Story Behind this Recipe
I like mackerel tatsuta age, so I often make it. This time, I tried it with yellow tail. Adding the ginger and garlic reduces the fishy smell. It's one dish that goes well with rice or also works as a drinking appetizer.
The katakuriko absorbs the water, so thoroughly drain the excess moisture from the bowl very, and add the katakuriko just before deep frying. If desired, serve with lettuce or mizuna, and enjoy.
