Chicken Mince Simmered Ebi-Imo (Shrimp-Shaped Taro Potatoes) | Japanese Cooking Video Recipe

No-fuss family dish kids and adults will love 😋

You can arrange this dish with regular taro potatoes, or regular potatoes or a radish kind. Perfect for everyday meal and Bento box!

Because its shape and pattern are like a shrimp, we call this taro potato Ebi-Imo (shrimp potato). It is in season from November through January. My neighbor gave me some beautiful Ebi-Imo, so I decided to make this dish for my family. I hope this idea helps 👍

Chicken Mince Simmered Ebi-Imo (Shrimp-Shaped Taro Potatoes) Recipe

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 30min
Number of servings: 4

600g (1.3lb.) Ebi-Imo (shrimp potato)
300g (0.7lb.) minced chicken
3 tbsp. green peas (cooked/frozen/canned)
400ml Dashi broth
* 4 tbsp. soy sauce
* 2 tbsp. Sake
* 2 tbsp. sugar
* 1 tbsp. ginger juice
1 tbsp. cooking oil
* 1 tbsp. corn/potato starch
* 1 tbsp. water

1. Peel and cut Ebi-Imo in bite-size chunks. Parboil in salted water to remove bitter taste then rinse to remove slimy texture. *When you use regular potato, this procedure is not necessary but it improves flavor.
2. Heat cooking oil in a pot, and cook minced chicken until no longer pink.
3. Add Ebi-Imo and Dashi stock, and bring to a boil. When it comes to a boil, remove the foam.
4. Add the seasonings (A), and cook until the potatoes are soft for about 10~15 minutes.
5. Stop the heat, add starch diluted with water, then heat again until thick.
6. Lastly, add green peas, and cook until hot.
