Recipe created by tadasuke tomita


  • Seabream 2 slices (about 200g)
  • Shishito pepper 6 peppers
  • Sansho (zanthoxylum piperitum) 5-6 leaves


  • Yamasa Sendo-no-Itteki (Drop of Freshness) Gen-en Soy Sauce 1 and a half tablespoons
  • Mirin (Japanese rice wine) 1 and a half tablespoons
  • Sake 1 and a half tablespoons


If the fish is large cut into two pieces. Add two pinches of salt to the fish, one on each side. Let it sit for 30 minutes, and then soak up the excess water. Cut the ends off the shishito peppers and cut a thin opening in each.

Mix together A and place the fish into it for around 40 minutes. Don’t throw the sauce away after the fish is done marinating.

Warm up the fish grill and put the seabream and shishito on it, grilling it on both sides. Take the shishito pepper out once it’s become darker in color. When the seabream seems cooked use a brush to apply the sauce. Grill it once more and when the surface is cooked apply the sauce again. Repeat this process about 3 times until it’s well done and has a sweet savory smell, then garnish it with minced sansho.
