Teriyaki Style Aubergine on Rice (Kabayaki)

It looks exactly like the original eel kabayaki, but it's really aubergine!

Recipe By: Tobuchan (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/25)
Serves 1 Prep: 5 min Cook: 15 min

Ingredients

Aubergine (medium) 1
Olive oil 1 tbsp
Soy sauce 3 tbsp
Sake 3 tbsp
Mirin 3 tbsp
Granulated sugar 2.5 tbsp
Water 3 tbsp

Method

1
Put the sake and mirin in a pan and boil until the alcohol has evaporated. Add the soy sauce, sugar and water and reduce the sauce on medium heat.
2
When the sauce is thick, it's ready. If it's too thick, add some water. You can add a pinch of dashi granules here if you like.
3
Peel the aubergine in strips and wrap in a double layer of cling film. Microwave for 3 minutes.
4
Remove the cling film and using two forks, make a long cut and pull it open. Score with a fork to make it flat.
5
Put the olive oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Add the aubergine, skin side down and fry for 3-4 minutes before turning over for another 3-4 minutes.
6
Pour in the sauce from Step 2 and mix well. Turn the aubergine over and fry with the sauce.
7
Fill a bowl with cooked rice and place the aubergine on top then pour over the sauce.

Tips & Note

It's important to evaporate the alcohol from the sake and mirin otherwise it won't taste so good.
