|Rice is Japanese brown rice so it's not as brown as regular brown rice|
Here's some photos of the event and the food I made. People enjoyed the food and also the event!
Let's get back to the the three flavor sauce. It's super easy! When I say it's easy, it is indeed easy. It's sort of like a semi-homemade sauce I would say. Usually, this sauce is eaten with deep fried (crispy) whole fish. However, whole fish and I don't get along well so I went with fillets. I wanted to get Tilapia but there wasn't one available at my favorite seafood store -Uwajimaya. They had fresh Dover sole fillets that day. I went with those. Dover sole is a sustainable fish and has a mild, buttery sweet flavor and versatility. Instead of deep frying it, I broiled it for a healthier version and served it over Japanese brown rice. I recommend serving it over rice for a better taste. Rice balanced out the bold flavor of the sauce and complimented the delicate flavor of the fish.
It's called three flavors because the sauce is supposed to have three flavors - sour, sweet, and salty. The flavors will compliment one another and balance the flavor out.
