This is another variation of Japan’s popular rice bowl dish ‘Oyako Don’. What you have to do is to cook ingredients in Dashi Stock seasoned with Mirin and Soy Sauce, sometimes with Sugar for extra sweetness, then bind the ingredients with Egg. Today I used Seafood Mix, that included Prawns, Squid and White Fish. It’s a quick & easy & nutritious & delicious dish, that was perfect for my lunch.


1 serving


1/4 cup Water
1/8 teaspoon Dashi Powder *I used Kombu (Kelp) Dashi Powder
1 tablespoon Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon Mirin
1 teaspoon Sugar *optional, only if you like sweeter flavour
1 thick Spring Onion *thickly sliced diagonally
100 to 120g Seafood Mix *thawed if frozen
1 Egg *lightly whisked
1 serving warm Cooked Rice
Shichimi (Japanese Chilli Spice Mix) OR Ground Chilli

  1. Place Water, Dashi Powder, Soy Sauce and Mirin (and Sugar) in a small frying pan (18-20cm) OR saucepan, and bring to the boil. Add Spring Onion and Seafood, and bring back to the boil.
  2. When Seafood are cooked, pour the lightly whisked Egg over but DO NOT stir. Cover with a lid and cook until the Egg is softly set.
  3. Half fill a bowl with warm Cooked Rice, cover it with the mixture, and enjoy. *Note: I sprinkled with some Shichimi (Japanese Chilli Spice Mix).
