Taco rice: the wondrous fusion of two of the world’s culinary super-powers, Mexico and Japan. This dish has it’s origins in post-war Okinawa where chefs prepared the dish to suit the palate of the U.S. soldiers. It’s a quick and delicious midweek meal for the whole family. This cracking version was found in Gourmet Traveller.

1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp sweet paprika
1½ tbsp minced peeled fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, finely chopped

50 ml rice vinegar
1 tbsp mirin
1 tbsp soy sauce
