Done in Less Than 5 Minutes - Gizzards with Scallion Oil

Crunchy! Spicy!
Ohhh, it's delicious!
It's so quick to make that you'll laugh about it!
This is great for those who like the smell and taste.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Gizzards
180 g (1/2 pack)
White part of a Japanese leek
to taste
Flavoring Ingredients
Salt
to taste
Sesame oil
1 thin swirl around the dish
Local shichimi chili pepper powder (black chili pepper) This is important
to taste
For Boiling
Leek and ginger scraps, sake
a small amount

Steps

1. These are the ingredients. (From left to right: Green section of Japanese leek, salt, sesame oil, gizzards, white section of Japanese leek, ginger scraps.)
2. Roughly chop the leek!! (Photo Translation: Slice a cross into the white section of the leek and roughly chop it up)
3. Remove the stringy part from the gizzards and cut them in half. I like the texture of the skin, so I leave it on.
4. Place the green section of the leek and the ginger skins, etc. into a pot and bring to a boil. Add the sake. Then add the gizzards. (Photo Translate Top: I used ginger skins and the green part of a Japanese leek. I added 2 tablespoons of sake. Bottom: Let it boil like this for 1 minute.)
5. Once the scum rises to the top, let it boil for 1 minute. Pour into a colander to drain the water and rinse with hot water. Wipe off the excess moisture. Make sure to thoroughly wipe off the excess moisture at this point.
6. While still hot, rub with some salt. Mix with the white section of the leek and thinly drizzle with sesame oil.
7. This is the black chili pepper powder that I used. Use lots of it! Or just use as much as you want.
8. It's done!

Story Behind this Recipe

I added richly flavored sesame oil to lightly colored ingredients. The salt and the black chili pepper powder really brings out the flavors of the ingredients.
This is great for people who like aromatic dishes.

It's a quick dish, so how about trying it for tonight's drinking snack?
