Unwrap this silver ship to discover a secret treasure – delectably soft salmon and veggies, steamed in their own juices to melty perfection!
Tsutsumi-yaki means cooked package. It is most likely based on houshou-yaki, a traditional cooking method in which the main ingredients were wrapped in high-quality washi paper. It would be quite rare to find culinary-grade washi paper in the typical home cook’s kitchen these days however! We wrapped the ingredients in foil and cooked them on the stovetop in a pan half-filled with water, though you could also use the oven.
The tsutsumi-yaki cooking method allows the contents of the package to be steamed, while retaining all of the cooking juices for full flavour and nutrition. And though you can remove the cooked ingredients and drizzle with the cooking juices to serve, we think it’s more fun to present a silver ship to unwrap, and discover the treasures within!
