The Delicious Sea Perch of Gion Sasaki

This video shows the "Suzuki no Kawa-pari Ishigamayaki" at Gion Sasaki. Roughly translated it means "Crispy Skinned Sea Perch Cooked in a Brick Oven."

Gion Sasaki opened in 1997 in Ponto-cho, Gion, and after moving once in Gion, opened its current location in 2006 in Gion, where many old establishments are still standing.
The restaurant has been awarded three stars in the Michelin Guide.

The sea perch used, called "suzuki" (スズキ) in Japanese, has many different names, including "seigo" (セイゴ) and "fukko" (フッコ) to name a couple.
The sea perch is served with Manganji togarashi, baby corn, corn kakiage for garnish.
The sea perch is cut in three pieces and salted and left to rest.
The skewered sea perch is grilled in a brick oven and served with Manganji togarashi sauce.
The sea perch is crispy around the edges, moist and half-cooked inside after being baked in the brick oven, and it is accompanied by the aroma of Manganji togarashi, which gives it a deep flavor.
Be sure to check out the video to see how it's cooked.
