Daikon Steak with Wakame Pesto

Serves 4

Slow cooked daikon is a key way to enjoy the daikon flavor. It brings out the sweetness. You can eat daikon steak simply with salt and pepper, but wakame sauce is a fabulous taste combination and provides double the alkalizing effect. 



  • 1 daikon, peeled and sliced into 3 cm (1 in) chunks
  • 1 tbsp neutral taste oil
  • Lemon zest, for garnish
  • Wakame pesto (see recipe on page 198) Creamy wakeme sauce (see recipe on page 198)


  1. Heat a flying pan over a medium heat.Pour in the oil and place the daikon then reduce the heat to low.Place a lid on the pan and cook slowly for 15 minutes or until golden.Turn over the daikon and cook for a further 15 minutes.
  2. Serve the cooked daikon with the wakame sauces and lemon zest.

When daikon is cooked very slowly, it will bring up its sweetness. You can also cook in the oven after coating the daikon with oil.
