Nasu Dengaku is crispy grilled eggplant topped with a meat and miso paste known as nikumiso. Although it is fire grilled when cooked in restaurants, it can be cooked at home by frying the eggplant and then broiling. The eggplant is crispy on the outside and tender and moist on the inside. Although an appetizer or a small plate, it is very filling and a single piece can make a nice appetizer for two people to share.
