"Japanese marinade sauce gives a lovely taste and texture to broiled mackerel. Yellow tail, tuna or salmon are also good for this recipe. Easy, exotic!"

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

This is a really good sauce! I used it to marinate a whole fish that had slits cut on the side. I also added a bit more ginger, only because I do like my ginger :) I steamed the fish and with...

I was hoping for something more crisp out of the broiler, but alas the fish came out with a soft texture, even with extra cooking time. Salt (a lot) helps, but I'll pass this recipe next time a...

This sauce is soooo awesome. I used salmon & broiled in oven - it caramelized the sauce & made the fish so tasty, especially over rice and steamed veggies. I used light soy sauce. Also boiled...

We were given some free "just-caught" mackerel by some local fishermen - I had never eaten or cooked mackerel before - and this was a very tasty recipe! I cut slits in the skin of the mackerel a...

The sauce was good, but it was a bit too sweet for our taste since the mirin was already sweet to begin with. The taste also didn't stay with the fish, it was rather bland unless you dip it into...

This was sooo good and easy! I omitted the extra sugar and added a tsp of chinese chili paste as well. Grilled it, basted it and ate it over steamed rice with Japanese broccoli. My husband wante...

This recipe worked great on salmon. I used some of the cooked sauce on white rice and it was delicious. The salmon turned out juicy and well cooked.

Very good! I find mackerel very fatty, and this seemed to cut down on the greasy taste! Easy to prepare too!

Very easy to make and delicious.

This was a great marinade for the mackerel! We absolutely loved it. We cooked the fish on the grill and it had an amazing taste. Thanks!
