Rolled Ham and Vegetables

This recipe has been adapted from one in my housing company's monthly magazine. This is a popular bar snack in Japan. It's delicious hot, but I'm going to have it cold at work tomorrow sometime, together with some rolled omelette and edamame! Minus the beer of course...

3 slices parma ham or other raw ham
3 long green beans, cut in half and then finely sliced lengthways
same length of carrot, julienned
30g enoki mushrooms, the ones that look like pins
1 teaspoon of sesame oil for frying
For the dip (optional)
1 tablespoon each of soy sauce and mirin (recipe also uses same quantity of sake, but I didn't have any)

  • Prepare the vegetables.
  • In a small frying pan heat the oil over a low heat.
  • Roll the vegetable strips in the ham.
  • Put in the oil seam-side down and fry until golden brown, turn and repeat twice or three times more - about 6 minutes.
  • Serve hot with the dipping sauce.
