Grilled Pike Mackerel (Sanma)
We serve this one whole, with head, bones, even guts intact. It's a bit of a labor to eat it, but oh so worth it. The bitterness of the guts is better than any sauce.
Sanma represents the season of autumn in Japan. There is even a saying, "Do not let the wife eat the autumn eggplant and pike mackerel". A terrible saying for the wives, but it is that good.
