Fried Crispy Yam with Ao-Nori Seaweed

Fried Crispy Yam with Ao-Nori Seaweed

I added white sesame seeds and aonori to panko. It's easy, and not messy by coating the sliced yam in a plastic bag. You can make it in 15 minutes.

Ingredients: 2 to 3 Servings

Salt and pepper
a small amount
3 tablespoons
White sesame seeds
1 teaspoon
1/3 teaspoon


1. Slice the yam into 1cm, and peel the skin off. Season both sides with salt and pepper.
2. Put the panko, white sesame seeds, aonori into a plastic bag and mix. Add the sliced yam, too.
3. Close the bag up with one hand, and shake the bag to coat the yam.
4. Heat a pan with a generous amount of oil. Fry the yam in medium to low heat slowly.

Story Behind this Recipe

Yam is eaten by grating, and poured on soba noodles, or sliced to put on cooked rice, or stir- fried. This time, I fried them till they were crisp, so I wanted to introduce this recipe.
