Goma Dare – Sesame Sauce

When we organise parties in autumn or winter we like to do a fusion of a Hot Pot and a Shabu Shabu.

Different soup bases (Shezchuan, Tom Yum or Dashi) where you can dip a huge variety of vegetables, mushrooms, fish balls, fish cakes, tofu , sea food and Beef Slices.

I usually as my butcher to cut thin slices of a nice aged rib eye. I like it to have even spread fat, that will melt in the boiling soup and have great taste.

You serve it with different sauce to dip, usually I do a soy/coriander/chilli/lime sauce, a ponzu and a goma dare.

Here the recipe for the home made goma dare.

Ingredients:

Red Miso 125 gr

mirin 125 ml

dashi stock 250 gr

sugar 20 gr

sesame seeds 200 gr.

First of all roast in a hot pan the sesame seeds. Make sure you prepare a little at the time and keep shuffling them so that they don’t burn.

Grind 175 gr of them. I used a nice small sesame grinder I found in Japan, but even a Kitchen robot will work.

Put the grinded sesame, the red miso, the miring, the dash and the sugar in a pot.

Bring to boil and let cool down. Add the remaining 25 gr. of roasted sesame.

Enjoy!
