Cut the daikon into matchsticks and submerge in water. Mix the ao-nori and salt and set aside.
Heat sesame oil in a pan. Remove the water from the daikon and fry over high heat until the water evaporates.
Once the daikon is tender and dry, add the aonori/salt mix. Toss well and it's done.
Story Behind this Recipe
I made this side dish using my son's favorite daikon matchsticks. While he likes them in miso soup, I wanted another dish for him to have them with rice. Since this dish is so easy, some might not even consider it real cooking, but my son loves it, so I mix it with rice to make rice balls, which he devours.
Be sure to evaporate all the liquid out of the daikon. A little charring is fine, since the aroma adds flavor. When making rice balls, cut the daikon more finely with kitchen scissors so that it mixes well with rice.
