In this episode chef Rika Yukimasa and Patrick Harlan make Japanese-style fried meatballs. Rika's mother taught her this unique recipe, where instead of stewing them, the meatballs are fried. By pre-heating onions in the microwave, their flavor can be integrated into the meat more easily. To add seasoning, she uses soy sauce, ginger, and nutmeg to give the flavor plenty of complexity. They also focus on side dish soups made with ginger, and showing a simple recipe for one of the many different Japanese dishes made with ginger.

In this episode, chef Saito makes simmered kinki fish, considered one of Japan's finest simmered dishes. One distinctive quality of Japan's simmered fish dishes is that they are often cooked gently in a small amount of broth, rather than boiling for a long time in a lot of broth to heavily flavor the fish - even after the fish simmer, they still retain much of their original flavor, with only the outermost layer of the fish being seasoned by the simmering broth. Chef Saito teaches the secrets of great simmered fish prepared this way.

The theme for this episode is "one soup, three dishes," the traditional structure for Japanese meals. The main dish is yellowtail teriyaki, made by cooking deliciously fatty yellowtail with a sweet and savory soy sauce-based sauce that complements it perfectly and goes great with rice. For the side dish, Rika makes a simple daikon radish and cucumber salad with blended vinegar, and the soup is miso soup, full of the rich flavor of mushrooms.
