Very simple yet tasty mackerel recipe idea! No wonder a perfect dish for bento lunch box :)

vegetable oil for frying

1. Pull out the mackerel bones with tweezers if any. Then cut it diagonally into an inch-wide pieces.
2. Marinate mackerel with A for about 15 minutes.
3. Dry the mackerel with paper towels and lightly cover with flour, coat with beaten egg white, and coat the skin side with sesame seeds (black & white mixed together).

Egg white batter keeps the UMAMI of mackerel and enables it to be coated with sesame seeds.
