This is a copycat recipe of a dish at Benihana's. Serve each parchment or foil envelope along with rice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan or flat grill until very hot and stir-fry vegetables and stir-fry for 2 minutes.
  2. Prepare 4 parchment or aluminum foil papillotes (envelopes).
  3. In a small bowl, stir together miso paste, sugar, rice wine or sherry and soy sauce until smooth.
  4. Place grilled vegetables in the center half of each opened papillotes heart. Brush the miso mixture over the grilled vegetables and top with seawood and scallions.
  5. Seal the packages and place them in the frying pan or on the grill. Grill for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the packages are puffed.
  6. Transfer to plates and let each diner open his or her own package.

I cut the recipe to serve 2 and the amount reduced for 2 servings would serve 4 . The taste was good with all the wonderful vegetables being represented and miso taste came through very nicely. Next time I make this I would skip the last part of enclosing veggies in paper. It would help to add oil in the ingredients for stir frying. Thank you Celticevergreen for posting this recipe.
