Ochazuke – お茶漬け

Ochazuke is an iconic Japanese rice and green tea recipe. Make it at home in a flash!




  1. Sprinkle salt on both sides of the salmon filet and transfer to a cooking tray covered with parchment paper.
  2. Turn the oven to broil and move the oven rack to the highest position. Broil the salmon for 10-12 minutes, until cooked through. Use a fork or chopsticks to break the salmon into small flakes.
  3. Put the rice in a bowl and pour enough green tea to cover 3/4 of the rice.
  4. Add all the toppings and serve immediately. 


For dashi based ochazuke, use 1 cup of dashi instead of green tea and stir in a dash of soy sauce and mirin (about 1/2 teaspoon each), and a sprinkle of salt.
