Non-Fried Mackerel with Thick Starchy Sweet and Sour Sauce Just Using a Fry Pan

A veggie-packed dish that's easy to make and healthy as it's not fried. Even my husband who doesn't eat fish likes this dish.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Mackerel
1
Salt
a small amount each
Sake
1 teaspoon
Katakuriko
about 2 tablespoons
Onion (small)
1
Carrot
1/2
● Ketchup
2 tablespoons
● Vinegar

about 2 tablespoons
Katakuriko slurry
1 teaspoon of katakuriko and 2 teaspoons of water

Steps

1. Julienne the carrot and slice the onion thinly.
2. Fillet the mackerel and then cut it in 8 pieces (I ask the fishmonger to do this for me).
3. Add all ● seasoning ingredients and add the katakuriko with water little by little. When it starts to boil and the sauce thickens, pour over the fish and it is done.
4. Heat a frying pan with olive oil and fry the mackerel from the skin side. Fry both sides and then transfer to a plate.
5. Fry the carrots and onions in the same frying pan until softened.
6. Add all ● seasoning ingredients and add the katakuriko slurry little by little when it starts to boil. When the sauce becomes thick and starchy, pour over the fish.
