Miyazaki Nanban uses chikuwa to make a healthy dish. The smell of sesame oil whets the appetite. This dish goes well with sake, or makes a perfect bento item.
I made Miyazaki nanban with chikuwa. It's nice with sake, great as bento fillers, or served with rice or noodles.
The latticed shallow cuts help the flavors seep into the chikuwa.Since the sesame seeds slide off when baked, sprinkle on more before serving.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
