Furikake-Seared Fish Fish used was Aku, but you can practically use any fish you would like. Recommended: Aku, Ahi, Mahi, Ono 1. Heat oil in pan to medium/medium high 2. Get your desired fish and make sure it’s completely dry 3. Fully chill/toss in freezer for ~10 mins to chill (Makes it easier to not overcook the fish)4. Coat with your favorite furikake.  (This is aku and I used a katsuo-based furikake so that it would match better).  (Katsuo is the Japanese equivalent to aku) 5.
