2 whole horse mackerels.
1 tbsp salt

Scrape off the hard scales at the joint of the tail with knife, scrape the scales of the other part away in short strokes. Insert the tip of knife behind the gill cover, cut the base of the gill and pull the gills out. Makes slit on the side that will face down when served, and scoop out the innards with your hands wash away any remaining innards and blood in the belly with cold water.
Sprinkle salt on the immediately before grilling. Coat the tail, pectoral fins, and dorsal fins heavily with salt (decorative salting).
★ The decorative salting will prevent the fins from scorching and help them retain their shape★
Heat a cooking grill well, and grill the fish. Always grill first the side of fish that will face up when served. When the whole fish about 60% done, turn it over and grill the other side.

In the pass 4 – 5 years wanting to learn more about Japanese food and how they prepared them as an art form instead of something there for you to eat.
