Today it will be special! I admit, it is a provocative headline. At best, this potato salad recipe audacity has caused your click on this post. Thanks for that already, it’s worth it!
What I serve you today is an exciting, culinary and intercultural event: I have prepared our good German potato salad with Japanese ingredients. For this I was able to put real Bavarian salad potatoes from farmer Laura Butz from Ergolding in the pot and combine Thai basil, sushi vinegar, soy sauce and colorful sesame with flavor from Chefino.de. Of course, this contribution is a CCC – Continuous cooking commercial.
The origin of the ingredients: The farmer Mrs. Butz contacted me a few days ago with the request to help her sell 10 tons of Selma potatoes. Mrs. Oosting and Mr. Oosting are specialists in Japanese food from Food Connection, who now also run the online store Chefino.de. They have been supplying me with the best delicacies and spices from Japan for some time.
What can become of this combination, you will learn in the following instructions. Get ready for an exciting “palate angel singing” taste experience! The salad is currently with us the all-time favorite, it unites the nations of the world. Let yourself be tempted to cook it yourself. Good luck!

|10||pc||Potatoes (I use the variety Selma)|
|Salt (Himalayan salt or primal salt)|
|100||ml||Sushi Vinegar (Sushi seasoning vinegar from Chefino.de)|
|1/2||pc||Chili pepper (red)|
Dekoration und Beigaben
|10-20||g||Sesam Furikake (Colorful sesame seeds from the cooking box)|
|2-4||pinches||Kizami Nori seaweed (From Chefino.de)|
Cook potatoes in salted water until soft, drain, let steam off and peel while lukewarm.
Provide all the ingredients in the kitchen.
Mix sesame furikake in the flavor yuzu, ume plums, kimchi and wasabi in a bowl in equal quantities. You can order the colorful sesame cooking box directly online.
Sushi vinegar and soy sauce ready. For the salad, white soy sauce is better, because the color of the salad does not change negatively.
Prepare marinade: Mix sushi vinegar with water in the ratio 1:1, add chili without seeds coarsely or finely chopped, stir in sugar and season with a little pepper.
Put the Kizami Nori seaweed in a bowl ready and pack the remaining seaweed again well. The seaweed must not get wet and is added to the salad only at the end.
Provide some Thai basil. You can pluck the leaves finely or large or cut some leaves finely streaky.
You can see the prepared ingredients in the overview on this picture.
Cut the peeled potatoes into 2-3 mm thick halved or whole slices.
Pour the marinade over the potato slices in the bowl. Cut the cress and mix. Add Thai basil leaves and let stand for 5 minutes.
Mix salad with sesame seeds just before serving and bring to the plate. Add Thai basil leaves with the Kizami Nori seaweed strips decoratively and serve quickly. Enjoy your meal!
Note On Seasoning:
You can season the potato salad more with sushi vinegar. After several attempts, I have never needed more than the amount specified in the recipe. Normally, the potato salad after a short time in the taste always decreases a little. Therefore, we cooks taste it again with salt just before serving. This salad does not need that. Through the soy sauce and sushi vinegar comes the 5th flavor in the salad we know as umami.
Note On Umami:
The Japanese term umami refers to the taste apart from the usual four flavors of sweet, salty, sour and bitter. The taste is described as hearty-intense and powerful.
