Chikuwa Tossed in Sesame Oil and Nori

Chikuwa Tossed in Sesame Oil and Nori

Chikuwa fish paste sticks taste great simply tossed in ao-nori, but even better with sesame oil and nori! They're done in no time.

Ingredients

Chikuwa
2
Aonori
1 tablespoon
Sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon

Steps

1. Slice the chikuwa in half lengthwise, then slice diagonally (or into desired shapes).
2. In a bowl, toss the chikuwa with sesame oil. Add the aonori and mix.
3. Arrange on a plate and serve.
4.
5. If you are using this as a bento filler, it's best to fry it in sesame oil before sprinkling on the aonori (recommended by user "Miyuma").

Story Behind this Recipe

Chikuwa tastes great fried and wrapped in nori, but since I don't like frying food, I simply tossed them with seasoning.
