misoni with flyfish

I cooked a simmered Japanese traditional dish, called "misoni" with flyfish.

See? These are flyfish. People knows it as a fish can fly on sea.

I'm simmering the fish with miso based soup, miso, mirin, sake, and water. And I added thick sliced ginger. It's very simple. Don't use much miso. Perhaps, some people notice the white flat looked like a pig. This is a "Otoshi buta". Otoshi buta is a kinda lid for making simmered dish. Usually the lid is made with wood though, this is made with silicon. This pig face isn't just design. the nose is functioning as vent hole. and you can pick it up by sticking the nose with chopsticks. see this. that's little funny.
