Simmered Pacific Saury with Ginger

Simmered Pacific Saury with Ginger

I love this since I can even eat the bones. Also, it's so easy as you can let your pressure cooker to do the work.


Pacific saury
1 thumb (julienned)
Soy sauce, Mirin, Sake
1 1/2 tablespoons each
2 rounded teaspoons
1 tablespoon


1. Remove the head, tail, and guts from the pacific saury. Cut into 3 to 4 pieces. Quickly wash in salted water, and pat dry with kitchen paper.
2. Put the ginger and the seasonings in a pressure cooker, and place the pacific saury. Add enough water until the sauce reaches 1/2 of the pacific saury's height.
3. Cover with the lid, and bring up to pressure, then turn the heat down to low, and cook for about 20 minutes.
4. Simmer to thicken the sauce a little before serving.

Story Behind this Recipe

I love user Miichi's "Simmered Pacific Saury with Ginger", and I changed the recipe to make half the amount with 2 pacific saury. My husband doesn't like it if he can't eat down to the bones. User Amanusa told me that she could make this with 4 saury as well. Thank you for trying this recipe!
