Instructions

  1. Preheat the barbecue, then make a marinade by whisking together the mirin, white miso paste, maple syrup, sesame oil, chilli flakes and some freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Halve 6 small aubergines lengthways (or 3 large aubergines) then score the flesh and brush with three-quarters of the marinade. Set aside to marinate for 30 minutes. Barbecue the aubergines, flesh-side down, for 10-15 minutes until soft and charred – keep them moving while they’re cooking to prevent the flesh sticking to the grill.
  3. Mist the skin of the aubergines with cooking spray then carefully turn and barbecue on the other side for 5-8 minutes. Remove from the barbecue and brush the charred tops with a little of the remaining marinade. Arrange on a platter, drizzle with the last of the marinade, then serve garnished with spring onions, a handful of fresh coriander leaves and crispy fried onions.
