Equipment

  • Wok or non stick frying pan

Ingredients

  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled & finely sliced
  • Half red chilli thinly sliced, deseeded
  • 1 red onion peeling & finely sliced
  • Half red pepper roughly chopped
  • Half green pepper roughly chopped
  • Handful of mushrooms peeled and sliced
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 4 portions cooked rice freshly steamed or leftover
  • Fused soy sauce to season, shop here
  • Sesame oil to season
  • Roasted sesame seeds to garnish, optional

Instructions

  • Add vegetable oil to a wok or non-stick frying pan on a medium/ high heat (To check if the oil is hot enough scrap a thin line of beaten egg across the pan using chopsticks or a spatula. If the egg cooks straightaway then the pan is hot enough).
  • Pour the beaten egg into the saucepan and using a spatula cook in the same way as scrambled egg. Once the egg is cooked (try not to overcook the egg) remove and transfer to a small clean bowl.
  • Add more oil to the wok or frying pan and return the heat to medium/high. Toss in the garlic, chilli and red onion and fry for a minute or so. Add the remaining vegetables and fry for another minute.
  • Then add the rice. Use a spatula to turn the rice getting rid of any lumps.
  • Toss in the cooked egg and mix with the rice and vegetables.
  • Season with a generous drizzle of Fused soy sauce and sesame oil and continue to stir for a minute or so. If you want to add some spice Fused Cheeky Chilli works well for this recipe or Fused Glorious Ginger for a punch of flavour.
  • Garnish with roasted sesame seeds (optional)

A Japanese Feast at Eatokyo Dublin

Eatokyo is a trendy Japanese restaurant perfectly located on the edge of Temple Bar and facing Aston Quay in Dublin. The owner of the restaurant and the friendly restaurant manager Jay are both passionate about supporting local Irish producers and using quality ingredients. After eating the food in Eatokyo you won’t be surprised to hear that they make their sauces and dips from scratch to ensure the best flavour comes through in all their dishes.

I had lunch in Eatokyo with my friend Natalia from Smiles Photography and she took some beautiful photos for me to share with you here. Following the Japanese way of eating we enjoyed a mix of dishes from the menu and shared them. The prawn tempura was delicious. The batter was light and crispy just as it should be and the dipping sauce was full of flavour and umami. I’m so happy to say that they have “Fused by Fiona Uyema” my range of flavoured soy sauces on table-top and available to purchase in-store. Eatokyo Sushi Bar Dublin Fiona Uyema FUSED

I can’t go to Eatokyo without ordering a sushi platter. We ordered a mixed sushi platter with nigiri, maki and sashimi and a rainbow roll (ebi tempura roll topped with tuna, salmon, smoked salmon and avocado). Everything was so fresh and delicious.
