cooked mentaiko capellini (angelhair) this evening on 2,5,2015.^^
we brought some mentaiko from fukuoka during our recent trip to beppu, yufuin & fukuoka. and i cooked this a few times.
i did a check, only mentaiko available here by kuriya on rakuten & cost S$48 for a tube of 500g. so until the next time i brought back some from japan at a decent price (or maybe some sales at isetan or taka or meidiya), i won’t be cooking this. haha! 🙂
it is a really simple dish to cook.
i googled for recipe & found this 2-
anyhow, i modified & adjusted to my own needs-
2tbsp olive oil
30g (2tbsp) butter softened
dash of pepper (1/4tsp)
cut 3 sheets of nori (seaweed) in thin strips (i didn’t have so used scallions)
- cook capellini to al dente (put in colander add ice & run cold water through hand) & set aside
- mixed mentaiko & other sauce ingredients
- heat sauce in pan, off fire & toss in the capellini
- plate it & add seaweed (or scallions)
