Dark, oily, full-flavoured fish, such as mackerel, are very popular in Japan. They are often prepared using this simple cooking technique that might be called "pan-steaming".

Ingredients

1/4 cup soy sauce, low-sodium 65 mL
1/4 cup water 65 mL
3 tbsp mirin (sweet rice wine) 45 mL

1 tbsp rice vinegar 15 mL

Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Method

  1. In a skillet, mix together all the ingredients except the fish. Bring to a boil and simmer over medium heat for about 5 min, uncovered.
  2. Add the fish, skin side down, cover, and simmer until the fish is cooked through (the fish should all be opaque and just flake when prodded with a fork or knife), 7 to 10 min.
  3. Serve the fish on the warmed plates, spooning some sauce on top. Additional grated ginger may be sprinkled on top.
