    Ingredients:

    • 4 6-ounce salmon fillets, skin removed (preferably cut narrow and tall, rather than wide and flat)
    • 1 cup sake, for soaking the salmon
    • ½ cup water
    • ¼ cup mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine)
    • ¼ cup light brown sugar
    • ¼ cup soy sauce
    • 1½ tablespoon rice vinegar
    • 2 scallions, chopped

    Instructions:
    Place the salmon in a bowl, cover with sake and soak for 10-15 minutes

    In a separate bowl, add mirin, brown sugar, and soy sauce.

    Stir to dissolve sugar. Transfer the salmon to the marinade for 5 –10 minutes, turning once.

    Meanwhile, place a large non-stick skillet on the stove and heat to medium-high heat.

    Place the salmon fillets in the hot pan – skin side up – and cook for a few minutes until nicely seared and coated with a rich brown glaze. Watch carefully, this happens fast.

    Turn the fillets over, reduce the heat to medium, and add the marinade and water to the pan.

    Cook 3-5 minutes more, until fish reaches desired doneness. Do not overcook.

    If the sauce thickens too fast, just add a bit of water a few tablespoons at a time. Do not burn.

    Transfer salmon fillets to serving platter or plates.

    Cook until sauce is reduced and thickened, then turn off heat.

    Add the rice wine vinegar to the sauce and stir.

    Pour the sauce over salmon fillets, top with scallions and serve.

    Celiac.com 09/24/2015 - We have the Japanese to thank for this bit of deliciousness. Miso paste, mirin, sake and, wait for it…butter, are the magic ingredients in this delightfully easy, ridiculously tasty shrimp dish.
    If you don't keep mirin and sake on hand, you should. They are not expensive, and, together with soy sauce and dried bonito flakes, they form the base of much of Japanese cooking. As for miso paste, well, that and a bit of dash will deliver the best miso soup you've ever had, ever time, so they're good to have on hand, too.
    These shrimp are guaranteed to make a big splash at your next grilling session. Or, you can put them in a hot pan for a few minutes. Either way, you and your guests win!
    Ingredients:
    1 pound raw shrimp, shelled, deveined 2 tablespoons butter, melted 2 tablespoons sake 1 tablespoon mirin 3 teaspoons miso paste Directions:
    In a large bowl, whisk together the butter, miso, mirin and sake until dissolved.
    Add the shrimp and marinate for 10 minutes.
    Cooking on grill: Heat your grill on high heat. Skewer the shrimp onto bamboo skewers. Grill each side for about 2 minutes or until pink and cooked through.

    Celiac.com 10/08/2015 - Want a light, healthy gluten-free vegetarian lunch that's tasty and offers a departure from a more standard noodle dish? Try this lovely Asian-style salad made with spiral or long julienne zucchini "noodles."
    Some people make this with raw zucchini, but that's hard to digest, so I blanche the zucchini noodles first.
    Ingredients:
    3 to 4 medium zucchini, spiral cut or long thin strips 1 cup carrot, grated 2 green onions, thin diagonal slices ½ teaspoon salt 1½ cups thinly sliced and roughly chopped red cabbage ½ large red bell pepper, sliced thin and cut into 1-inch segments ½ cup cilantro, chopped Dressing:
    ⅓ cup rice vinegar seasoned with salt, pepper and sugar 2 tablespoons quality olive oil 1½ teaspoons dark sesame oil 2 cloves garlic, minced Pinch of red pepper flakes Directions:
    If you have a food processor or other spiral vegetable slicing tool, use it to make the zucchini noodles.
    Otherwise, cut zucchini into very long, thin strips, enough to make about 5 to 6 cups of zucchini noodles.
    Place zucchini noodles in a metal strainer and immerse in boiling water for about 30 seconds, until blanched.
    Once lightly blanched, remove the zucchini noodles and allow to drain well.
    Place the drained, blanched zucchini noodles in a large bowl. Add the cabbage, carrot, bell pepper, onions, and cilantro.
    In a medium bowl, whisk seasoned rice vinegar, olive oil, dark sesame oil, minced garlic, and red pepper flakes.
    Pour the dressing over the zucchini noodles and vegetables and gently toss to combine. Or, alternatively, serve dressing on the side.
    Serve immediately.

    Celiac.com 03/01/2016 - If you're looking for an easy, tasty way to serve fish is a great way to go.
    Now, for this dish, you're not looking for the black cod known as Chilean Sea Bass, but for the American version, usually caught in Alaska, that is much more sustainable. So, be sure to talk to your fishmonger if you're not sure.
    Ingredients:
    1 pound Black cod fillets, cut into pieces 1 tablespoon Sugar 1 tablespoon White miso 1 tablespoon Mirin 1 tablespoon Sake 1 large clove garlic, grated 1/2" finger of ginger, grated 3 cloves garlic, minced Directions:
    Mix the sugar, miso, mirin, sake, garlic and ginger in a small bowl.
    Rub this mixture into the cod then cover and refrigerate overnight
    Move the oven rack to the second position from the top and turn the broiler onto the "high" setting.
    Scrape any extra miso off the fillets and place them on a rack on top of a baking sheet, skin side down.
    Put the pan under the broiler and broil until the cod is golden brown on the top side.
    Turn the fillets skin side up, and continue broiling until the skin is lightly charred and crisp.
    If you have thicker fillets, insert a fork into the thickest part of the fillet to see if it's cooked.
    Cook until the meat is opaque and come apart easily. Serve with rice and favorite vegetables.

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.

    Celiac.com 06/18/2018 - Celiac disease has been mainly associated with Caucasian populations in Northern Europe, and their descendants in other countries, but new scientific evidence is beginning to challenge that view. Still, the exact global prevalence of celiac disease remains unknown.  To get better data on that issue, a team of researchers recently conducted a comprehensive review and meta-analysis to get a reasonably accurate estimate the global prevalence of celiac disease. 
    The research team included P Singh, A Arora, TA Strand, DA Leffler, C Catassi, PH Green, CP Kelly, V Ahuja, and GK Makharia. They are variously affiliated with the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Lady Hardinge Medical College, New Delhi, India; Innlandet Hospital Trust, Lillehammer, Norway; Centre for International Health, University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway; Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Gastroenterology Research and Development, Takeda Pharmaceuticals Inc, Cambridge, MA; Department of Pediatrics, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy; Department of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; USA Celiac Disease Center, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; and the Department of Gastroenterology and Human Nutrition, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.
    For their review, the team searched Medline, PubMed, and EMBASE for the keywords ‘celiac disease,’ ‘celiac,’ ‘tissue transglutaminase antibody,’ ‘anti-endomysium antibody,’ ‘endomysial antibody,’ and ‘prevalence’ for studies published from January 1991 through March 2016. 
    The team cross-referenced each article with the words ‘Asia,’ ‘Europe,’ ‘Africa,’ ‘South America,’ ‘North America,’ and ‘Australia.’ They defined celiac diagnosis based on European Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition guidelines. The team used 96 articles of 3,843 articles in their final analysis.
    Overall global prevalence of celiac disease was 1.4% in 275,818 individuals, based on positive blood tests for anti-tissue transglutaminase and/or anti-endomysial antibodies. The pooled global prevalence of biopsy-confirmed celiac disease was 0.7% in 138,792 individuals. That means that numerous people with celiac disease potentially remain undiagnosed.
    Rates of celiac disease were 0.4% in South America, 0.5% in Africa and North America, 0.6% in Asia, and 0.8% in Europe and Oceania; the prevalence was 0.6% in female vs 0.4% males. Celiac disease was significantly more common in children than adults.
    This systematic review and meta-analysis showed celiac disease to be reported worldwide. Blood test data shows celiac disease rate of 1.4%, while biopsy data shows 0.7%. The prevalence of celiac disease varies with sex, age, and location. 
    This review demonstrates a need for more comprehensive population-based studies of celiac disease in numerous countries.  The 1.4% rate indicates that there are 91.2 million people worldwide with celiac disease, and 3.9 million are in the U.S.A.
