  • 3-4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon shoyu
  • 1 tablespoon mirin
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  • Whisk everything together.
  • Get your pan hot and sizzling with butter and pour onto pan. Immediately turn the heat to low.
  • Once there’s a nice little crust forming nearest the pan, start pushing with a spatula from the middle to the sides of the pan. Keep pushing until they are cooked to your liking!
  • We like them topped with furkikake or flaked seaweed strips, and a little dollop of gochujang.


No mirin? It’s great with or without. A little cooking sake as a substitute works wonders as well!
