Nunu's Kitchen - Ultimate mentaiko kimchi udon

Because it's really THAT good!!
This makes about 4 servings (or 1 1/2 if you live in my household -______-")

  • 4 things of Udon - I like the frozen ones, they have better texture and taste.
  • About 200g of fresh mentaiko (Japanese marinated pollock roe). Use more or less depending on your love of mentaiko. We like LOTS of it xD
  • Kimchi - amount also depending on your love of kimchi.
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic butter/regular butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp cream
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise. You should probably use Japanese mayonnaise like Kewpie but I just used Hellman's 1/2 The Fat Mayonnaise because that was all I had xD.
  • 1 tsp granulated dashi.
  • 1 stalk green onion, chopped
  • Toasted nori for decoration
  • Boil water and cook udon according to instructions. Drain when done. I usually also run the noodles through cold water to wash off any starch and to stop it from cooking further.
  • Remove mentaiko from casing and mix with mayonnaise, dashi, melted butter and cream.
  • Heat up some oil in a pan, once the oil is hot, add the udon to the pan. Stir fry the noodles for a bit. Yes "a bit" is a unit of time. Basically just enough to heat up the noodles again xD.
  • Add kimchi and mix well with udon.
  • Add mentaiko, turn off heat and mix until everything is....mixed.
  • Add chopped green onion and toasted nori before serving.
  • Watch as significant other shovels your portion into his mouth.
  • Whine.
Judgy face cat is judging you.
