My Original Hand Rolls with Crispy Crunchy Tenkasu

My Original Hand Rolls with Crispy Crunchy Tenkasu

Tenkasu are tempura batter crumbs. I used mentsuyu sauce marinated daikon radish and the crispy airy tenkasu as the filling for sushi handrolls.
They have a fun texture and are pretty refreshing!

Story Behind this Recipe

I was selected to be a recipe tester for a sushi hand roll project, so I wanted to think up an unusual hand roll combination. This is relatively healthy and inexpensive!
