I have served versions of this dish in the best restaurants in London and at Huka Lodge. The cedar adds a beautiful aroma and flavour when cooking and serving.


  • ½ cup sweet white miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

Whisk the white miso, soy sauce, mirin and sake in a medium-sized mixing bowl, incorporating all the ingredients to form a smooth paste.
