Japanese Rolled Omelet (Dashi-Maki Tamago)Matt Taylor-Gross

This Japanese egg dish can be served on its own with grated radish and soy sauce, sliced and incorporated into sushi, or as a sweet bite at the end of a meal.

Kimiko Barber, author of Cook Japanese at Home, uses a traditional square tamago pan to make this Tokyo-style rolled omelet, which is often sweetened with mirin, a Japanese sweet rice wine. Dashi-maki tamago can be served on its own with grated radish and soy sauce, sliced and incorporated into sushi, or as a sweet bite at the end of a meal.

It is helpful if you have a square or rectangular Japanese omelet pan, but a regular round pan can be used—simply cut off the round edges after cooking.
