Saba is the Japanese word for Pacific mackerel, very commonly consumed throughout the Japan, and here in Singapore, we usually eat this in Japanese restaurants or simply cook at home. Saba is available with an affordable price, if you’ve never tried Saba, you should! This nutritious fish is tasty on its own with a rich flavour, you don’t need to add much seasoning to it, just salt and pepper or some lemon pepper to elevate the taste!
Cooking fish is such a breeze if you could minus the oil from deep-frying or pan-frying. I usually cook Saba using the Ninja Foodi multi-cooker, cook without oil splattering around the kitchen. This all-in-1 pressure cooker + air fryer do more than fry and grill, they simply cook your food for you in a simple machine. If you love fried fish, look no further. This is definitely a worthy investment for you! You can use it to air fry, bake, grill, steam or stir fry fish, it will cook the food just right, no matter what kind of protein/ meat you’re cooking.
The Ninja Foodi multi-cooker that I’m using is a combination of a pressure cooker and air fryer in one pot, it’s super-efficient and time-saving. The heat distribution is even and it heats up real fast compared to my other air fryer. The deep pot could prevent oil/ residues splatter all over the crisping lid making it easy to maintain and clean. Besides pressure cook and air frying, there are other functions such as steam, slow cook, sear/ saute, bake/ roast, grill, and keep warm, just like a portable kitchen with a rice cooker, pressure cooker, air fryer, oven and stovetop functions, reasonable price, and highly versatile.

1. Rub some salt, pepper, and a thin layer of oil or spray some oil on the Saba. Preheat Ninja Foodi GRILL mode 3mins.
You can pan-fry the Saba but I won’t recommend because Saba has a good amount of fat content, your kitchen will “smell oily” after pan-frying the fish. I’d highly recommend to cook this in a smoke-free grill or Ninja Foodi. Here are the two appliances that is good and easy to use at home:

2. Place the Saba on the reversible rack, grill for 8-10 mins or until crisp and golden. Serve right away.
Note: Make sure to pat-dry the Saba with kitchen towel before adding seasoning. Spray some oil on the rack to avoid sticking. You can use GRILL or AIRCRISP mode to cook Saba in the Ninja Foodi.
