DIRECTIONS

  • Tear off the sardine head by hand, remove entrails and clean thoroughly in water.
  • Pat dry with paper and cut into 2-3 pieces crosswise.
  • Bring sake and vinegar to a boil in a non-reactive saucepan.
  • Arrange sardines in pot, add ginger and simmer very gently for 10 minutes with a lid placed RIGHT ON the sardines.
  • This is called the"dropped lid technique" and allows the flavours to distribute evenly, but stops the delicate fish breaking up.
  • Then, add the soy sauce and continue simmering until scarcely any liquid is left.
  • Remove from the heat and allow to cool to room temperature before serving.
