Grilled Aubergine with Red Miso

Pair with Oloroso

Due to the high level of aroma in Oloroso, its taste and dryness goes perfectly with grilled aubergine mixed with red miso.

Ingredients

1 small 
aubergine
2 tablespoons 
mild olive oil
150g 
red miso
1 tablespoon 
mirin
1 tablespoon 
sake
2 tablespoons 
sesame paste (tahini)
1 tablespoon 
castor sugar
1 tablespoon 
white poppy seeds
fresh 
young ginger

Directions

Cut the aubergine in 4 thick rounds and leave to soak in salted water for 5 minutes. Dry with kitchen paper. 

Preheat the grill to medium. Prick a few holes in the skin around each slice and brush all over with olive oil. Grill for 10 minutes, turning. 

Meanwhile, mix together the red miso, mirin, sake, sesame paste and castor sugar. Use to brush over the aubergine slices and then grill for a few more minutes. Sprinkle with poppy seeds and serve. 

Serve with ginger and sweet radishes.

Pairing Oloroso with food

The ideal temperature at which to serve an Oloroso is at between 12 and 14ºC. 

This is the most suitable wine to accompany red meat and game. It combines perfectly with meat stews and casseroles; especially gelatinous meat such as bull's tail or cheeks. The perfect match for wild mushrooms and well cured cheeses.
