How to make “Chan-chan yaki”(easy salmon miso Japanese dish)


“Chan-chan-yaki” is a local dish of Hokkaido in Japan.
This is generally made by adding miso to salmon and vegetables such as cabbage and grilling them on an iron plate.
There is a record that more than 80 years ago, a fisherman in Hokkaido cooked on an iron plate made of metal barrels.It is said that “chan-chan” comes from the sound of a spatula colliding with an iron plate when baking, the Japanese word meaning dad”chan”, or the onomatopoeia “chacha”, which means “quick”.
