Cheesy Prawn Tempura Mummy Wrapped in Udon Noodles

This recipe is for Halloween. It's prepared by wrapping cream-flavored prawn tempura with udon. The saltiness of cream cheese and the sweetness of kombu sauce creates a good balance. It's tasty.

Ingredients: 2 mummies

Prawn tempura
Nori seaweed
2 sheets (cut them into quarters)
Philadelphia cream cheese
Boiled udon
Kombu based mentsuyu (2x concentrate)
As needed


1. Boil the udon but take them out of the boil slightly earlier than what's recommended on the package.
2. Spread the cream cheese on the nori seaweed.
3. Wrap the prawn tempura with the nori seaweed from Step 2.
4. Wrap the prawn with the udon from Step 1 when they've dried slightly and become a bit glutinous. Place on the eyes made with sliced cheese and nori seaweed. Serve with warmed mentsuyu.

Story Behind this Recipe

I thought of this recipe when I saw a decorative mummy when I shopping yesterday. I wasn't sure if I could wrap the prawn with udon but it turned out to be easier than I thought.
