Fuss-Free Stir-Fried Lettuce

Fuss-Free Stir-Fried Lettuce

The best way to enjoy tender lettuce is to stir-fry it. To add a bit of color, I tossed in a handful of baby shrimp. Without the need to chop, clean-up is easy!

Ingredients: 2 servings

1/2-1 head
Baby shrimp (or sakura shrimp
2-3 tablespoons
Sesame oil
as needed
Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon


1. Rinse the lettuce well and tear it with your hands into bite-sized pieces. Drain lightly.
2. Heat a frying pan with sesame oil and place the lettuce in the pan. The amount of lettuce may appear to be a lot, but not to worry.
3. Place the lid on the pan and steam for 1 minute over medium heat.
4. Remove the lid and cook the lettuce slightly until desired tenderness. Sprinkle the baby shrimp over the lettuce and turn off the heat.
5. After that, cook by preheating. Pour the soy sauce and mirin gently and evenly. Then it's done.

Story Behind this Recipe

The lettuce in my fridge looked miserable and I had baby shrimp left over from making okonomiyaki! That's how this recipe was created.
