1 Cut the mackerel diagonally into 2-cm wide pieces.

Marinate the mackerel for 5 to 10 minutes until it has absorbed almost all of the marinade.

Make a vertical cut down the center, but not to do deeply. Remove the core.
Spread out the leek. Lay it neatly and cut it into juliennes.
Soak the juliennes in water for 5 to 10 minutes.
Drain them well just before serving.

5 Cover the mackerel pieces with potato starch and deep-fry them.

6 Toss the mackerel in the miso and sesame sauce.
