Honestly a bit afraid of what my parents were now urging me to try, I grabbed the safest looking plate. It didn't look like raw fish, more like a piece of tofu or egg on a "fun size" morsel of rice.
Well, it was, and let me tell you, tamagoyaki (tah-mah-go-yah-kee, or just tamago) still has a warm place in my heart.
Tamagoyaki is basically an omelette, it can be eaten by itself or placed on rice as nigiri sushi (nigiri - knee-gee-ree).
Step 1: Collect your tools!
You'll also need either chopsticks or a whisk to scramble the eggs, I prefer chopsticks because a whisk might make the eggs too bubbly.
A bowl to mix the ingredients
I also use a wide spatula and sometimes a small silicone spatula to help roll the omelette.
A sharp knife.
