Delicious Sweet-Spicy Sauce Teriyaki Sanma (Pacific Saury)

Adding gochujang makes it spicy and very delicious. Since it's still delicious even when served cold, it's good as a bento side dish.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Pacific saury (sanma)
★Soy sauce
2 to 2 1/2 tablespoons
3 tablespoons
3 tablespoons
1/2 tablespoon
1-2 teaspoons
Roasted sesame seeds
as needed
2 teaspoons
Juice from grated ginger
1 teaspoon
as needed
Cake flour
as needed
Vegetable oil
as needed


1. Fillet the Pacific saury into 3 slices. Sprinkle with the grated ginger juice and sake. Combine the ★ ingredients in a bowl, and set aside.
2. Add the dry ingredients (the ratio of cake flour to katakuriko should be 1:1) in a plastic bag. Coat the fish fillets with them, and shake off the excess flour.
3. Heat a frying pan, and add a generous amount of oil. Start pan-frying the skin side of the fish fillets. When finished, pour in the ★ flavouring sauce, and coat the fish in it. This will make the fish lustrous.
4. Serve on a plate, and sprinkle with white sesame seeds.
5. This is a recipe for homemade gochujang (Recipe ID: 1639252). It uses less red hot peppers than usual, so even people who don't like spicy food can eat it.
6. The amount of the flavouring ingredients will change depending on the spiciness (or sweetness) of the gochujang. Please adjust the taste so it's not too spicy.
