Monahan's Seafood Market | Fresh Whole Fish, Fillets, Shellfish, Recipes, Catering & Lunch Counter-Ann Arbor, Michigan

Serves 2

  • 2 6-8 oz. mackerel fillets
  • Daikon radish, finely grated, about 3-4 T
  • Sea salt
  • Soy sauce
  • 2 lemon wedges

Pre heat oven to 400º. Pat the fillets dry with a paper towel. Sprinkle sea salt over both sides of the fillets and let cure for around 20 minutes. Grate daikon radish, drain or squeeze a lot of the juice out, set aside.

Wipe salt off of fillets with paper towel. Place fillets skin side down on a lightly oiled broiling pan. Bake on top rack of oven for 5 minutes. Flip fillets so skin side is up. Turn oven up to broil and brown (1 minute or so, keep close watch, the fillets will brown quickly).

Serve skin side up with a pile of daikon on the side. Add soy sauce to grated daikon if desired. Garnish with lemon wedge.
