…what’s a planned holiday meal without a few surprises….So when I arrived at the house, I got told that there was a preference for scallops instead of the nobashi ebiyaki and perhaps ginger ice cream instead of vanilla.  So quickly thinking, I decided on the Nobu Scallop/Corn ‘salad’ and swapping the vanilla ice cream pairing with the baked apple with the ginger ice cream (and originally, it was going to be the ‘rainbow’ yogurt parfait dessert instead of the baked apple).

Sashimi

And so, one of the things I found out about this particular recipe was that the flavored grated daikon easily made enough for 6.  The microbatch recipe for the garnish would be:

1 T grated daikon radish (pressed/drained after grating)
1/8 t yuzu kosho paste
1 T ponzu

Salad
