Peel the skin off of the daikon radish, and cut into 3cm thick round slices. Put the daikon radish in a heatproof dish and cover with plastic film. Microwave at 500W for 7 minutes. In the meantime, cut the garlic into thin slices.
Heat a frying-pan, then spread vegetable oil over the base. Line the garlic and daikon radish in the pan, and cook over medium heat. Put the garlic on top of the daikon radish if it looks like the garlic will burn.
Cook both sides of the daikon radish. Add the soy sauce and butter to coat the daikon radish and garlic to finish!
Story Behind this Recipe
I had daikon radish prepared this way in a restaurant, so I tried to recreate that dish.
The garlic will burn easily, so put it on top of the daikon radish while it's cooking.
