Next time you’re craving Japanese food, whether it’s sushi or noodles or curry, stay home and make it yourself! Recipe developer and cookbook author Amy Kaneko’s new book, Let’s Cook Japanese Food, is a collection of recipes that take you through the steps required to make authentic meals at home. Dinner tonight: grilled chicken and onion skewers.

This simple recipe is good with salt (shio yakitori) or with sauce (tare yakitori). You can prepare half the recipe with the salt and half the recipe with the sauce to have the best of both worlds.
