Daikon Radish Pasta with Soy Sauce

Recipe Daikon Radish Pasta with Soy Sauce

Stir-fry spaghetti-like strips of daikon radish together with real spaghetti. The taste is enhanced by the rich topping of daikon radish srouts, canned tuna, green perilla and shredded nori seaweed dressed with soy sauce.

Peel daikon radish. Take 2/3 of it and cut lengthwise into long julienne strips with thickness like spaghetti. Grate the remaining 1/3 and drain in a sieve to remove excess water. Sprinkle daikon strips with salt (not included in the ingredient list) and lightly rub. When somewhat softened, drain well and thoroughly remove excess moisture. Cut off the root of kaiware-na (daikon radish sprouts) and wash with water. Shake off water and cut lengthwish into fours and mix with grated daikon. Cut ohba (green perilla) leaves into fine strips.

Step 1

Put salt in ample boiling water and boil spaghetti a minute shorter than the package instructions. Heat olive oil and garlic in a frying pan on low heat. When it starts to give off aroma of garlic, add boiled spaghetti and daikon radish strips and stir-fry. Season with salt and pepper to adjust taste.

Step 2

“Serve on a plate topped with grated daikon, canned tuna, green perilla and shredded nori seaweed. Dress with desired amount of soy sauce and mix.

If you like it spicy, sprinkle with ichimi-togarashi (red chili pepper flakes) or shichimi-togarashi (seven-spice chili pepper).”
