Saba Zushi

May 6, 2015

I order fresh fish from Tsukiji market once a month and recently I bought Seki Mackerel, which is mackerel from Saganoseki. The fish is considered the best example of saba available.  Just as the way the Chef Shiro from Shiro's taught me, I filleted the fish, sprinkled salt like snow, and left the fish for 2-3 hours.  After leaving the fish for 20 minutes in water, I cut the skin off and left it another 1-2 hours in rice vinegar.  It turned out to be wonderful!!
