Sea Bream Simmered Offcuts

1 Sea bream head
2 tbsp Mirin
2 tbsp Sake
200 ml Water
1 1/2 tbsp Sugar
2 tbsp Soy sauce


Cut the head down the middle vertically, and remove the scales. Bring the water to a boil, immerse the fish in the boiling water, then rinse immediately in cold water. Clean the scales and cut into bite-sized pieces. In a pan, combine 1 cup of water, the mirin, and sake, then bring to a boil. Once it boils, add the fish and sugar. Cover with a drop lid, and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add the soy sauce and simmer until the broth reduces to 1/3 in volume. After reducing the broth to 1/3, remove the lid, tilt the pan to spoon the liquid over the fish, producing a nice color. When it looks good, it's done. Turn off the heat and serve.
