Tamago dofu

Egg custard. たまごどうふう、卵豆腐

Literally ”egg tofu," but this dish does not contain tofu - it is only named so because it reminds one of a block of tofu. It is a savory egg custard made with dashi. It is normally served chilled. The sauce can be soy sauce thinned with dashi, or, as here, a yuzu sauce. The green on top of the custard are mitsuba leaves.

This dish is a refreshing summer appetizer. Can be made at home but also bought in the supermarket.
