This is my favorite food that my mom cooks at home. At my home, we eat it with ponzu sauce which is a citrus-based sauce. It is very tasty and refreshing, so please try it out in this way if you have never tried it! It's a great recipe for bento, too :D
In this tutorial, I use Lékué (pronounced LAY-KWAY) Silicone Steam Case. Lékué is unique because it is made from 100% pure food-grade platinum silicone, built to exceed FDA standards. It's microwave, freezer, dishwasher and oven safe up to 260C (500F) degrees. It costs about 50 bucks in Japan but becoming very popular these days.
Another popular product released this year (in 2011) is jelly ponzu (のっけてジュレ ぽん酢). Jelly ponzu can be spread on anything while traditional ponzu runs over.
Of course you can use ready-made ponzu, or I will show you how to make ponzu sauce from scratch.
Difficulty: Very Easy
Number of servings: 2-4
microwavable cookware OR oven safe cookware
200g (7oz.) enokitake (enoki mushrooms)
4 bacon strips
* 1 tbsp. lemon juice
* 1 tbsp. soy sauce
1. Cut off the roots of the enoki mushrooms and separate them into 8 bundles.
2. Cut bacon strips in half and wrap enoki mushrooms.
3. Place the enoki bacon seam-side down, microwave for 3 minutes at 500w OR bake for about 10 minutes at 200C (390F). When it's done, let it steam for about 3 minutes.
4. Mix A and make ponzu sauce.
5. Pour the ponzu sauce over the enoki bacon just before serving.
I use Steam Microwave Oven (national NE-SS30A).
