Kai-Saru Caesar

Kai-Saru Caesar

Kai-Saru is the traditional Japanese pronunciation of the word Caesar, and this recipe is a special tribute to the wonderful flavours Japanese cuisine has given to the world. Sake is the base, layered with the delicate acidity of rice vinegar, pickled ginger juice, and soy sauce, and capped off with some heat from the wasabi. Finally, while not mandatory, garnishing this baby with a battered clam sushi roll makes it a cross-cultural work of art.
