Ten Japanese-inspired recipes


Japanese-inspired recipes

This week’s Ten at Ten is from Kavita Favelle, author of food and travel blog Kavey Eats. London-based, Kavey shares a wide range of content including recipes, restaurant reviews and food-themed travels in the UK and overseas. Her enduring obsession with Japan drew her to these Japanese-inspired recipes from fellow bloggers.

  • Gary at Big Spud has been a Japanophile many years longer than me! This teriyaki rib eye steak with garlic fried rice was inspired by a dinner we enjoyed at a London teppanyaki restaurant.
  • Kellie at Food to Glow uses white miso, shiitake mushrooms and nori (dried seaweed) to give a Japanese twist to this hearty breakfast skillet.
  • Madeleines may be French but Peter’s long years of travel to Japan inspired these black sesame madeleines on Delicious Delicious Delicious.
  • Like me, Helen at Fuss Free Flavours always has miso in her fridge. Here she creates a herby miso butter to serve with steak or fish.
  • Dannii’s focus on healthy eating is at the heart of her blog Hungry Healthy Happy so it makes perfect sense that she’s replaced white rice with quinoa in this quinoa sushi tutorial.
  • Nazima keeps it classic with her miso soup with tofu, asparagus, cabbage and furikake, posted from her Franglais Kitchen.
  • These Japanese-style marinaded pork from Laura at How To Cook Good Food use high quality British Freedom Food pork.
  • One of my favourite yōshoku dishes (Japanese food originally inspired by Western dishes) is breaded cutlets of pork or chicken known as katsu. Check out Margot at Coffee and Vanilla’s recipe for chicken katsu curry.
  • Bintu’s wild garlic and sesame noodle salad cleverly combines European and Asian ingredients. She gives it a Japanese profile by using shichimi togarashi (a Japanese chilli spice blend).
  • Cooksister Jeanne applies a classic Japanese glaze to create this blackened miso cod using Norwegian skrei.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at bloggers@fleaenterprises.com with any questions or comments.

Thank you!
