I love hosting.
I enjoy setting up my dining table, cooking for friends and chit chatting away over a cuppa.
Just the other day, out of the blue, i asked bestie to come over for a very simple lunch.. just because i had quite a number of saba (mackerel) fillets in the fridge and they are bestie’s favourite! :)
Personally, i much prefer the fresh saba fillets. Frozen ones just won’t do. Fresh ones we acquire from the wet market are the best! However, they are only sold as whole but the fish mongers will gladly fillet them for you if you were to ask :)
Grilled Saba with Terriyaki
(for 2 persons)
2 saba (mackerel) fillets
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp terriyaki sauce *optional
1.preheat oven to 200c
2. marinate the fillets with salt and rub the oil all over the fish for 10 mins
3. with the skin side up, grill the fish for 5-10 mins or till the skin browns. remember not to grill for too long otherwise the fillet may be too dry
4. drizzel with the terriyaki sauce just before serving
5. serve immediately with a slice of lemon and a bowl of short grain rice topped with nori
Note : because the fillets i had were fresh, i didn’t bother marinating them with terriyaki beforehand. the natural flavor was good enough for me :)
Apart from grilled saba with rice, i also made us some kick-ass cold soba but that’s for another day!
So… stay tuned!
ps : can i just rant a little? *sniffs* after re-installing the windows, my PS3 went bonkers! i can no longer do photo editing. the colours of the photo appear in PS3 differ greatly than the original ones. how absurb can it get?!?! because i couldn’t wait anymore, these photos in this entry are all un-touched, saved for the watermark :((
