Crispy Skewered Pork Wraps with Edamame and Cheese

The crispy and juicy pork belly is wrapped around cheese and plump edamame filled hanpen fish cakes. These skewers are fun to eat and delicious.

Ingredients: 5 skewers

Thinly sliced pork belly
5 slices
Cream cheese
30 g
Edamame (frozen)
50 g (with shells)
as needed
Black pepper or salt & pepper
a small amount
Yuzu pepper, lemon


1. Remove the edamame from the shells and dry off the excess moisture.
2. Place the hanpen and cream cheese into a food processor and blend until smooth. Stir in the edamame from Step 1. Divide into 5 portions.
3. Dust a sheet of plastic wrap with katakuriko. Roll out each portion from Step 5 into 6cm wide cylinders. Make 5 cylinders.
4. Season the pork with black pepper or salt and pepper. Wrap the pork around Step 5 in a spiral design to completely cover the filling.
5. Stick onto skewers and fry in a heated frying pan. Add oil as necessary and occasionally roll the skewers around. Once the pork has become crispy and completely cooked, they are done.
6. Optionally garnish with yuzu pepper paste or lemon.

Story Behind this Recipe

I decided that I wanted to come up with a recipe with a different from usual texture that would be crispy, plump, and taste delicious all at the same time.
