Grilled Aubergine with Red Miso

Pair with: Oloroso


Cooking time: 1 hour

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



Grilled Aubergine with Red Miso

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.
