Sashimi Transformed! Easy Non-fried Tuna Fries

Sashimi Transformed! Easy Non-fried Tuna Fries

You only need mayonnaise for dredging and deep-frying. Shake these tuna slices up in a plastic bag, and fry them in a pan.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Tuna (sashimi grade)
100 g
a small amount
Mayonnaise (for dredging)
2 teaspoons
Panko (for dredging)
4 tablespoons
Mayonnaise (for pan-frying)
2 tablespoons
◎ Worchestershire-style sauce (for the sauce)
1 tablespoon
◎ Ketchup (for the sauce)
1 tablespoon
◎ Sugar (for the sauce)
1 teaspoon
Dried parsley (for garnish)
a small amount
Lemon juice (optional)
to taste


1. Make the sauce. Combine the Worchestershire-style sauce, ketchup, and the sugar in a heatproof container, and microwave for 15 seconds at 500 W. Mix well.
2. Lightly pepper one side of the sashimi.
3. Put the tuna and mayonnaise in a plastic bag. Massage over the bag to mix thoroughly.
4. Add panko and shake the bag so that the panko will coat the tuna evenly.
5. Heat the frying pan and spread the mayonnaise for pan-frying. When the mayonnaise begins to melt, align the panko-coated tuna without overlapping.
6. Cook on both sides over medium heat. Take care not to burn. When golden brown, transfer onto a serving dish.
7. Dish it up, and it's done. Scatter on some parsley to make it colorful. Sprinkle a little lemon juice to give it a refreshing flavor.
