2013.04.12 : Grilled cabbage rolls

These take a bit of time to make, but they’re really great, especially if you were to take them with you for like, lunch or something. They’re also really great for hot summer nights or when you just want something really light.

Sakamoto Masayuki’s Grilled Cabbage Rolls
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Japanese
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2 servings
  • Cabbage - 1 head (2 leaves (finely chopped), 4 leaves (intact))
  • Onion - ¼ (thinly sliced)
  • Garlic - 1 (centre removed)
  • Mushrooms - 4 (bottoms (wtf are those called idek i hate mushrooms) chopped off)
  • Salt - to taste
  • Black pepper - to taste
  • Smoked Salmon - 12 pieces
  • Olive oil - appropriate amount (to coat the bottom of pan)
  • Cream - 20cc (.6oz)
  • Mustard - 1tbsp
  • Dill - appropriate amount (a couple things of it)
  1. Finely chop a couple leaves of the cabbage
  2. On top of that, stack mushrooms, garlic, and onions
  3. Add a pinch or two of salt to it
  4. Stack the 4 intact leaves on top of that, cover with saran wrap
  5. Cook in a 600w microwave for 5 minutes (honestly, I’d just boil the cabbage leaves before you chop them up and fry up the mushrooms and onions and garlic before adding them to the mixture, but I’m Irish-American and all I know how to do with cabbage is boil the shit out of it. You want the cabbage leaves to be malleable enough to be able to roll shit in them and boiling them woud achieve the same purpose. But that’s me.)
  6. Pat the leaves with a paper towel to remove excess moisture
  7. Slice off the core of the cabbage (part of the main vein or whatever of the cabbage to get it to be flatter, basically), finely chop it, and add it to the previous mixture
  8. Season with lots of pepper
  9. Flatten the veins of the cabbage leaves with the butt of your knife
  10. Stack 3 pieces of salmon on top of the leaves
  11. Add the veggies
  12. Roll (like you would a burrito)
  13. Add olive oil to the pan
  14. Cook until appropriately grilled, remove from heat and set aside
  15. Add cream to the same pan
  16. Add mustard and mix until incorporated
  17. Add in leaves of dill, mix in
  18. Coat bottom of plate with sauce, stack with cabbage rolls
  19. Enjoy!
