Crispy rice has a revered place in many cultures. These rice cakes are cooked with leftover Japanese steamed rice. It's simple but makes a great snack or a delicious side dish to meat or fish. You can add vegetables and herbs, or use it as a backdrop to a fried egg. Consider serving them as a main dish on top of bacon, Napa cabbage, and scallions.
This recipe uses these pan-fried rice cakes and tops them with chipotle mayonnaise and raw scallop. You then paint them with a thin glaze of a soy-honey mixture not exactly Japanese, but out of this world.
- For the Rice Cake
- 2 cups Japanese rice (leftover, steamed)
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- For Dipping Sauce
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
Gather the ingredients.
Put leftover rice in a bowl, sprinkle flour over the rice, and knead the rice by hand well.
