You can do any sauce almost & it will taste good.
If your lazy, like me.
Leave the skin on. & put that side on the rack when drying. Can just peal off as you eat.

Most of the fishes we dry ..we cut about 1/4 inch thick ...sprinker Hawaiian salt... refrig over night..let the salt "soak-in" ...next day...put in dry box... 1 day OK...but you may want 2 day dried...?

A very simple process...getting a nice dry box...or making one...lots of money and time....

Electric dehydrater works terrific too! and if you have the old style Propane gas stove with a always on PILOT light..? this heat is enough to dry overnight too. ... we use dried meat that way too in old style ovens (propane kind)...

Dried aku...so expensive to buy today.... Good idea to make your own...

Aloha
