Pacific Saury à la Nage

“Nage” means “swim” in French and a seafood dish with plenty of its juice is called “à la Nage” in French cuisine because seafood looks swimming in the sauce. Sanma-Mizumi from Kinoya Ishinomaki Suisan Inc. is cooked in only water and salt. Even so, it contains so amazing umami-flavour that no necessary to use any stock or white wine in it. Only will be fine with the dish and I’m sure you are surprised at the superb taste.
