Steamed Shrimp, Mushrooms, Chicken And Ginkgo Nuts
(Kabura Mushi)
What You Need:
  • 2 white turnips (2 ounces each), peeled and finely grated
  • 2 small white mushrooms cut into very fine strips
  • 2 medium-sized shrimp (16 to 20 per pound), peeled and deveined
  • ½ boned, unskinned chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ¼ teaspoon ajishio (equal parts salt and MSG)
  • ¼ teaspoon Japanese all-purpose soy sauce
  • 6 canned ginnan (ginkgo nuts)
  • 2 teaspoons beaten egg

  • 2 cups ichiban dashi
  • 4 teaspoons Japanese all-purpose soy sauce
  • MSG
  • 4 teaspoons sake (rice wine)
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch, mixed with
  • 2 tablespoons cold water

  • ½ teaspoon wasabi (horseradish) powder, mixed to a paste with a few drops of cold water, and set aside to rest for 15 minutes

  • How To Cook:
    1. Sprinkle the turnips, mushrooms, shrimp and chicken with ajishio, and sprinkle the chicken bits with ¼ teaspoon of soy sauce.

    2. On each of two small heatproof plates-or on two rounds of aluminum foil about 6 inches in diameter-arrange half the mushroom strips, shrimp, chicken bits and ginkgo nuts.

    3. In a small dish, combine the grated white turnip with 2 teaspoons of beaten egg; divide it in two and place a mound on each plate.

    4. Steam for 7 minutes in an Oriental steamer or the steamer substitute.

    5. Meanwhile, in a 1-quart saucepan bring 2 cups of ichiban dashi to a boil over high heat.

    6. Add the 4 teaspoons soy sauce, sake and a sprinkle of MSG lower the heat, and slowly stir in the cornstarch mixture. Simmer, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens and clears.

    7. Slide the contents of each plate of steamed food off the plates or foil into individual soup bowls and pour the sauce over them. Garnish the turnip with a dab of wasabi paste.
