What to Eat: Japanese Small Plates - The Daily Beast: "An array of flavors bold and bright can be found in this creation from one of Food & Wine magazine’s “Best of the Best.”
Of all the interesting citrus fruits—Buddha’s hand, pomelos, ugli fruit—gastronomes have most widely embraced the Japanese yuzu. The flavor is tart, tasting like a cross between a grapefruit and a Mandarin orange, and the fruit is highly aromatic. Here, it is mixed with the rich flavors of miso and served as a sumptuous sauce for shallow-fried eggplant, cutting through the grease to reveal the eggplant’s creaminess."
