Method

  1. Pour the soy, mirin and sugar in a small saucepan with the lemon juice. Bring to the boil and simmer for 5 mins until slightly syrupy. Remove and set aside.
  2. Put the rice in a large saucepan and cover with water, about 450ml. Bring to the boil, then turn down to a simmer. Cook for about 5 mins – the rice should have absorbed about 3⁄4 of the water. Place the fish fillets on top.
  3. Sprinkle each with ginger, chilli and a slice of lemon. Season, cover and cook for about 5 mins, until the fish and rice are cooked through. Serve with a drizzle of the sauce and sprinkled with the spring onions.

Really nice, easy and quick to make. I followed the mirin tip above and used white vinegar instead (I'm not sure if rice vinegar and white vinegar are the same). However, rather than letting it simmer for five minutes I had add another 10-15 minutes to get a sticky, caramelized sauce.

This was very easy and stunning flavours, very fresh and light! We used rice vinegar instead of Kirin but didnt add more sugar but don't think it needed it.
