This is very easy to make and tastes authentically Japanese. My boyfriend, who is very honest about my cooking and whose standards are pretty high, even said it was delicious. I served it with Japanese sesame spinach, miso soup, and rice. His roommate came home later and had some of the fish and asked me how in the world I made such good fish. Broiled it, I said. Couldn't be easier!
