Story Behind this Recipe

I stock various canned foods, and always have 5 cans of mackerel in the house. It is very useful and I use it for chirashizushi and simmered dishes etc. I often cook Chinese cabbage without water. I used the flavor of the canned mackerel for seasoning, and it was a delicious dish that went well with rice.
