Fried Chicken With Seaweed (Nori)

READY IN: 55mins




  • Cut off the nerves of the chicken. Cut the chicken in cubes, into pieces of the same size. Put the chicken pieces in a bowl.
  • Mix the soy sauce, mirin and the piece of ginger in a jar, spread this mix over the chicken; make sure the chicken cubes are well covered with the marinade. Let it stand for 15 minutes, and slip of the excess of marinade.
  • Mix the nori with the cornstarch, and with your fingertips, coat lightly each chicken cube with the mix. Heat the oil in a heavy skillet at medium heat. Fry 6 or 7 chicken pieces at the same time until they are golden, turning them from time to time. Put the chicken pieces on absorbent paper.
  • Serve with cooked steamed rice, pickled ginger (gari) and cucumber slices.
  • Decorate with more nori laminates, if you like.
