Easy, Rich, Simmer Buri Yellowtail and Daikon Radish

Easy, Rich, Simmer Buri Yellowtail and Daikon Radish

I created an easy to make and rich Buri-daikon (simmered yellowtail and daikon radish), which was inspired by an Izu specialty, cooked alfonsino.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Precut yellowtail fillet
2 slices
Daikon radish
5cm (as you like)
Shiitake mushrooms (optional)
Ginger (sliced in advance)
3 cm (as you like)
Soy sauce
4 tablespoons
30 to 40g ( 3 to 4 tablespoons )
Yuzu citrus or julienned ginger for garnishing
As needed
Salt (to prep the yellowtail)
As needed


1. Prep the yellowtail to remove the fishy odor. Sprinkle salt on the fish and pour hot water over.
2. Peel the skin of the daikon radish and slice into 1 cm quarters.
3. Microwave the daikon radish at 500w for 1 minute to shorten the cooking time. This process is not necessary.
4. Mix soy sauce, sugar, sake and water in a pot.
5. Add the fish, daikon radish, shiitake mushrooms and ginger to the pot and cover with a drop lid (otoshibuta) and cook (first in medium heat then to low).
6. Simmer until the sauce is reduced, and it is ready. Garnish with yuzu or julienned ginger.
