Saury delicious when cooked with pickled plum / JAPANESE HOME COOKING

Bookmark and Share
ALTHOUGH A poor saury harvest has been in the news lately, sanma is still a great autumn flavor not to be missed. For a change, try cooking saury in a pot, guts and all. Choose fresh fish with clear eyes and solid abdomen.
"The key is to remove the excess blood to avoid the fishy smell," says cooking expert Atsuko Matsumoto.
If you use a pressure cooker, "even the bone will become soft," she says.
Plums pickled only with salt are recommended for use in cooking.

(Saury with pickled plum)

INGREDIENTS
(serves four)

* 3 saury
* 2 pickled plums (umeboshi)
* 1 red pepper
* 2/3 cup water
* Seasoning (3 Tbsp each of sake and mirin sweet sake, 2 tsp sugar, 2 Tbsp vinegar, 2.5 Tbsp soy sauce)
* 10 grams dried kelp (konbu) (10x10 cm piece)
* Ginger and Japanese leek (naganegi)

METHOD

Cut off the head and tail of saury. Then cut each fish into two or three pieces depending on the size. Rinse and immerse in saltwater with the saline content of seawater (about 3 percent salt) for four to five minutes.

Drain and pat dry with a paper towel.

Cut ginger and leek into strips along the fiber, immerse in water to make them crisp.

Put water, seasoning and red pepper in a pot and bring to a boil. Add kelp that has been dabbed with water and line the saury pieces on top. Tear pickled plum into small pieces and add with the pits.

Close the lid and let the pot simmer over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes.

Avoid burning the fish. When using a pressure cooker, cook for 10 minutes after it reaches full pressure, turn off the heat and leave it until the pressure falls.

Serve the saury on a plate, garnish with sliced ginger and leek.
