Chef Saito's Chicken Kuwayaki

2m 14s

Our theme for this episode is frying. We'll be making a traditional Japanese dish called kuwayaki: pan-fried chicken with a sweet and savory sauce made with soy sauce, mirin, and sake. The sweet and savory combination of soy sauce and mirin is an iconic Japanese flavor today; we'll be marinating chicken and frying it to juicy perfection, adding the sauce to coat as we fry. We'll also be making beautiful, delicious shrimp rice. The pink of the sakura shrimp and the green of the Japanese herb mitsuba come together for a wonderful springtime feel, as well as a great combination of textures and flavors. Join us and enjoy a meal that feels like spring is here!
