Tai: Red Snapper

Today, Mom brought me many Tai (red snapper).

To celebrate happiness, happy outcomes and congratulate somebody, we use red snapper.

Why…? Because red snapper in Japanese is Tai.

The word to celebrate happiness, happy outcomes and congratulate somebody is Medetai.

There is Tai (red snapper) hidden in the word.

Look there are many Tai!

 

These are ingredients for Ochazuke (rice soup).

Prepare Tai, dashi (stock gelee) and rice.


Pour dashi gelee on rice.


Place a Tai on rice and pour hot water.


Mix.

Quick, simple but delicious!


Then she also brought Osumashi (soup) in Tai.

Pour hot water.


Mix well.


Tai surely made me and my stomach happy!
