Stir Fried Eggplants With Ponzu Sauce

Stir Fried Eggplants With Ponzu Sauce

I had a little bit of ponzu sauce left over. I tried using it in a stir fry, and it was easy, refreshing and delicious.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Eggplants
2
Japanese leek
1
Ponzu
2 tablespoons
Sugar
2/3 to 1 tablespoon
Bonito flakes
1 small packet
Sesame oil
As needed
Shichimi spice (optional)

Steps

1. Cut the eggplants diagonally into 1 cm thick slices. Cut the leek into 1-2 cm wide diagonal slices.
2. Heat some sesame oil in a frying pan, add the vegetables from step 1 and stir fry. If you want to use very little oil put a lid on and steam-cook the eggplant.
3. Add the ponzu and sugar (it's best if you mix them together beforehand) to flavor the eggplant. Transfer to serving plates and sprinkle with bonito flakes.
