This is perfect! Cooks fast, crispy outside and tender inside, so flavourful and easy. Taken from a Japanese recipes website.

The marinade has a subtle flavour, but it is delicious all the same. To be honest I think this would be good without the flour and thrown on the grill. Would probably add a little more garlic next time but that's just personal preference.
