Myoga Ginger, Shiso and Aburaage Fried Tofu with Sesame Seeds

I highly recommend this dish as a drinking appetizer! Please try different variations.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Myoga ginger
2 to 3
Shiso leaves
6
Aburaage
1
Ground sesame seeds
about 1 tablespoon
Soy sauce (or dashi soy sauce)
to taste

Steps

1. Grill the aburaage on both sides on a grill. Cut in half, and then into 5 mm slices. Cool (alternatively, you can dry-fry in a pan after cutting it up).
2. Grill the aburaage on both sides on a grill. Cut in half, and then into 5 mm slices. Cool (alternatively you can dry-fry in a pan after cutting it up).
3. Mix all 3 ingredients together, add the ground sesame seeds and soy sauce, and it's done.
4. You can use this on somen noodle and shabu shabu pork too. I use this on cold udon noodles, on hot rice, and in miso soup.

Story Behind this Recipe

My parents grow lots of myoga ginger and shiso in their garden, so I thought of this recipe that uses lots of both a long time ago.
