I learned this dish from the cooking TV show. I had countless rosemary growing in my garden while I was back in Canada and didn’t know how to deal with them… I DID use some of them for our meal. But not as a main dish obviously,, it’s always just a touch of leaves used occasionally.. I was shocked when I first saw a guy on TV using bunches of stems and used as skewers! May be just because in Asia, including Japan, these types of herbs don’t grow much any where and usually end up buying packed herbs sold at super markets and they are rather pricy… Even moved to Canada still had the same thought on those herbs and didn’t come out with the idea using such a general amount of it for cooking. Anyways,, saw it, tried it and loved it. This time I used touch of soy sauce to make bit of Kushi-yaki-like flavor. I was bit surprised rosemary aroma and soy sauce can go this well! Cooking process is very simple. With this idea, you can try many dishes with rosemary & soy sauce combination for seasoning!
