  1. Step 1

    Combine soy sauce, mirin and ginger in a medium bowl. Add combined mushroom and toss to coat. Set aside, tossing after 2 mins, for 5 mins to develop the flavours.

  2. Step 2

    Place cornflour in a large bowl. Drain mushroom, reserving the soy sauce mixture. Toss half the mushroom in the cornflour. Add enough oil to come 1cm up the side of a large deep frying pan. Heat over medium heat. Cook the mushroom for 2-3 mins or until golden and just tender. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel to drain. Repeat with remaining mushroom and cornflour.

  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, place the baby broccoli in a large heatproof bowl. Cover with boiling water and stand for 5 mins. Refresh under cold water. Drain well. Toss with the radish and cabbage.

  4. Step 4

    Divide the rice, mushroom mixture, baby broccoli mixture, mayonnaise and lemon wedges among serving bowls. Season. Drizzle with reserved soy sauce mixture to serve.

Recipe tip

Cook it right:
Washing mushrooms before cooking reduces their flavour. Instead, simply wipe with a damp cloth to remove dirt.
