These are pretty tasty on their own or with a dab of sour cream or mayonnaise. They are also good cold.

Daikon contains a lot of water and 1 1/2 pounds only makes 6 cakes. Because of its water content, it is important to get the grated daikon as dry as you can or the cakes will fall apart when you fry them.

Daik-tato Cakes

  • Makes 6 cakes
  • 1 1/2 lbs. daikon radish
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • 5 Tbsp. finely ground pork rinds
  • 2 Tbsp. finely minced green onion
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. olive or vegetable oil

Peel, and grate the daikon into a bowl. Combine with the salt and let sit for 1/2 hour.

Squeeze the water out of the daikon with your hands. The more water you squeeze, the better the cakes will be. Mix the daikon with the egg, pork rinds, green onion and sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Let sit for 10 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Heat a heavy frying pan - a cast iron pan is ideal - that can go into the oven over medium-low heat. Swirl the oil around the pan. Fill a 1/4-cup dry measuring cup with some of the mixture, packing it slightly. Turn out into the frying pan. You should have a nicely shaped cake that stands a bit more than an inch high. Continue with the remaining mixture. Fry the cakes on one side without disturbing them too much until browned on the bottom, 5-6 minutes. Very carefully turn the cakes over and fry for 2-3 minutes longer. Place the whole pan in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
