Look, I’m just going to be totally honest with you. While they may look like potato fries, they’re not — nor are they trying to be potato fries. They’re Daikon fries, and proud of it.
Daikon is a long white Asian radish that looks like a parsnip, though it’s usually much larger. Slightly less pungent than the small round radishes, they’re quite good raw or pickled for an excellent crunch in a salad — however, I love them the most roasted and doused in sweet and spicy flavors.
Please don’t expect the same texture that you’d find in a potato French fry. These Daikon fries will have a wonderful caramelized “crust,” but they will be softer than they will be crisp. Oh, and I wouldn’t even think about dipping them in any sort of a sauce, as each one is a mouthful of scrumptious flavors.
