Japanese Broiled Mackerel Recipe
- 4 mackerel fillets
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup mirin (Japanese sweet wine)
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1/2 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root
step 1: Rinse fillets, and pat dry with paper towels. In a medium bowl, mix together the soy sauce, mirin, sugar and fresh ginger. Place fillets into the marinade, and let stand for at least 20 minutes.
step 2: Preheat your ovens broiler, or an outdoor grill for high heat. Broil the fillets, basting occasionally, until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 5 to 8 minutes. Serve with a lemon slice or long white radish slice as a garnish.
