I served it with Sushi Rice (Japanese Rice) and it was very good. I found that 1 tsp salt is too much because there is a lot of salt in Soy sauce already. I think it is better not to add salt ...

This was the worst fish I have ever tasted. It was tough and much too salty even though I did not add salt. My husband is a died in the wool fish eater did not like this at all.
