Hijiki Seaweed Salad - Video Recipe

I remember Hijiki salad is a very popular appetizer dish at a Japanese restaurants in New York. The same in other places?!

It goes perfect with rice, perfect for Bento side dish!!!


In this tutorial, I will show you a super easy way to make it in a Microwave. However, if you don't want to use a Microwave, you can always use a pot. Directions are below ;)

Hijiki Seaweed Salad

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 30min
Number of servings: 4

20g (0.7oz.) dried Hijiki seaweed
60g (2.1oz.) carrot
100g (3.5oz.) Chikuwa fish cake
2 Shiitake mushrooms
* 2 tbsp. soy sauce
* 2 tbsp. Sake
* 1 tbsp. sugar
* 1 tsp. sesame oil

1. Place dried Hijiki in a microwavable bowl, add plenty of water, cover with plastic wrap, then microwave at 600 watts for 3 minutes. Leave to cool uncovered for 2 minutes. Wash and drain well. If you don't have a microwave, you can soak in water for 20~30 minutes, then drain.
2. Thinly slice carrot, Shiitake mushrooms, and Chikuwa fish cake.
3. Place Hijiki, carrot, Shiitake, Chikuwa in a microwavable bowl, add A and mix well.
4. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave at 600 watts for 5 minutes. Toss to coat the seasonings evenly, cover with plastic wrap, and let sit for over 10 minutes to marinate. If you don't have a microwave, you can simmer in a pot on low heat until the liquid is gone for about 20 minutes.

You can keep 3~4 days in the fridge :)
