Fresh Flounder with Spinach with Shiitake Mushrooms and Saute Tofu

There’s nothing like an easy to make, easy to eat, healthy Japanese meal that you can make at home! My sister Kari has been the primary cook at home for our aging parents. Our parents are artists and also opened one of the first Japanese restaurants on Long Island (almost 45 years ago!) so amazing taste and impeccable presentation are not optional.

Our dad has had issues with his teeth for years — he lost most of his teeth, and then lost his dentures. He refuses to get implants so a modified meal is what is required. That is the case for a lot of people. You will be surprised to see how easy this meal is to make and it is super nutritious!

Watch the video below if you want our step by step process. We had a lot of fun making this video. Special thanks to Francisco Aliwalas and Ritsuko Yamaguchi for all their help.
