Yama Kitchen & Bar's roasted broccoli with roasted sesame sauce


You'll need

300 gm broccoli (2 heads), halved 2 tbsp vegetable oil Dried bonito-flavoured sesame seeds   Roasted sesame sauce 30 gm white sesame seeds ½ tsp caster sugar 1½ tbsp Kewpie mayonnaise 1 tbsp Japanese rice vinegar 1 tbsp tamari 2½ tsp mirin 2½ tsp sesame oil

Method

  • 01
  • For roasted sesame sauce, preheat oven to 180C. Roast sesame seeds on an oven tray, stirring a couple of times, until golden brown (6-10 minutes). Finely grind sesame seeds and sugar with a mortar and pestle or, for a finer sauce, grind in a high-speed blender. Add remaining ingredients and whisk to combine.
  • 02
  • Increase oven to 250C. Blanch broccoli until just tender, but not soft (1½-2 minutes; see cook’s notes p177). Refresh in iced water, drain and pat dry with paper towels. Oil and season broccoli with salt all over. Place in a roasting pan lined with baking paper and roast until it starts to caramelise (12-18 minutes).
  • 03
  • Pour sesame dressing onto plates and top with roasted broccoli, scatter with bonito-flavoured sesame seeds and serve.
  • 04
  • Note Bonito-flavoured sesame seeds are available from goodgrubhub.com.
