Golden Marinated Hiramasa

Pin This Share on Tumblr Share on Google Plus Email This Yum

This is another appetising Japanese dish. It is tasty and easy... serve with steam rice and miso soup for a complete meal. As one could tell ... I love to use Hiramasa in my cooking as I find that it is sweet, firm and quite versatile to use in any Asian or Western cooking. If Hiramasa is not available... then Mackerel is an excellent alternatives... happy yum..yum.. :) 
  • Hiramasa fillets - cut into 1cm thickness
  • salt
  • oil for deep frying
  • corn flour for dusting
  • spring onion for garnishing
for the marinate
  • 15g fresh ginger- grate the ginger and squeeze out the juice (about 1 1/2 teaspoon)
  • 3 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoon sushi vinegar/ mirin/ sake
Mix the marinate in a bowl. Arrange Hiramasa in a deep dish. Pour the marinate over the fish and leave it in the fridge for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Slowly heat the oil for deep frying. Dust the fish with cornflour and shake off the excess. Deep fry the hiramasa until golden. Drain on a plate and garnish with spring onion. Serve with steam rice.
