Sweet and Succulent Sashimi

I'm sure Cuisine Delight readers will be delighted to know that along Pasay Road in Makati City, there's a dish which is sweet and succulent sashimi. The restaurant is known as Century Tsukiji of Century Park Hotel. Obviously, it's a Japanese-related and inspired restaurant which is using tender and sweet imported meats and seafood. If you happen to be here in the country, it's easy to find sweet and succulent sashimi, Japanese food.

We already know that Japan is known for its overwhelming array of fresh fish, seafood and shellfish. Via airplane, good stuff fresh from Japan arrive in the restaurant everyday. Isn't it amazing? For readers who wants to comment on this post, feel free to do it. I welcome any topic related to the featured restaurant and specific food, sweet and succulent sashimi offered there.

Whole Grain Corn Bread

I'd like to share this whole grain corn bread. I got this recipe from Natural Health Magazine. Whole grain corn flour and buttermilk make this rib-sticking corn bread and healthier choice than the starchy, fatty variety often served at holiday tables. Whole grain corn bread recipe is easy to prepare too.

Whole Grain Corn Bread


1 1/2 cups whole-grain corn flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt (optional)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 cups low-fat buttermilk
1/4 cup canola oil
2 eggs, beaten

Preheat oven to 400 F. Coat an 8-inch square pan with non-stick cooking spray.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine flours, baking powder, seasonings, and honey with a wire whisk. In a small bowl, combine remaining wet ingredients. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. 
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cut into squares to serve.
