Today, I’m going to introduce “Izakaya recipe”.
It’s called “Karei no nitsuke”.

Karei no nitsuke is a typical Izakaya menu and also a home-cooked meal in Japan.

If you want to try a typical Japanese fish meal, try this recipe!

What’s Karei no Nitsuke?

“Karei” is the name of the fish.
“Nitsuke” means “simmered food with Soy sauce and sugar and sake”.

Karei is an appropriate fish for Nitsuke.
In Japan, you can get this fish at supermarkets.
Here’s the picture of Karei I got this time.

This time, I used “Karei” as a typical menu at Izakaya, but if you can’t find it, you can use other fish instead.
For example, beryx splendens and Yellowtail are my recommendations!

When it starts boiling, add Karei and drop a piece of aluminum foil directly on the fish to cover it. Boil them on low heat for 15 minutes.

Flip the fish and boil them for 5 more minutes.

You can use the surplus sauce

After you serve the Karei, you can use the surplus sauce.
For example, Daikon is perfect for this sauce.

Cut Daikon and put them into the sauce.
And boil it until the color of Daikon turns brown!

Daikon absorbs the delicious sauce and it’s really tasty!!


This taste reminds me of “Buri daikon”!
