This recipe is great with walleye and many other fishes, even boneless skinless chicken breasts will work! A lot of folks are afraid of cooking fish – and living here in land-locked Colorado, I guess I can understand.  When I was a kid, either we’d catch trout or eat fish sticks – but things have…

  Teppan is a flat iron grill, yaki is grilling – and eating teppanyaki is a special Japanese treat!  If you’ve been to Benihana or Gasho’s, you’ve had teppanyaki – but it gets pretty fancy in Japan.  Today we are having the Teppan Hamburger Lunch special at XEX – one of Chef Masaharu Morimoto-san’s (of…
