4, Add in 2 tsp light soy sauce, 1 tsp dark soy sauce, 2 tsp sugar and warm water can just cover the fishes.

5, Bring to boil, then turn to low heat. Cover with lid and let it simmer for 10 mins.

6, Off the lid, and turn up the heat to reduce the sauce.

Serve with hot rice. Easy and yummy.

Oven-Roasted Saba Fish

Saba fish is very popular in Japan. And Saba fish fillet is also very commonly seen here in Singapore. I buy them sometimes.

This fish can be easily roasted by oven.

1. Preheat oven to 200 degree C.

2. Season fish fillet with salt and black pepper on both sides.

3. Into the oven for 15-18 mins. Because my husband likes the crispy fish skin, so when I put the fish into oven, I usually set the skin side up. At the last 5 mins, I will turn the fish over and place lemon slice on the fish.

Very easy to cook.
