Grilled Seafood with Ponzu Sauce



Yaki Yaki San


4 - 6


  • 6 pieces jumbo shrimp, shelled
  • 4 oz (120 g) salmon filet for sashimi, sliced
  • 4 oz (120 g) calamari legs
  • Vegetables and mushrooms of your choice (such as asparagus, baby bell peppers, enoki mushrooms, etc.) (optional)
  • Sea salt and pepper
  • Vegetable oil for the grill top
  • 8 oz (240 g) daikon radish, grated
  • 1/2 cup ponzu sauce
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Thinly-sliced green onion, daikon sprouts, thinly-sliced garlic, and lemon wedges (optional)


  1. Season the seafood lightly with salt and pepper.
  2. Set a portable gas stove on a dining table. Set Yaki Yaki San on the stove, and pour water into the reservoir up to about 80% full.
  3. Heat Yaki Yaki San over high heat for 5 minutes. Turn down the heat to medium.
  4. By using a brush or folded paper towel, rub the oil all over the grill top.
  5. Place the seafood on the grill and cook until your desired doneness. Grill vegetables, if you like, too.
  6. Serve with the ponzu sauce and grated daikon. You can also make lettuce wraps, too.

Each person gets a bowl of dipping sauce. Stir in some grated daikon or you can also use it as a topping. Lettuce and other condiments can provide other serving variations.
