I love Rumaki (well actually bacon on a stick) but I detest chicken livers, this is a quick and easy solution to my problem.

  • Servings: makes 12 Rumaki
  • Prep Time: 1 hour
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 25 minutes


3 Tbsp Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1 1" Piece Fresh Ginger, peeled and micro-planed
12 Water Chestnuts
6 Strips Bacon, cut into halves
12 Long Tooth Picks


1. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, brown sugar, and ginger. Add water chestnuts and toss to coat; place in refrigerator to let marinate for 1 hour.

2. Heat oven to 425° F.

3. Strain chestnuts, reserving the marinade.

4. Pour marinade into a 1-quart saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat; set aside.

5. Place 1 slice of bacon on a cutting board, then top with 1 of the water chestnuts. Wrap bacon around the chestnut; skewer bacon in place with a toothpick piercing through the roll. Repeat process with remaining water chestnuts, and bacon until they are all used up.

6. Transfer Rumaki to a foil-lined sheet tray and bake, basting occasionally with the marinade, until bacon is golden brown, about 25 minutes. Remove to a serving platter .

7. Serve warm or at room temperature with your favourite dipping sauce.

Helpful Tips:

increase the servings by increasing the number of water chestnuts, strips of bacon and, when necessary, the marinade ingredients.
