Mussels Japanese-style (Misoyaki)

Having lived and visited Japan for years I had the pleasure to enjoy Classic Japanese and the more modern Fusion Cuisine over the years. I love the different type of seafood and the simple preparation of the different dishes. While visiting Chibu on one of my trips I made a trip to the local seafood market. We decided to prepare a large dish of mussels that I complemented with some toasted garlic bread. It takes no time to prepare and can be enjoyed as an appetizer or a main course.



  1. Preheat broiler or grill. Place mussels on a broiler pan. Broil until mussels are slightly brown and surface is drying out, about 5 minutes on medium-high heat. Do not overcook or they will toughen.
  2. Spoon Sumiso sauce on opened mussels and broil for 1 minute.
  3. Transfer to plates and garnish with sliced scallions.

Serves: 4
