  • 100 gm black fungi
  • ½ tsp fine salt
  • 250 ml(1 cup) brown rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tsp finely grated ginger
Soy glaze
  • 60 ml(¼ cup) light soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp mirin
  • 2 tbsp honey


  1. Bring a charcoal barbecue to high heat. For pickles, combine cucumber, daikon and fungi in a bowl. Bring remaining ingredients and 60ml water to a simmer in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar, then pour onto vegetables and set aside over ice to chill and pickle while you make yakiton. Pickles will keep well refrigerated for up to 3 days.
  2. For soy glaze, combine ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
  3. Thread 2-3 pieces of pork onto each of 12 skewers. Brush with glaze, then grill, turning and brushing occasionally, until golden brown and cooked medium (2-4 minutes). Sprinkled with Togarashi and serve with pickles.
