Cut the saury with the internal organs in half. Rinse the cut saury thoroughly with water and wipe off the water with kitchen paper. When the water is drained, put it in a clean vat and lightly sprinkle salt (outside the amount) on both sides.

Leave it in the refrigerator for at least 10 minutes. If it gets wet, wipe it off with kitchen paper before using it. This completes the deodorization!
