Hokkai at Home with Kirsten

Hokkai at Home with Kirsten (22) from Rotterdam: ‘As a student and fish lover, I love to cook with the products of Hokkai Suisan. With these products it is very easy to quickly prepare a healthy and delicious meal. Moreover, the flavors bring me straight back to Japan; my favorite holiday destination. After a long day at the university, I made Gindara Saikyozuke (Black Cod in Miso Marinade) for my roommate and myself. Other than that I kept it simple with some eggplant, spring onion and rice. It was superb!’
