My Mother's Too-Easy Simmered Flounder

My Mother's Too-Easy Simmered Flounder

I always had the idea that simmered fish was cumbersome, so was surprised to learn how easy it is. Thanks, mom!

Ingredients: 4 servings

Flounder fillets
4 cuts
Sake
1/2 cup (100 ml)
Soy sauce
1/4 cup (50 ml)
Mirin
1/4 cup (50 ml)

Steps

1. Combine all of the ingredients except for the flounder in a frying pan, then bring to a simmer.
2. Put the flounder into the pan with the sauce, cover with a drop lid (or a sheet of aluminium foil), then simmer for 10 minutes.

Story Behind this Recipe

My mother taught this to me since I had never simmered fish before.
