* yakinasu

2006/08/31 | Filed under food | Tags .
These days I often cook yakinasu ‘ grilled aubergene’ which is the traditional japanese dish. yakinasu is yammy to eat simply with soy sauce, ginger and so, but also put in some nimono(stew) such as nikujaga which is the stew of beef with potatoes.
I cook yakinasu by grilling directly on the fire, not using net or pan. My husband was so surprised to see how I cook it at the first time 14 years ago, because in that way, I just burn aubergenes on the fire!
But I believe this is the best way to cook yakinasu. after ‘burning’ I peel the aubergenes with running water.
it is fun!
I honestly believe yakinasu can be a good companion in salad with oil and vinegar as well,;try and enjoy!
