4. Heat your pan and brush with oil on both sides. Once the pan is hot, decrease the heat to low. Pour 1 to 2 tbsp batter on the pan, cook the cone until nicely browned on both sides, flipping occasionaly.
5. Immediately move to your countertop to shape the cone. Form into a cone while it's hot, squeezing the end to seal. Repeat for the next.
1. In a cooking pot, add the uncooked Japanese rice and soak it in water for about 20 min.

3. After soaking the rice, drain well and transfer to a cooking pot. Add 400ml water. Cover and cook over high heat, then bring it to a boil.
4. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Mix once then cover again and simmer for 10 minutes.
5.meanwhile prepare the fish
Wash the fish and drain with a kitchen towel. Place on a tray or plate. Sprinkle kosher salt (1 tsp) and coat well on both sides (make sure no bones are left in the middle). Leave 10 to 15 minutes.
6. After 10 min simmering, remove the rice from the heat. Leave another 10 minutes but do not lift the cover yet. Then transfer into a moistened heat-safe bowl (or sushi "oke"). Pour the sushi vinegar on it in one go. Slice the rice and let it cool down. Cover and set aside.
7. Now wipe the fish's excess salt with a kitchen towel. Add oil (1 tsp) on a frying-pan and heat over medium heat. Wipe any excess oil. Place the filets skin side down. Cook for about 4 minutes. Then flip them gently and cook another 3 to 4 minutes. Set aside.
8. _ Prepare the sauce for the fish_
Add all the sauce for fish ingredients into a cooking pot. Cook over medium heat and bring it to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 1 min. Set aside.
9. _ Putting the sushi together_
Place a nori (shiny side down) on your sushi rolling mat. Spread 1/4 sushi rice evenly, leaving a space of about 2cm uncovered along the edge. Cover the rice with saran wrap and flip. Roll up tightly, while removing the saran wrap at the same time.
10. Once rolled up, sprinkle some scallion and place the fish. Brush with the sauce. Wrap with saran wrap tightly. Set aside and repeat for the 3 other rolls.
11. Cut the sushi roll and clean your knife each time you finish a slice. Note : Keep the saran wrap when you cut the sushi. Remove it when the slicing is done.
12. Place the sliced sushi and add more sauce if you like.
1.Making Genmai Wash the rice and drain it. In a frying-pan (no oil), add the rice and cook for 1~2 minutes over medium heat. Then add water (2tbsp). Keep cooking until nicely browned. Once it turns brown, then reduce the heat to low. Set aside.
2. In a cooking bowl, add flour, salt, malt powder (optional), yeast and the genmai you just made in #1. Mix well. Add water and mix with a spatula until it comes together. Cover with saran wrap and leave 15 minutes.
3. After 15 min, mix about 1 min with a spatula. Cover and let sit for 15 minutes.
4. After 15 min, mix a few times (about 20 sec). Finally cover and let rise in a warm place for a few hours or until it doubles in size.
5. Dust the work surface with a bit of flour, then put the dough on it. Split it in 2 halves. Cover and let them rest 10~15 min.
6. With the first half, using your hand, stretch the dough into a small (approximately) rectangular shape. Fold both sides length-wise over the centreline. Then fold again in the same way making sure you close the seam well (along the centreline). With the seam side down, roll the dough into a 30~35 cm long slender loaf. You can hold it vertically to help stretch it and take shape too.
7. Transfer the baguette to a floured cloth, seam side down to rest. When bough baguette doughs are done, lift up the cloth between the 2 baguettes into a pleat. It will help the dough hold its shape. Let it rise for about 40min (or more) in a warm place or until it about doubles in size (the volume increase actually depends on the temperature).
8. Pre-heat the oven to 240℃ degree.
9. Once the baguettes have risen, gently transfer them onto a parchment-lined baking sheet (seam side down). Slash cut each baguette 3 or 4 times (at a 45 degree angle) along its length, using a baker's lame, razor blade or a very sharp knife.
10. Mist lightly with water and put the baguette into the oven. Bake for about 15 minutes.
11. Remove from the oven and let it cool down on a wire rack.
In a bowl add flour, salt and mix well. Add the water then knead with your hand gently. Once the dough starts to be like crumbles, add vegetable oil. Knead until the dough comes together in a ball.
2. Transfer to a working surface, and knead by hand for 3 minutes. Then cover with saran wrap and let sit for 1 hour.
3. _Making the aspic (in advance, maybe a day before?)
In a small heat-safe cup, add gelatin and water. Mix. Set it aside.
4. In a cooking pot add water, green parts of a leek, ginger and bring it to a boil. Once it boils, add chinese chicken bouillon powder, oyster sauce and mix. Remove from the heat. Strain the soup into a heat-safe plate and let it cool a little to 55~60℃.
5. Add the soaked gelatin and dissolve it completely. Let it to cool to room temperature, and then chill in the fridge until firm.
6.Making the filling
In your food processor, add pork belly and process until minced. Add the ground pork and process until combined well.
7. Add cooking sake, water, sesame oil, fresh ginger, green long onion, lard, a dash of salt and sugar. Pulse until the pork turns into a paste. Transfer the meat mixture into a bowl. Cover it and keep it in the fridge if your aspic is not ready.
8. Take out the aspic from the fridge and transfer it to the food processor. Pulse for a few seconds. Add the diced aspic to the pork mixture. Mix well. Cover and chill for now.
9.Making the wrap
Take some of the dough and feed 1 to 2 times in position 1 of the Kitchenaid Pasta Roller. Change to position 2 or 3 and feed 1 to 2 times. Change to position 5 or 6 and feed 1 or 2 times. Finally change to position 8 (thinnest) and feed 1 or 2 times.
10. Cut the dough with a ring (I used a 9cm diameter one). Transfer to a lightly floured plate (Keep the excess dough to make more wrappers at the end). 1 wrapper is about 8 to 9g, so if you don't use the pasta roller, take about 9g of dough & roll it directly into a disc shape with a rolling pin.
11. Place some filling in the middle of a wrapper. Pleats the wrapper's edge with as many folds as you can :) (Pulling the edges make them thinner).
12. Prepare the steamer: place a cloth or a parchment paper with holes. Place the dumplings. Steam for about 8 minutes.
13. Meanwhile make the dipping sauce. In a small cup, add 2 tsp soy sauce and 3 tsp rice or apple cider vinegar. Mix. Place some fresh ginger, it's nice.
