I love grilled saba and I do order this quite often whenever I eat at Japanese restaurants.
It's actually a lot cheaper if you grill this at home. When I dine at the restaurant, I get 1/4 of the fish, but if I cook at home I get one whole fish for the same price. Wow, isn't that very "dai" (means worth it in Cantonese)
This Norwegian blue mackerel is easily available at major supermarket at the frozen division. Cost me around RM16 for one pack. Sometimes there's 3 pieces, sometimes 2 bigger pieces.
I always keep a pack in the freezer as it is one of the easiest dishes to whip up.
Saba Shio @ Grilled Mackerel
Rub mackerel with a little bit of oil. Place it on top of your oven's wire rack, skin side up. Sprinkle salt over. Just a bit will be fine, just to season.
Place a pan underneath the wire rack to catch the drippings.
Grill in oven at 200C until the skin looks golden.
*You might need to flip the fish to grill the flesh. My oven has the function "Grill with fan", so I didn't flip it.
