The longer the marinating time is, the saltier the food becomes. Food with Shio Koji is very easy to get burnt so I would recommend you stay with the food while cooking.

When you use a frying pan, you may have too much moisture coming from the meat. It is better to remove the moisture on the meat just before you cook it. I also recommend using aluminium foil or oven paper in order to easily clean the frying pan after cooking.
