Japanese style spicy cod roe pasta. Seaweeds and green Shiso on top

Have you tried Spicy Cod Roe? It’s a pretty popular in Japan. We often eat it with white rice. It’s more like breakfast to me lol.

This time, I would like to introduce Rich Spicy Cod Roe Pasta. This is more like Japanese style rather than other tomato sauce or white cream sauce ones. You will enjoy spicy cod roe texture as well as rich flavor of dashi soy sauce and mayo mixture. It’s very easy to cook. Please try it out!
