Preparing Fried Mejina (Rudder Fish)

Preparing Fried Mejina (Rudder Fish)

This has a different feel from fried horse mackerel. It has quite a refreshing flavor! You'll be able to eat a lot without getting sick of it!


1 fish
Salt and pepper
a small amount
Flour, eggs, panko
as needed
Frying oil
as needed
Cabbage etc. to serve on the side
as needed


1. As for the preparation of the fish, please refer to a recipe that prepares mejina for sashimi. Once you've removed the skin, cut it into bite-sized pieces and season with salt and pepper. (If you'd prefer, you can leave the skin on.)
2. All you have to do is coat them with batter and fry them at 180℃!

Story Behind this Recipe

Someone made this for me at a fisherman's hotel and it was delicious! That's how I decided to make it myself.
