Hiyashi Chuka


INGREDIENTS (makes 1 serving)

(sauce)
4 tbsp soy sauce
2 1/2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp water
1 tbsp sesame oil
1/4 tsp grated ginger
1/2 tbsp sesame seeds

(omelette)
2 eggs
1 tbsp sugar
dash of salt

ramen noodles
1/2 cucumber, julienned
1/2 tomato, sliced into wedges
2-3 slices ham, thinly sliced
4-5 sticks imitation crab sticks, shredded
benishoga (pickled ginger) optional

DIRECTIONS

Combine all ingredients for the sauce and chill in the fridge. Combine ingredients for the omelette. Lightly grease your frying pan with oil and pour in the egg mixture. Cover and cook over medium-low heat until done. Transfer to your work surface and cut the omelette into thin strips. Cook the noodles for 3 minutes or until just al dente. Drain and transfer noodles into ice water until thoroughly chilled. Drain well of excess water, then transfer to a plate. Top with julieneed cucumbers, tomato wedges, sliced ham and imitation crab. Serve with a sprinkling of sesame seeds and benishoga (pickled ginger). Pour the sauce on right before serving. Enjoy with Japanese mustard for some extra kick if you like. Enjoy!

  1. On the video, you said it was 1 tsp sugar for omelette. Please adjust the written recipe. I am making this tonight. Can't wait. Thank for the recipe.
