Story Behind this Recipe
When I received satsuma-age fishcakes as a gift, I tried cooking kinpira (stir-fried and simmered) satsuma-age and it was delicious. After that, I sometimes cook this dish. The flavor is based on my mom's kinpira.
My mom uses plenty of sesame oil in her kinpira. If it's too much, reduce the amount. This dish is also great as a drinking appetizer!
