Classic Amberjack and Daikon Radish in a Frying Pan

This is really simple to prepare in a frying pan. There's no prep work involved, but it has a well-developed taste.

Ingredients: 3 servings

Amberjack (buri)
300 g
Daikon radish
600 g
a pinch
to taste
100 ml
☆Soy sauce
3 tablespoons
2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
100 ml
Green onions or scallions
to taste


1. Sprinkle the amberjack with salt on both sides and let sit for 20 minutes. Rinse with water and dry off with paper towels. Cut the daikon radish into 1 cm wide half moons.
2. Put the daikon radish into a silicon steamer or a dish. Cover with a lid and microwave for 7 minutes at 600 W.
3. Add sesame oil to a frying pan. Cook the amberjack over low heat until it browns slightly. Turn off the heat and wipe the excess oil off the pan. Add the daikon radish and ginger to the pan.
4. Add all of the ☆ ingredients and heat over medium. When it comes to a simmer, cover with a drop lid. Simmer over low heat for 10 minutes while ladling the broth over the top until the flavors have been absorbed.
5. Finish by topping with finely chopped green onions.
