I got a Horse Mackerel Again, but a BIG ONE, this time

Horse Mackerel that I bought in a Super Market in Northern town in JAPAN

When it comes to Horse Mackerel, it always start with getting rid of hard scales First.

Internal Organs were Removed. Several Cuts for Effective Heating in the Grill

They were placed on the tray to go into the Fish Grill in Gas Stove

Well- Done

My Supper Yesterday

Boiled Mackerels with MISO that is Salty Soy Beans Paste

Steamed Sweet Potato

The photo above is yesterday’s. I boiled sweet potato in the pan. Those were the potato that I planted in my garden last year.

Still the Ground is Covered with Snow in my Region

This is a photo of today. I wanted to take a picture of train running, but those local trains do not come so frequently.

Mackerel in the Package about 4 USD

Today I bought the fish Mackerel. That was not “Horse Mackerel”, but simply “Mackerel”. This is Japan, but we usually see on the supermarket shelves, “Mackerel from Norway”. The mackerel in the photo was not from Norway, but from an Island of Sado which is the major island of Niigata Prefecture.

Mackerel being Boiled with Miso

I boiled them with Miso which is salty soy bean paste for seasoning. Not only Miso, I used also a little bit of sugar, ginger slices, pieces of red pepper, and Japanese Sake for seasoning.

The white slices accompanying with Mackerel is white part of green onion.
