Baked Chikuwa with Mentaiko and Cheese

Baked Chikuwa with Mentaiko and Cheese

It's only about topping and baking.
You can make these easy appetizers in a flash.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Chikuwa
2
Mentaiko (salt-cured spicy pollack or cod roe)
1/4 of a sac
Cheese
2
Toasted nori seaweed
2 cm wide strips × 4

Steps

1. Slice the chikuwa in half lengthwise, then in half crosswise. Remove the membrane from the mentaiko. Cut the cheese into shapes and sizes to fit into the crevice of the chikuwa. (Makes 8 using 4 chikuwa.)
2. Spread mentaiko in the crevice of the chikuwa. Top with cheese. Bake briefly in a oven. Wrap around with nori strips and serve.
3. Here's the cheese I used.

Story Behind this Recipe

I was chosen as a tester for some cheese.
Here's a "how's this!" recipe for my husband who doesn't like cheese.
