Japanese-style Stir Fried Mozuku

ochikeron's picture
Mozuku (Cladosiphon okamuranus) is noodle-like seaweed which is mainly produced in Okinawa. It is rich in fiber and minerals! Mozuku is usually sold frozen, so please check the freezer at Asian grocery stores. I hope it is available!!! For this recipe you need plain (non-flavored) Mozuku, so don't get the one soaked in vinegar!
Directions

GETTING READY
1. Wash mozuku and drain well. Cut into bite sized pieces if too long.
2. Thinly slice the shiitake mushroom.
3. Cut carrot, green pepper, and bacon into thin strips.

MAKING
2. Heat sesame oil in a frying pan, cook the bacon until crisp. Add and stir-fry carrot and green pepper until slightly softened. Then add and stir-fry shiitake and mozuku.
3. Season with soy sauce, salt and cracked black pepper.

SERVING
4. Serve garnished with a sprinkle of toasted white sesame seeds or ground sesame seeds.
