Kinmedai


I got a new fish. Some people know this. It is Kinme-dai. Dai(tai) means snapper family but this is not. The shape looks like snapper or sea bream and eye color is gold, that's why we call kin(gold) me(eye) dai( snapper).
English name is more complicated. The name is splendid alfonsino. They live in deep ocean everywhere in the world. This fish is very fatty and because of living place. And they get more fat in winter time. I can tell when I cut the fish.
It is good for sashimi, sushi and cooking with heavy dashi soy sauce. The mouth is very unique and I open with my finger. They can get very wide and can eat big fishes.
I will keep this for winter time.
