Aji no Nanbanzuke (Horse Mackerel Marinated in Sweet Vinegar Sauce) - Video Recipe

Nanbanzuke is a Japanese home-cooked meal with deep fried meat or fish, marinated in sweet and spicy vinegar sauce.


Aji (horse mackerel) is in season in Japnan from May to July :)
You can substitute it with other fish or chicken, too!

Aji no Nanbanzuke (Horse Mackerel Marinated in Sweet Vinegar Sauce)

Difficulty: Medium
Time: 30min
Number of servings: 4

8 fillets horse mackerel = 400g (14oz.) *other fish or chicken is OK
3 tbsp. sesame oil
100g (3.5oz.) onion
120g (4.2oz.) color peppers (green/red/orange/yellow)
1 dried red chili pepper
* 4 tbsp. vinegar (rice or cereal)
* 3 tbsp. soy sauce
* 2 tbsp. sugar
* 50ml Kombu Dashi soup stock

1. Thinly slice onion and color peppers. Boil for just under a minute to remove the bad smell and bitter taste. Then drain well in a colander.
2. Slice the horse mackerel fillets diagonally into pieces. Dust both sides with salt and flour. Heat sesame oil in a frying pan. Cook both side until crisp, golden and cooked through. Transfer to a flat dish. *You can of course deep fry the horse mackerel.
3. Thinly slice dried red chili pepper. Mix the marinade and the dried red chili pepper. Then add the vegetables and toss. Pour it over the horse mackerel and marinade for over 10 minutes, then serve.

After 10 minutes, fish meat is very soft. After a day, the flavor soaks well and the fish meat becomes firm (condensed). Both are delicious! You can keep it in the fridge for 2-3 days.
