I'm nuts too...

We tried your version of egg yolk sauce, and it wasn't exactly what I was looking for, (which was okay because my husband & I craved it so badly we actually went out to Domo 77 for the real thing YAHOO)! I think that your version has a very distinctive ginger taste (I'm assuming from the miso paste) that is present in the restuarants' "ginger sauce" not in the "egg yolk" concoction that goes on top of the shrimp or lobster as it is cooking. Maybe I'll tinker with it, because it is close. Thanks ;)


I haven't tried this yet, it sounds right, except for the 2 cups of Miso paste, and the cup of white pepper, yuck! You must have meant 2 teaspoons of miso paste, and 1 or 1/2 teaspoon of white pepper? The rest sounds like it should be right though. Sure would be interested in the correct quatities.....Thanks!


This is fantastic. We eat at a restaurant called Ron of Japan in Chicago. When we found this recipe we tried it with just egg yolk, veg oil and not quite all of the Miso Paste (found at an international grocery store in the dairy section of all places). The key really is in the stirring. Then it works well to let it sit in fridge overnight. We love it! Thank you!
