Saba fish (also known as mackerel!) are great for grilling or pan frying as they have a good amount of fat content. The fillets cook until the skin turn crispy and are normally placed over a bed of sliced onions on a hot plate to sizzle in the sweet and savory garlic soy sauce.
When served straight on the hot plate, it definitely makes for a visually pleasing and delicious dish. Give this simple recipe a try, if you don’t have a hot plate just stir fry the sliced onions along with the sauce in a pan and add the crispy Saba fillets on top when serving.
