Question received – sushi shoyu

Posted on Oct 10, 2011 in Hiroko's Blog

I received an e-mail question about my sushi shoyu recipe in The Sushi Experience from a person who enjoys the book. He says that “the amount of fish flakes instructed in the recipe was very large compared to the volume of shoyu and mirin, producing very little result. Is the recipe correct?” Thank you for the question. The recipe is correct, but I found one incorrect information in the recipe. Yield says 3 cups, but it produces only 2 cups. Sorry for this unpicked mistake. Please remember that it takes about over 40 minutes to drain it completely.
During the process turn over the fish flakes in the strainer several times to encourage the dripping of the sushi shoyu. Do not press it.
