Stir-Fried Mozuku

Today, I will translate my mozuku recipe which won the highest award at mozuku recipe contest. Mozuku (Cladosiphon okamuranus) is noodle-like seaweed which is mainly produced in Okinawa.

Please see how much mozuku ReBekha picked up the other day! Wow!!!

This recipe, you can cook mozuku with leftover ingredients in your fridge! Bacon adds rich flavor to it. Yummy ;P

Stir-Fried Mozuku

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 5-10min
Number of servings: 2

100g (3.5oz.) Mozuku
60g (2.2oz.) carrot
3 Japanese green pepper
3 dried shiitake mushroom
2 bacon strip
1 tbsp. soy sauce
cracked salt and pepper
2 tsp. sesame oil
2 tsp. toasted white sesame seeds

  1. Thank you SO, SO much!! I am so excited to try it! I will post a picture on my blog and link back here so other people can try it, too. :D
    My stomach can't wait! ;)

  2. YES! I just finished my first test cook and it is DELICIOUS. I NEVER would have thought to combine seaweed with bacon and sesame, but it works so well! I took a few pictures but will take more when I cook it again and have prettier plates and lighting at hand.

    You are my hero. :D
