The Morimoto Ikura Video

         Morimoto's highly reputable name is due to its succulent food, amazing decor, and its world renowned chefs. Sushi Chef Kwang Kim was kind enough to supply me with vast amounts of information pertaining to his cooking career, personal experiences as well as his knowledge of Ikura. Chef Kim kept the conversation going by sharing stories of his childhood fishing memories with his father and his first experiences as a sushi chef in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He also shared that before working as a sushi chef at Morimoto, he worked and trained at Nobu (another one of Masaharu Morimoto's world renowned sushi restaurants) also in New York City. With regards to the Ikura, Chef Kim stated that the Ikura he uses comes from Japan either packaged or in the actual sac(sujiko). Chef Kim also concocted an incredibly unique marinade that really emphasized the amazing flavor of the Ikura.
