Also this spring we are introducing Grilled Asparagus served w. Japanese Pickled Plum and Shiso Vinaigrette.
Pickled plums, umeboshi, are a spring time tradition in Japan. The Plum Tree blossoms first, before the Cherry blossoms arrive, and this really heralds the change of seasons.
Umeboshi is a unique tart taste coupled with Shiso, a Japanese style mint, that works great with the grilled asparagus. Light, healthy, flavorful.
