This is my favourite dish at Akashi but strangely, I have never thought of making it till today. And it wasn’t even my idea to do so , it was my mom. Google is brilliant, with just two words: ‘saba’ and ‘miso’, I found the recipe online and it turned out pretty, I would say that the taste is similar to the Akashi version. The only difference is that the saba fish is of a better quality at Akashi. It’s a really simple dish and I would want to make it in London; the only problem is i might not be able to find saba fish even in Chinatown. I will have to check and see.
