RE: Yakitori recipes
We enjoyed YakiTori purchased from street vendors for a very small fee during my service time on Hokkaido, Northern Japan. It would be considered Fair or Finger food here.At just a few cents per skewer, we would buy a dozen or so and eat them as we wandered around town in our off-duty time. It does go great with Beer!
Making Yakitori (Tare)
Ingredients:(make 4 servings)
2 chicken breasts
1 medium leek
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp sake
3 tbsp mirin
3 tbsp soy sauce
A good Teriyaki sauce can be substituted for the sauce ingredients listed here (except the Sake)
*Bamboo skewers (soaked in water to prevent burning)
How to Cook:
Cut chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces.
Cut the leek into 1 inch lengths Skewer the chicken and leek pieces in alternating order.
Mix sugar, sake, mirin, and soy sauce in a bowl.
Grill the skewered chicken over hot coals, basting with teriyaki sauce until the chicken is cooked.
