Saba Shioyaki (Grilled Mackerel) Recipe-

  1. Take a proper sized, good quality frying pan, and cover its inside bottom with aluminum foil.
  2. Grate the pickled Daikon radish, and set aside.
  3. If you are using a whole mackerel, clean and fillet it.
  4. Now chop each fillet in half. Liberally salt both sides of the fillets.
  5. Heat the frying pan up to medium high, and lightly oil the surface of the aluminum foil.
  6. Skin side down, place the fillets into the pan. Fry for 7-8 minutes, then flip over and fry for an additional 6 to 7 minutes, until cooked through and browned on both sides.
  7. Place the fish on an attractive serving platter.
  8. To serve your Saba Shioyaki with a traditional flair, garnish with some grated radish beside each fillet, and drizzle a little ginger flavored soy sauce over the radish.
