Daikon Bacon

  3. Lay out the strips on kitchen towel, sprinkle with salt and let rest for 15 minutes.

  4. Mix all the other ingredients in a large bowl

  5. Wash the daikon strips under cold water to get rid of the salt and then add all strips to the marinade.

  6. Cover the bowl and let the daikon marinade for at least 30 minutes.

  7. Heat a pan on medium high heat.

  8. Add 2 Tbsp Olive Oil to the pan.

  9. Fry the daikon strips for 5 minutes, turning regularly to avoid burning the strips.
