Good Japanese recipes for novice cook?

speakhandsforme | Dec 28, 2013 12:30 AM

I am young (21) and still relatively inexperienced in the kitchen. I have gotten fairly good at things that may seem fancy to a non-CH but really only involve simple ingredients: think smitten kitchen's ratatouille on crusty bread, with chevre and a poached egg. Chicken piccata with the deglazed pan sauce. A perfectly cooked steak. This week while I have some free time before the next semester starts, I'll probably try my hand at baking a simple yeast bread of some kind from scratch.

Things with more complicated recipes and ingredient lists scare me a little more. My attempts at Indian food haven't been spectacular. But there's a new guy who likes Japanese and I'd like to know if there are any recipes that seem doable for someone of my skill level that could still wow him. I should say that a stir-fry is not beyond the realm of possibility but is there anything else?
