Flavorful Oysters Simmered in Soy Sauce

Flavorful Oysters Simmered in Soy Sauce

These somewhat extravagant soy sauce-flavored oysters are great with rice and perfect with alcohol!

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

Oysters
1 pack (150 g)
Ginger
1 knob
Sake
100 ml
Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
Mirin
1 tablespoon
Sugar
1 tablespoon

Steps

1. Julienne the ginger. About 1/2 tablespoon worth.
2. Place the oysters in a strainer and lightly sprinkle with salt. Use your hands to rub the salt in and then rinse very quickly with running water.
3. Put the sake, soy sauce, mirin, sugar, and ginger into a small pot. Bring to a boil.
4. Add the oysters. If the oysters tear, the flavors will seep out, so place them in gently.
5. Cover with drop lid and simmer on low heat until the liquid evaporates. You can also use aluminium foil as a drop lid.
6. Remove the drop lid and continue simmering while occasionally stirring, until the liquid has completely evaporated. It's done.

Story Behind this Recipe

I had some leftover oysters, so I made a rich soy sauce dish.
