Ingredients (4 Servings)

>>Please see the instructions on measuring spoons and cups.

  • 500g Yellowtail Slices
  • 1/2 Japanese Radish (Daikon)
  • 2 pieces Ginger
  • Some Shredded Ginger
  • [Simmering Sauce]
  • 2 cups (400ml) Water
  • 1/2 cup (100ml) Sake
  • 3 tablespoons (25~30g) Sugar

Cooking Procedures

Precook the Yellowtail:
Cut the yellowtail into several large pieces and sprinkle a pinch of salt over them. Leave the slices for a while. Then, place the slices into a pot of boiling water. When the flesh turns slightly white, place them immediately into a bowl if iced water (Do not overboil the yellowtail). This process helps remove any unwanted flavor in the fish.

Parboil the Japanese Radish:
Peel the Japanese Radish thickly, and cut it into large-size pieces.
Place them into a pot of the rice-water (the remaining water you obtained after washing rice grains). If such water is not available, substitute normal water for it. Bring it to a boil and simmer the slices for 20-30 minutes. Then, drain the slices using a strainer, and rinse them well. While parboiling the Japanese Radish, slice one piece of ginger into thin slices and shred the other piece into thin strips.

Prepare the simmering sauce and add the yellowtail & Japanese radish:
Pour the sake into a pot and turn on the burner. Bring it to a boil and evaporate the alcohol in the sake. Then, add the water, sugar, and soy sauce. Stir the sauce gently to dissolve the sugar. After it comes to a boil, add the yellowtail and Japanese radish slices, and distribute the sliced ginger. Cook them on high heat until they come to a boil.

Place a lid on the top and simmer the ingredients::

After they come to a boil, place a small lid directly on top of the ingredients, and simmer them on medium heat for about 20 minutes. While cooking, rearrange the ingredients in the pot to cook them evenly, and let them absorb the sauce well. After they are cooked well, arrange them onto a plate, and also top with the ginger strips.
