The 4 principal
cooking methods
of Japanese cuisine

More so than any other cuisine, Japanese cuisine is best understood in perspective by knowing its four principal cooking methods:

Agemono

These are fried foods. Famous dishes include Tempura, Kagiage (a batter-dipped, deep-fried patty of vegetables and shrimp), and Tonkatsu (a breaded, deep-fried pork cutlet).

Mushimono

Steamed foods: The celebrated dish is Chawan Mushi, an egg custard containing chicken and vegetables.

Nimono

These foods are boiled. The best-known subcategory is Nabemono, one-pot tabletop cookery in which the ingredients are simmered in a lightly seasoned broth, then usually dipped into a flavorful sauce. Nabemono's best-known dishes are:

Sukiyaki Shabu Shabu

Beef, vegetables, and bean curd

Mizutaki

Somewhat like Shabu Shabu, but with chicken instead of beef

Yosenabe

Fish, shellfish, and vegetables

Yudofo

Uncomplicated bean curd preparation

Yakimono

Foods that are broiled. Some of the best-known dishes are Yakitori (marinated skewer-broiled chicken), Teriyaki (broiled meat or fish first marinated in a sweetened sake and soy-sauce mixture), Shioyaki (fish salted for an hour or two, then skewer-broiled), and Teppan Yaki (food cooked on a small tabletop grill).
