2013.11.22: Turnips and Shrimp Drenched in Cream Sauce

I have never eaten turnips in my life and I’m not a huge fan of mushrooms but I’m going to try both for science because this recipe looks really neat. Food is, after all, science, and what else is science but a bunch of people going “fuck it, let’s try it!”

Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2 servings
  • Turnips (4, preferably big ones)
  • Sesame oil (appropriate amount)
  • Ginger (1 thing, chopped into small pieces)
  • Scallions (1/3 one, chopped into small pieces)
  • Black tiger prawns (6, de-veined, tails cut off)
  • Shimeji (or any edible wild mushroom, 80g)
  • Sake (1 tbsp)
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Pepper (to taste)
  • Soy milk (100cc)
  • Heavy cream (50cc)
  • Water (2tbsp)
  • Torigara Soup (appropriate amount)
  • Flour (diluted with water, 1tsp each)
  1. Cut the tops off the turnips. Put them aside, we'll be using them later
  2. Peel the turnips
  3. Cut the turnips into 1cm pieces (should be about 3-4 pieces per turnip if you got big enough ones)
  4. Mince up the turnip tops
  5. In a pan, add an appropriate amount of sesame oil and toss in the ginger and scallions
  6. When that starts to smell like it's cooking, throw in the turnips and shrimp. Maa-kun says to be careful when you're cooking the turnips as they cook pretty fast and be sure to not overcook them
  7. Flip the turnips halfway through and toss in the mushrooms. Over that, pour sake and add salt and pepper to taste
  8. When everything is cooked, plate it
  9. In the same pan, add more sesame oil and coat the turnip tops in it
  10. Add in the soy milk, cream, water, and torigara soup. Season with salt and pepper to taste and get everything mixed together well
  11. To thicken the sauce, add in flour diluted with water and mix that in.
  12. When the sauce is to your preferred thickness, you're done!
  13. Pour over the stir fry from before and enjoy.
