Kushiage is, simply put, deep fried food served on sticks, but it has been elevated to an art form by chefs in Japan. Various meats, seafood, and vegetables are skewered onto thin bamboo sticks, dipped into melted butter, coated with breadcrumbs, then deep-fried to a golden crisp. Immediately before eating, you should dip the stick into the provided Japanese-style BBQ sauce.
