Salmon Chazuke (Green Tea Rice Soup)

Chazuke is a Japanese dish made by pouring green tea, dashi or hot water over cooked rice. Chazuke is popular as a quick-fix dish at home, but is also served at upscale restaurants. This recipe uses salmon, but you can use any topping as you like.

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 2 filets salmon (approx. 3 oz. each)
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 cups cooked rice (short or medium grain white rice) (click here)
  • 1/2 sheet nori seaweed
  • 2 shiso leaves (perilla) or basil
  • 1 tsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. wasabi paste
  • 1 Tbsp. green tea leaves
  • 2-1/2 cups hot water (175°F)

Season salmon filets with salt. Preheat the Gourmet Roaster for 5 minutes. Roast salmon for 8 minutes or until surface is lightly browned. Carefully remove the skin and bones and break the salmon up into flakes using two forks.



Place cooked rice in a strainer and rinse with hot water to remove excess starch. Drain the rice well.


Shred nori seaweed and shiso leaves.


In two serving bowls, place rice, salmon flakes and drizzle soy sauce. Top with nori seaweed, shiso leaves and wasabi paste


Brew green tea and pour around the inside edge of bowls to help topping keep its shape. Serve immediately.
