Japanese style spaghetti

Nope, this is not a Yakisoba (though it may look like it!), but it is a Japanese style spaghetti I made over the weekend.

I once had a similar dish at a local Japanese restaurant and I thought, why not try making this at home?

For an extra kick, I added anchovy paste, but it is an optional :)

Ingredients: for 2 serving

200 grams of spaghetti
1 garlic cloves, crush
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
king oyster mushroom, cut into bize size pieces.
shitake mushroom, cut into bize size pieces.
seaweed (for garnish)
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon mirin
1 tablespoon sake
1 teaspoon anchovy paste (optional) 
2-3 tablespoons pasta water


While cooking the spaghetti, heat oil and butter into the pan. Add garlic, anchovy paste, mushroom, broccoli and pasta water.

Add cooked spaghetti into the pan. Season with soy sauce, mirin and sake. Mix spaghetti thoroughly.

Divide between plates, garnish with seaweed.  Enjoy!
