- Miso Sake Glaze:
- Shrimp & Shishito Pepper Yakitori:
- 450 grams extra-large prawns, peeled and deveined
- 25 small shishito peppers
- 400 ml water
- 200 ml rice vinegar

For the glaze, mix all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 25-30 minutes or until the glaze is reduced to about half, stirring occasionally, then set aside to cool.

For the prawn Yakitori, preheat the grill on a medium-high heat. Thread the prawns and the shishito peppers onto bamboo skewers. Grill for 2-3 minutes per side, or until prawns turn pink and peppers are blistered, brushing evenly with glaze while cooking. Brush grilled skewers with any remaining glaze.
