Egg, Shrimp and Asparagus Chaa (Stir-fry) with the Fragrance of Bonito

"Chaa" means stir fry. In this stir fry, by using a certain trick, the egg, asparagus and shrimp blend well together and don't become separated. Simply flavored with bonito dashi based sauce, this is so yummy, yummy.

Ingredients: 4 servings

100 g
100 g
Bonito dashi base mentsuyu (2x concentrate)
50 ml
a pinch
1 teaspoon


1. I used frozen shrimp. Defrost, then microwave for about 2 minutes. You can just use thin asparagus stalks. Cut them up to about the same size as the shrimp, and boil for 1 minute. Let cool down.
2. When the shrimp and asparagus have cooled down, dust lightly with katakuriko. Beat the eggs and season lightly with salt and sugar.
3. Heat vegetable oil in a pan, and add the eggs. Immediately add the shrimp and asparagus. Stir fry while coating with the egg. When the egg is soft set, pour in the bonito dashi based sauce around the perimeter of the pan (on the hot surface so it sizzles). Finished.
