I added spicy sauce to early season bonito. It tastes great in this unusual arrangement, and goes well with beer or rice.

Story Behind this Recipe

I love the sweet and sour sauce served in Korean restaurants, so I thought I'd make my own.
It works well with any sashimi, but I like it with early season bonito.
