Ninjin-shirishiri is home cooking of Okinawa. Ninjin means carrot. Shirishiri reflects the Okinawa dialect and means “slice with slicer”. This dish using very thin carrot strips is easy-to-eat. Okinawa is a small island and, being located about 400 miles from the mainland, is the most southwest of prefectures in Japan.
