DIRECTIONS

  • Turn your oven to the highest broil setting.
  • Oil a small cookie sheet, or something similar, with the sesame oil.
  • Place the mochi on the oiled pan, and proceed to dribble the sesame oil onto that as well, and distribute it around until it's evenly coated. Set aside.
  • Mix the rest of the ingredients, and bring to a boil, adding water in small (1oz) amounts to keep the resulting sauce in liquid form. While you are waiting for this to come to a boil, place the sesame oil-coated mochi under the broiler.
  • When the mochi starts to become crisp, glaze it slightly with the sauce, flipping it, until the sauce in the pan becomes caramelized.
  • At the very end, remove your broiled mochi, and plate it by setting it down on the plate, and then adding enough sauce to cover (and surround it slightly).
  • Make sure to work quickly! Not a step but just advice. The glaze will become a thick and sweet shell on the mochi, but if you do not hurry, it will become a lump of caramelized sugary stuff in the pan!
