Easy Fish Recipes

Do you eat fish? In Japan, various types of fish, other seafood, and seaweed have long been a valuable source of protein, but in recent years, meat has become the main source of protein as diets have become more Westernized and cooking has become simpler. Recently, it has been discovered that they contain many effective components for maintaining and improving health in addition to protein, and eating them is being reevaluated. They have excellent nutritional properties and are effective not only as a nutritional supplement, but also in terms of disease prevention and anti-aging.

Today, we will introduce more recipes that include fish using the ingredients you can get at Maido (except sugar). They're very easy to cook. We hope you get to try cooking them!

Grilled Buri (Japanese Amberjack) with Teriyaki Sauce


Grilled Buri (Japanese Amberjack) with Teriyaki Sauce

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 5 minutes

Total time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

1 pinch of salt

1 tbsp of oil

*4 tbsp of soy sauce

*4 tbsp of cooking sake

*2 tbsp of sugar

Some strips of ginger as garnish

Tips:

It tastes amazing as it is, but you could add some extra garnishes such as lemon juice and grated daikon radish.

Directions:

1. Sprinkle salt on the buri, and let stand for 10 minutes. While waiting, mix all the ingredients for the sauce starting with the " * " in a bowl, and cut some strips of ginger. 10 minutes later, wipe off the water from the buri with kitchen paper.


2. Heat a frying pan and add the oil. Cook over low to medium heat for about 2 minutes on each side (4 minutes in total), starting on the side with the skin. Wipe off any excess oil on the pan with a paper towel.

3. Add the sauce that you prepared in a bowl in step 1. Turn up the heat to high (just enough to make the sauce flutter) and shake the pan to mix with the buri. When the sauce gets a bit slimy, it's ready.

4. Serve on a plate, and put some ginger strips on top to finish.
