Stir-Fried Komatsuna and Crab Meat

Hi! Thanks for your concern! My cold is getting better after taking the cold medicine behind-the-counter :) It works when I don't expect that much, you know!

For lunch, I again had the $10 Fugu Chiri Nabe! The menu ends in February, so I was lucky to go there again!

Anyway, do you know komatsuna? It is called "Japanese mustard spinach" in the US supermarkets. I have a really easy & delicious recipe for you!

Stir-Fried Komatsuna and Crab Meat

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 5min
Number of servings: 2

200g (0.4lb.) komatsuna (Japanese mustard spinach)
40g (1.4oz.) imitation crab sticks
cracked salt and pepper
2 tsp. sesame oil

1. Cut komatsuna into bite-size and separate the stalks and leaves. Thinly tear up imitation crab sticks.
2. Heat sesame oil in a frying pan, and fry the komatsuna stalks until slightly softened.
3. Add the komatsuna leaves and the strips of imitation crab sticks in the pan and stir fry until leaves are wilted.
4. Season with cracked salt and pepper and serve.

You can substitute komatsuna with spinach. But you need to precook (boil) spinach to remove oxalic acid. Komatsuna contains less oxalic acid than spinach, so you can stir-fry without precooking.

My original recipe in Japanese is here.

I had my eyelash extensions done again this evening! I just thought it costs almost the same as juke tower... Never mind!!!

I am going to take off from work and attend an awarding ceremony tomorrow! I hope it is something worth to attend...
