Story Behind this Recipe
I often make ohitashi - a cold side dish of cooked vegetables, seaweed, seafood etc. I wanted to try a different version from my usual repertoire.
Blanch the spinach for about 1 minute. Shock in chilled water immediately, then squeeze out the excess water so that the spinach retains some of its texture. This dish is best when chilled before serving. Adjust the amount of ginger to taste.
