Shrimp Tempura Udon Mummy

It is cloudy but warm again, the high is 77F (25C)!

Today, I will translate one of my Halloween recipes in response to the request ;)

Hope all ingredients are available in your area.

Shrimp Tempura Udon Mummy

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 15min
Number of servings: 4

4 ebi(shrimp) tempura
1 nori sheet (cut into 4 squares)
cream cheese
frozen udon noodles or pre-boiled udon noodles
sliced cheese and nori sheet for eyes
tentsuyu or konbu tsuyu

1. Prepare ebi(shrimp) tempura.
The recipe of tempura is HERE.

2. Use frozen udon noodles or pre-boiled udon noodles which looks like the image on the left.

3. Boil udon noodles as directed on package.

4. Spread cream cheese on nori sheet.

5. Wrap ebi(shrimp) tempura with the nori sheet(4.).

6. When Udon gets dry, it's gluten gets strong and sticky. In that instant, wrap udon around the shrimp(5.). Cut out sliced cheese and nori sheet to make their eyes.

7. Pour non-diluted konbu tsuyu over, or dip it in tentsuyu and eat!

Please allow to cool tempura and udon when you wrap. You can eat as cold noodles like zaru udon (chilled udon noodles), or microwave before you eat.

My original recipe in Japanese is here.

A bad cold (cold in the throat) is going around at work.
I need to be careful :(

Take care you all!!!
