Red Snapper Nitsuke step by step

  1. Gently descale the fish with a knife – it's best to use a descaling knife, but any sharp knife will do..
  2. Remove the head and innards from the red snapper and wash out the inside with water. Dry the skin with kitchen paper and make a cross cut on both sides..
  3. Put the kombu, water, soy sauce, mirin, sake and ginger into a pot and boil on full heat..
