Recipe Collection: Fried Daikon Radish
Fried Daikon Radish (adapted from Dr Atkin's New Diet Cookbook)
Peel the radish. Grate radish using the larger holed grater. Heat about 1/4" olive oil in a hot skillet - I used a cast iron skillet. Add garlic powder to taste. When the oil is hot, add grated radish. Pack down evenly around the skillet. Flip when the bottoms brown. Use caution as brown to black goes much faster than raw to brown. I think it is about 10 minutes per side. When the other side is browned, remove radish from pan onto layers of paper towels to soak up extra oil. Add salt and pepper to taste.
If you are trying a low carb diet and missing potatoes - this is a great alternative. I would cook them again in a heartbeat - even for breakfast with fried eggs. With the oil used, it is probably neither low calorie or low fat, but I haven't done the calculations.
