Japanese Breakfast


Growing up, this was breakfast for me!  The whole shabang with the toasted salmon, Japanese sausage, and miso soup!  Of course back then, there was a bowl of rice in this picture but now being low-carb/keto, that’s the 1st thing to go!  So instead now, we replaced that with the avocados but aside from that, it’s a pretty standard Japanese breakfast.

And whenever I serve this Japanese breakfast to our guests, they always express how it probably took a long time to prepare.  When you do look at the pictures, it does look like there’s a lot of work, but really, it isn’t bad at all.  It actually takes me the same amount of time to make an ‘American’ breakfast with bacon, eggs and maybe breakfast chaffle

So next time your in the mood to change up your normal breakfast, don’t be intimated and give this style low-carb/keto Japanese Breakfast a try!  It’s packed with so many goodies to get your morning started right and delicious all at the same time!

This dish would be labeled low-carb/keto approved with only has 5g carbs and 30-35g of protein.  It is packed with omegas and fats that would really benefit someone who is low-carb/keto. 

It’s packed with all the goodies and flavors that you’d expect from a Japanese cuisine.  A little bit of everything all mixed in to give you a nice balanced meal to start off your day!

You’ll need access to a Japanese/Asian supermarket to make exactly as illustrated.  If there’s no access for you nearby, I suggest substitution as:

Japanese Sausage -> Bacon (no mayo needed)

Asian Style Salmon Fillet (the portion that has belly meat) ->  Salmon Steak with belly meat cut in half (lightly salted)

These substitutions will still keep the theme of a traditional Japanese breakfast while making it accessible to most people.

You’ll also need to pick up some Bonito Flakes, Tofu, Miso, Soy Sauce and Kewpie Mayo, all which can be purchased on Amazon or a local Asian supermarket. 

Now, let’s get started!

6) Place Miso in a strainer and dissolve Miso into dashi.  Note – do not boil the Miso otherwise it’ll lose the ‘umami’ and get very condensed.
