Japanese Broiled Mackerel
- 4 mackerel fillets
- 1/4 C. soy sauce
- 1/4 C. mirin (Japanese sweet wine)
- 1 Tbs. white sugar
- 1/2 Tbs. grated fresh ginger root
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. 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 5-8 minutes. Serve with a lemon slice or long white radish slice as a garnish.
