tep­pa­nyaki Prawns in­gre­di­ents



2 Whole Large Prawns 60 ml White Wine 2 x ¼ pieces sliced cheese i Rose Rock Salt & Ground Pep­per i 4 tea­spoons Ja­panese Honey/mus­tard May­on­naise i 1 tea­spoon Fly­ing Fish Roe. Cut along the back of prawn to de­vein and but­ter­fly the meat, leav­ing the shell in­tact. Place on the hot Tep­pa­nyaki grill and steam un­der a dome lid cover for ap­prox­i­mately one minute with white wine. Sea­son with ground pep­per and rock salt. While still on the grill, place cheese over the prawn and al­low to melt. Driz­zle honey/mus­tard may­on­naise across the prawns and fin­ish with a mound of Fly­ing Fish Roe.


Cut off the top of the egg with scis­sors be­ing care­ful not to break the bot­tom part of the shell. Re­move egg yolk and dis­card. Mix the egg white with saki and mirin till well blended. Put the mix­ture back into the eggshells and place them in an egg stand holder. Place on the hot Tep­pa­nyaki grill and steam with wa­ter un­der a dome lid cover for 45 to 60 sec­onds. When cooked, sea­son with pep­per and salt. Fin­ish by in­sert­ing the goose liver pate. Note: The above dishes are cooked on the Tep­pa­nyaki Grill. At home, you can im­pro­vise by us­ing a flat grill plate and a small stain­less steel bowl as the steamer cover.
