Mentaiko Udon

Mentaiko Udon

You can make this in no time using shiro-dashi (dashi stock with light soy sauce)! It's a slightly creamy udon noodle dish. Please give it a try!

about 1/4 teaspoon
☆ Salt and pepper
a small amount
Shredded nori seaweed
as much as you like
Finely chopped green onion
as much as you like


1. Mix all the ☆ ingredients together in a bowl. (If the butter is cold and hard, cut it up into small pieces beforehand.)
2. Cook the udon noodles following package instructions.
3. Mix the udon noodles with the contents of the bowl. Transfer to serving plates.
4. Top with shredded nori seaweed and finely chopped green onions to taste and it's done.
5. Radish sprouts are nice with this too.
