Japanese Broiled Mackerel


4 mackerel fillets
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup mirin (Japanese sweet wine)
1 tablespoon white sugar
1/2 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root


Rinse fillets, and pat dry with paper towels. In a medium bowl, mix together the soy sauce, mirin, sugar and fresh ginger. Place fillets into the marinade, and let stand for at least 20 minutes.

Preheat your ovens broiler, or an outdoor grill for high heat. Broil the fillets, basting occasionally, until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 5 to 8 minutes. Serve with a lemon slice or long white radish slice as a garnish.
