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 65 mL
1/4 cup water 65 mL
3 tbsp mirin (sweet rice wine) 45 mL
1/2 tsp sugar 2 g
1 tbsp rice vinegar 15 mL
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp gingerroot, grated 4 g

Before you start

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

For larger quantities, you will need more than one skillet.

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.
