Japanese Masago Spaghetti Recipe – Pai’s Kitchen!

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??

you’re so sexy. even more attractive than your food s2!!!

nikolas macalma says:

and I would also reccomend possibly adding some furikake. I feel like that combination of the shiso (or anisy herb of your choice) and nori would be amped up with the lovely roasted flavor of sesame seeds. again I havd never made this, but just a possible suggestion…

Racam says:

I wonder if a miso cream pasta is good?

Augustine Z says:

Hey Pai, do you ever use kombu when making a dashi stock or does this recipe not need that component?

MisterStealYourApples says:

Chloe Leow says:

Omg.. My favourite dish when u visit Italian and Japanese fusion restaurant! It’s so good!!

Ed says:

Curry House in L.A. has a sea food pasta that looks like just pasta with flavor and I could never figure out how they made it.  Now I’ll try your recipe and top with Shrimp, Mussels and Scallops..

Pamela Peng says:

did you go to cafe d’lorangerie in vancouver ?

Hal Grotke says:

I love that you use a spoon to eat noodles. When I was in Thailand it was strongly impressed upon me that I was not to put a fork in my mouth. At Thai restaurants in the US every place setting has a fork and often a knife but rarely a spoon. Although I haven’t been to Thailand in over 15 years I always feel awkward eating Thai food with a fork.

Curtis B says:

Where do you buy shiso in Vancouver?

GoranMak says:

I’m normally not a fan of fusion foods – but this makes sense! Japan loves noodles, so it so works! LOVE it!

StinkyPanda says:

You are so hot

John Magee says:

John Dough says:

No Kombu in the Dashi? Was that intentional?
