Japanese-Style Trout with Dashi

Food and Wine

1 cup soy sauce

1 cup mirin

½ cup sugar

½ cup unseasoned rice vinegar

1 teaspoon instant dashi

2 carrots, finely julienned

2 leeks, white and light green parts only, finely julienned

Four 6-ounce rainbow trout fillets, bones removed

Steamed sushi rice and crumbled nori, for serving

In a medium saucepan, bring the soy sauce, mirin, sugar and vinegar to a boil. Simmer over moderate heat until the glaze is reduced to about 1½ cups, about 10 minutes.



Meanwhile, in another medium saucepan, combine the dashi with 1½ cups of water and bring to a boil. Add the carrots and leeks and simmer just until crisp-tender, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and let stand.

Serves: 4
