Recipe: Karasumi Daikon
 
Servings: 4
 
INGREDIENTS
 
 
 
    1 sac of karasumi (dried, salted mullet roe), approx 12-15cm long
    10cm length of daikon, sliced 3mm thick (apple, pear, and cucumber also work well)
    Drinking or cooking sake (optional; this softens the karasumi and adds a little extra aroma)
    Ponzu or sesame oil, to serve (optional)
 
 
PREPARATION
 
 
    Remove skin from karasumi.
    Rub roe with sake. Add a little extra sake to a frying pan.
    Heat the frying pan over a medium-high heat, and fry roe for 30 sec to 1 min on each side.
    Once skin is crispy and the inside is still slightly soft and moist, remove karasumi from pan and cut into 3mm-thick slices.
    Arrange karasumi and daikon slices on a plate, alternating the order. Serve as is or with a little ponzu or sesame oil.
