Chinese style seafood chukadon donburi with squid, baby corn, red pepper and pak choi served on a bed of Japanese short grain rice by kurumicooks Japanese Asian and Fusion cooking for your kitchen

i posted a recipe for Chinese style chicken chukadon earlier in the year and as it was well received, I thought I'd create another chukadon, this time using seafood. (BTW a "chukadon" in Japanese means a Chinese style meal on a bed of rice.

Anyway, i bought some squid rings (I know squid isn't everyone's proverbial cup of tea but I love it - sorry!) and got some king prawns out of the freezer. I added four vegetabless: pak choi, babycorn, red bell pepper and mushrooms and got cooking.

The sauce for this recipe is a fusion of Japanese and Chinese flavours and uses soy sauce, sake, oyster sauce, ginger and garlic. It creates a lovely fresh tasting sauce perfect for the fresh stir fried flavours of the seafood and veggies. 20 mins later, I had a great summer stir fry ready for the table (I admit, I pre-cooked my rice!). If squid isn't your thing, you could use some shellfish instead or perhaps some white fish - just make sure the seafood is cooked through - the sauce should be cooked until it is a little thickened but don't overdo it - the sauce should have a loose syrupy consistency.

If you'd like to try this out, you can find the youtube tutorial by clicking Chinese style Seafood Chukadon or scroll to the bottom of the page. the written recipe is just below.

Happy cooking! Kurumi XXXX.
