Cooking Basics

Pacific saury - removing innards

When preparing for use in boiled and other dishes, first remove the innards. After descaling, remove the head from just behind the pectoral fin. Place the tip of the knife into this opening, and scrape out the innards. Be sure to give a final rinse with water and dry off before using.

Daikon radish - julienned

Peel the daikon radish and cut into 4 to 5 cm (1.5 to 2 in.) long pieces. Slice into 1 to 2 mm (0.1 in.) thick planks, stack by sliding these gradually, and then slice up into thin sticks from end to end.
