Hokkai Christmas box
This month we launched the Hokkai Christmas Box. This box contains eight exclusive Japanese fish products to prepare a four course dinner for four people. With the included recipes from our Chef Ohtawara, you present a culinary Christmas dinner! We will also give you a very special Christmas present this year. You can order the Hokkai Christmas box until 6 December.
Interview with RTL Nieuws
Dutch news channel RTL Nieuws came to visit IJmuiden to discover and share the story of Marinus and Hokkai Suisan. It resulted in a beautiful article that describes Hokkai’s path: from selling fish from the trunk to the international Japanese fish shop that Hokkai is today.
Every year, culinary expert Alain Caron invites a chef to cook at his Café Caron in Amsterdam. This year it was the honour of our own chef Kuniyoshi Ohtawara, together with Rolando, Etienne and the Caron team. They served a culinary five-course dinner, including Sake Nanban (salmon belly), the sashimi cocktail (chef Ohtawara’s signature dish) and Buri Kama (jaw of king fish). The Hokkai team was honoured to delight the guests with these Japanese dishes.
Hokkai Recipe: Fish snack platter
With the holiday season approaching, we thought it was time again for a delicious Japanese snack platter. We chose five different appetizers, namely Smoked Salmon, Kakiage (tempura), Saba no Tatsutaage (mackerel appetizers), Hotate-fry (breaded scallops) and Edamame (Japanese soy beans).
