Although originally an hors d'oeuvre dish, Akira used a hand-held blowtorch to unleash the aroma of Kaeshi used to coat the Pacific saury, also because of the kaeshi it can make it easier to be properly charred. Although he is known for his mastery of blending spices, Akira solely used allspice, creating not an hors d'oeuvre, but a full course meal. Akira shows the power of aroma "reduction" to show the full power of just one spice!
