Potato, Chikuwa, and Shio-Kombu Aglio, Olio e Peperoncino

The only seasoning is the shio-kombu.
This can be made quickly and easily.
The combination of garlic, potato, and shio-kombu is delicious.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Potato
1 large (about 180-200 g)
Chikuwa
2
Olive oil (or butter)
2 tablespoons
Garlic, finely chopped
2 teaspoons
Red chili pepper
1
Shio-kombu
1 tablespoon plus (to taste)
Black pepper
To taste

Steps

1. Julienne the potato lengthwise. Soak in a bowl of water to wash away the surface starch, then drain very well. Remove the seeds from the chili pepper.
2. Cut the chikuwa in half, then slice into thin strips lengthwise, like the potatoes in Step 1.
3. Saute the oil, chili pepper and garlic into a pan until fragrant. Add the potato and saute until it's reached your preference.
4. Add the chikuwa and shio-kombu, and toss. Season with black pepper and it's done.

Story Behind this Recipe

I've always like eating boiled potatoes with butter and shio-kombu.
I tried to julienne the potato this time and added chikuwa too.
