This is a common appetizer served in Okinawa Prefecture. If you’re familiar with the Japanese side dish called “horenso goma-ae” then you’ll realize that the ingredients are almost the same except for the one main ingredient. Horenso goma-ae makes use of spinach while this one makes use of pork ears. This recipe is really easy to make. I've used shredded pork ears which has been pre-boiled which I bought from a local Okinawa market.
