Here’s a recipe from Nancy Singleton Hachisu, previously featured in How To Eat Like A Japanese Farmer.

Besides curry rice, this is my youngest son Matthew’s favorite dish and he requests it often. Cha means “tea” in Japanese, so chazuke by nature (if not the name alone) signals a dish involving tea (in this case, green tea). But we don’t drink green tea, so it’s not something we have lying around — and typical farming families had drank up their tea at tea break.

Tadaaki makes a light dashi, then flavors it with soy sauce. I prefer the clean taste of salt. Either way, no tea. Also we only use beautifully fresh sashimi-cut fish garnished with the nori and green onion to surprise your tongue. Good for breakfast, a light lunch or a starter before dinner.
