納豆と明太子の和風スパゲティ(nattou to mentaiko no wahuu spaghetti)

What kind of dish is nattou to mentaiko no wahuu spaghetti??

A Japanese-style spaghetti with soy sauce and mirin added to peperoncino. The combination of natto, pollock roe and green shiso leaves is a favorite in Japan.

A sauce made by combining soy sauce, mirin, and dashi stock is called ”mentuyu.”

To make mentsuyu, mix 20g of dark soy sauce, 20g of light soy sauce, 30g of mirin, 5g of dashi stock granules, and 400g of water, bring to a boil, and cool.

It can be stored in the refrigerator for about a week, so if you make a large amount, you can use it for various dishes such as spaghetti, nikujyaga, and udon noodles.
