Japanese style pasta is a very common genre of food in Japan, and for good reason! Full disclosure: this dish is a copy cat! My attempt to recreate a dish I fell in love with at a local Japanese pasta restaurant here in Vancouver. It’s a light cream sauce flavoured with “masago” or the little orange fish roe you sometimes see on sushi! It has all the iconic flavours of Japanese cuisine: a balance of sweet, salty and umami. The masago and bonito give flavours reminiscent of the ocean. Top it with a fried egg and seaweed, and I’m a happy gal! Oh, did I mention it is insanely easy??
