walk or the form of your foot. Long durations of standing and wearing narrow shoes might exacerbate bunion pain. You might require surgery if bunion pads, toe spacers, and better-fitting shoes are ineffective. 8. Ingrown toenails Ingrown toenails are a frequent problem where the toenail’s corner or side grows into tender flesh. Pain, swollen, irritated skin, and occasionally an infection are the consequences. Usually, the big toe is impacted by ingrown toenails. You run a higher chance of developing ingrown toenail issues if you have diabetes or another illness that reduces blood flow to your feet. 9. Amputation People with diabetes are more prone to have a foot injury and be unaware of it until an infection has set in due to issues with blood flow and nerves. Amputation is frequently the best course of action when an infection cannot be cured, results in an infection, or when poor blood flow causes gangrene(bodily tissue death brought on by a significant bacterial infection or a lack of blood supply). SEE MORE ASSOCIATED FOOT ISSUES Diabetic foot care tips to avoid amputation 1. Manage your blood sugar levels People who have already undergone one amputation are more likely to experience another. You can reduce the risk of developing further diabetes complications by eating well, exercising frequently, managing your blood sugar, and giving up tobacco. Without sugar control, you cannot escape from branched complications. 2. Consult your doctor for a foot checkup For diabetic individuals, routine blood tests are commonplace. Ask your doctor to check your feet while you show him the reports. Use this routine to stop any serious issues from developing in the event of high blood sugar. 3. Check your feet every day Check your feet every day when taking a bath to see if you have any cuts, edema, or nail issues. Patients with high blood sugar levels won’t feel the discomfort from cuts and blisters since they will lose their ability to feel their feet. Therefore, you must regularly check your feet. Consult your doctor if there is a problem and take his instructions. 4. Wash your feet with warm water Always keep your feet clean. After coming home from the outdoors, wash your feet with warm water. As your feet cannot sense too much heat, check for water temperature before washing your feet. 5. Use mild soap and sponge wash your legs using mild soap or shampoo using a soft sponge. Daily foot care will result in softer, smoother, and problem-free skin. If not, you risk developing corns, warts, calluses, swollen feet, and aching, and burning feet, among other foot problems. 6. Pat your feet properly Dry your feet with a clean, dry towel after washing. Drying the spaces in between your toes can help stave off fungus infections. Give your feet a gently pat rather than rubbing to prevent irritations. 7. Proper care for nails If you need to cut your nails, do it when your nails are wet and smooth. It allows you to cut the nails easily. Do not cut them too short and cut them straight to avoid ingrown toenails. Use an emery board to get nail edges smooth. 8. Use good moisturizer Most diabetic patients have dry foot issues. It is due to the inability of your body to produce enough moisturizer for your foot because of nerve damage. Use a good moisturizer, lotion, oil, or petroleum jelly to smoother your dry foot. It can help you to get relief from itching, or cracking. But do not apply moisturize the areas between your toes. It may lead to fungal growth. 9. Wear Socks while sleeping Diabetes patients run the risk of developing circulation issues, which can lead to chilly hands or feet. Frequent blood sugar elevations can induce artery narrowing and a decreased blood supply to the tissues, which can result in cold feet. So wear dry, clean, diabetic socks while sleeping to avoid your feet getting cold at night. 10. Choose proper diabetic socks Try to use diabetic socks rather than regular socks. Why wear diabetic socks? It helps to cushion your feet by reducing friction and thus preventing blisters and ulcers. Gives little compression which aids in good blood circulation. The material is breathable and lightweight. It does not squeeze the feet. Designed to suit diabetic people 11. Do not pluck the corns by yourself Diabetes patients are more likely to develop corns and calluses if they neglect their feet. Avoid making the error of picking them by yourself. Rough handling could result in serious issues because diabetics’ wounds don’t heal in a matter of days. Always seek medical advice and follow recommended procedures. 12. Never walk without shoes or slippers READ MORE
