Tazukuri is a traditional New Year's food, which is basically little fishes drenched in a teriyaki sauce. Disgusting if you ask me, but my family likes it, so I make it. It is supposed to bring you "good harverst" - that is, good luck in business in the New Year.


In gredients:

2 cups dried sardines 
2 tbsps sugar 
2 tbsps soysauce 
1 tsp mirin 
2 tsps white sesame seeds

Put the dried sardines in a frying pan and fry well. Put sugar, soy sauce, and mirin in a pan and put on high heat. When the sugar mixture is thickened, add the dried sardines. Stop the heat and stir well.

Sprinkle the sesame seeds, if you like, I just didn't have any.

Cool it before serving.
