Excludes time needed to chill the marinated peppers.

Ingredients (Servers 2)

  • 4 green bell peppers
  • 1/4 onion
  • 1 tomato (approx. 100 g)
  • 200 ml dashi
  • [A]

    • 1 tsp usukuchi soy sauce
    • 3 tbsp sugar
    • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 lemon (juice only)

Directions

1

Cut the onion across the grain into thin slices. Remove the tomato stem and cut into 16 equal wedges.

2

Bring the dashi to a gentle boil and add [A]. Add the onions and tomatoes and immediately turn off the heat. Stir in the lemon juice and empty into a tray. Set aside to cool.

3

Make an incision around the pepper stems and remove the stems and seeds. Use a grill or gridiron to cook until evenly brown.

4

When cool enough to handle, cut into 1.5-2 cm rounds. Marinate and refrigerate. Serve chilled.

Advice

Adding the peppers to the marinade while still hot allows them to absorb the flavor.
