Japanese dish, AJI-cutlets(fish cutlets) are Japanese people’s dish.  We eat them with rice and Miso soup for lunch often.  The procedure of cooking is the same as Wiener schnitzels.   As mackerel or sardine are low-priced and good for health,  they are very popular in Japan. Moreover, fry such as cutlets or croquettes is well-seen Japanese food.

I remember my trip to Portugal where I had charcoal-grilled sardine for lunch.  I have never seen the similar grilled fish since then in Europe.
