Fried Nori Chicken

5 minutes
20 minutes + marinating

2 tbsp light soy sauce

2 tbsp mirin

1 tbsp sake

3 tsp finely grated fresh ginger

2 garlic cloves, finely grated

600g (1.3 lb) chicken thigh fillets, excess fat trimmed, cut into 4cm pieces

1 sheet nori

1 cup plain flour or cornflour

vegetable oil for deep-frying

lime wedges to serve


Wasabi mayonnaise:

½ cup Kewpie mayonnaise

2-3 tsp wasabi paste

squeeze of lime

  • Step 1

    Combine the soy sauce, mirin, sake, ginger and garlic in a glass or ceramic dish. Add the chicken and toss well. Cover and place in the fridge for 1-2 hours to marinate if you have time (or at least 10 minutes).

  • Step 2

    Combine the ingredients for the wasabi mayonnaise in a small bowl. Cover and store in the fridge until required.

  • Step 3

    Use scissors to cut the nori into tiny pieces.

  • Step 4

    Place the flour on a plate. Add the nori and toss to combine. Drain the chicken and add to the flour. Toss to coat.

  • Step 5

    Fill a wok or deep frying pan to about 1/3 capacity with the oil. Heat over high heat. The oil is hot enough when a wooden spoon dipped into the oil forms small little bubbles. Cook the chicken, in batches, in the hot oil for 4 minutes or until cooked through and crispy. Drain on paper towel.

  • Step 6

    Serve the chicken with the wasabi mayonnaise and lime wedges.
