Stir-fried Potatoes and Chikuwa Fish Sticks with Sesame Seeds, Mayonnaise and Lemon

I stir-fried potatoes with plenty of ground sesame seeds and mayonnaise. I added lemon juice in the end for a little sharpness. It's seasoned well, so add to bentos.

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

Potatoes
3, medium-sized (about 250g)
pan roasted scallops
3
Mayonnaise
1 tablespoon
Soy sauce
1 and 1/2 tablespoons
Ground sesame seeds
About 2 tablespoons
Coarsely ground black pepper
To taste
Lemon juice
2 teaspoons

Steps

1. Peel the potatoes and slice into 5 mm and then julienne into 5 mm batons. Cut the chikuwa in half and slice into the same size as the potatoes.
2. Heat vegetable oil (not listed) in a pan and fry the potatoes for 3-4 minutes. Add the chikuwa and fry for another 3-4 minutes.
3. Add mayonnaise into Step 2 and stir. Add soy sauce, ground sesame seeds and black pepper, fry and stir. Add the lemon juice and stir quickly.
4. Transfer onto a serving dish. Sprinkle with dried parsley as a colourful garnish (optional). Serve.
