Oven Recipes-Miso&Daikon Gratin

Daikon can be a great replacement for potato! It contents much less carb and more fiver. Using a quick method to make white sauce. But don’t want to end up with boring regular white sauce. I decided to add some miso for seasoning! It turned out one very tasteful miso-soup-like gratin!

[ Ingredients ] *tsp=tea spoon tbs=table spoon

150g Daikon
8~10 Peeled prawns
6 stalks Asparagus

[ Directions ]

1. Peel daikon, slice it in about 0.5cm thin.

2. Peel the bottom part of asparagus to remove fibery texture.

5. Add the sliced daikon into the pot. Turn on the stove cook over medium heat.

Using salted water, you can not just parboil the materials, but also season them at the same time!

6. Check with a chop stick if its soften…

7. Once it’s soften you can drain the water.

If daikon doesn’t drain out the water completely, it’ll come out with water while baking.
If you are using thick, fat asparagus, you can also parboil them, so it won’t come out with excess water while baking.

8. Add some butter into a fry pan, turn on the stove. Let butter melt over medium heat and add peeled prawns.

9. Add the asparagus, keep stir frying until prawns turn into red.

10. Add white wine.

11. Add daikon, keep stir frying until all the excess water evaporates.

12. Pour heavy cream and milk, bring it to a boil then turn to low heat.

13. Add some Miso.

Unlike just adding salt, miso can add another layer of flavor to the white sauce! You can adjust the amount of miso depending on your preference.

14. Because miso is a solid seasoning, you can use either a strainer or a spoon and chopsticks to blend in.

15. Mix cornstarch and water.

16. Shut off the stove and add starch water.

If you add starch water into boiling sauce, it’ll produce lots of lumps.

17. Mix well and turn on the heat, keep heating until it shows consistency.

18. Add into an oven safe dish.

19. Sprinkle parmesan and breadcrumbs.

20. Place the dish into preheated(230℃)oven. bake it for 2~3minutes or golden brown.

Watch the temperature and  baking time. If cooked at not high enough temperature, it gets soggy before turning into golden brown. Try baking over high heat in short time!
