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

Before you start
Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.
- 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.
- 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.
- Serve the fish on the warmed plates, spooning some sauce on top. Additional grated ginger may be sprinkled on top.
