Done In 5 Minutes! Delicious Spinach and Tuna Ohitashi

Done In 5 Minutes! Delicious Spinach and Tuna Ohitashi

A great side dish. The spinach is microwaved so there's little work involved. You can make this easily in 5 minutes.

Ingredients: 3 to 4 servings

1 bunch
☆ Canned tuna
80 g (1 can)
☆ Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
☆ Mirin
2 tablespoons
☆ Sesame oil
1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons


1. Wash the spinach, wrap it in plastic wrap and microwave. (I have a 'boiled vegetable' auto-setting on my microwave oven, but I think it should be about 1 and a half minutes at 500 W.)
2. Drain the oil from the canned tuna, and mix all the ☆ ingredients.
3. Squeeze out the moisture from the microwaved spinach and cut into 4 to 5 cm pieces. Combine with the seasoned tuna and it's done.
4. I made a komatsuna greens version since we got some as a gift. This was delicious too, and different from spinach.
5. This version has shiso leaves in it. Since this has sesame oil in it, don't mix the shiso leaves in; shred it up and use as a topping for a refreshing flavor.

Story Behind this Recipe

I use this combination of flavors a lot, so I thought it would go well with spinach too.
