Mackerel braised in Miso sauce ( Saba No Miso-Ni)

Mackerel braised in Miso sauce or Saba No Miso-Ni is a Japanese popular home cooked simmered dishes. Miso is used in a variety of cooking from soup, simmered dish, sauce etc. The method of cooking recipe is extremely easy, simply simmer the mackerel in a Miso sauce until becoming full flavored.
The important point is to remove the fish odor. So that you will get a rich and tasty dish.

  1. In my part of Japan we use Miso quite a lot in cooking from Miso Soup and Miso sauce to Miso nikomi udon.
