Ingredients

  • 50 g gomame sardines *Choose ones that have a blue back, silver belly, and are V-shaped.
  • [A]

    • 2 tbsp sugar
    • 1 tbsp soy sauce
    • 1 tsp water
  • 1 tbsp sake

Directions

1

Put half the gomame in a frying pan and toast slowly over low heat, stirring occasionally with cooking chopsticks.

2

When fragrant, take one out with a pair of chopsticks to test if it's done. If it snaps in half when cool, it's done. Remove and toast the remaining gomame.

3

In a wide, shallow pot or frying pan, heat the sauce ingredients. When large bubbles start to form, add the gomame.

4

Quickly mix with cooking chopsticks. Add 1 tablespoon of sake and stir once. Remove from heat, and spread on a tray to cool.
