Tips:
-Enjoy the dish with a variety of flavors, such as sliced yuzu citrus peels, shichimi togarashi (a mixture of red pepper and six other spices) or julienne strips of mioga ginger.
-If sardine paste is available, it may be convenient to use this instead of fresh sardines.
-Instead of salt, try 2 tablespoons of soy sauce or 2 tablespoons of miso paste. Find your favorite flavour!

Sardines:
Sardines were traditionally a common fish in Japan that was caught in great volume. However, the fishing of true sardines has decreased since peaking in 1988, and its price has soared. Common methods of eating sardines include: as sashimi, broiled with salt, fried, as tempura, or cooked in soy sauce. 

Japanese Liquid Measures:
