Horse mackerel sashimi tossed in mustard flavored marinade.
Simply dress the fish in marinade, and it's good to go!

Ingredients: 2 servings

Horse mackerel (sashimi quality)
150 g
a scant 1 teaspoon
●Grated onion
25 - 30 g
EX olive oil
2 tablespoons
●White wine vinegar or rice vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons
●Lemon juice
up to 3 teaspoons (to taste)
●Grainy mustard
1-2 teaspoons
1 teaspoon
●Grated garlic
1/2 teaspoon
●Consommé soup stock granules
2 pinches
●Bay leaf
●Black pepper
a small amount
Dried Italian herb mix
to taste (optional)
For finishing: EV olive oil ☆ finely chopped onion or red onion
to taste


1. In this recipe, I used filleted small horse mackerel (with no skin). Combine the ● ingredients in a bowl.
2. Comparing a fillet of horse mackerel I used to a medium egg. 6 fillets of horse mackerel weighed about 150 g. Remove the small fish bones.
3. Sprinkle salt evenly on both sides of the fish and set aside for 10 to 15 minutes. Be careful not to leave them for too long. Since the fillets are small, they will be too salty if you leave them for too long.
4. Rinse and pat dry. Cut into about 3 cm wide pieces.
5. Toss the fish from Step 4 in the ● marinade. Serve, or let sit for a while if you prefer.
6. Transfer to a platter. If you like, garnish with finely chopped onion and drizzle in a little olive oil / lemon juice to taste (the fish in the picture is garnished with red onion).

Story Behind this Recipe

I tried making the marinated sashimi that my dad, who loves fishing and sake, used to make me at home.
