Shishito to eringi no amiyaki / grilled shishito peppers and king oyster mushrooms

From the prep stage, the crackling sound and earthy aroma of mushrooms and green peppers on the grill become part of your meal. Grilled ingredients in season are often eaten with soy sauce based dipping sauce, or with salt and a squeeze of citrus such as yuzu, sudachi and kabosu. The grilled eringi and shishito below are served with grated ginger and soy sauce mixed with dashi. This is a very straightforward way to cook with little involved ...

  • The above nutrition figures are based on the assumption that one-third of soy sauce + dashi dipping sauce is consumed.
  • When serving dipping sauce, the less you provide the less your guests consume. This does not mean you are stingy! A generous serving is not always courteous in terms of people's health, including sodium-savvy living.
