Kinmedai, Alfonsino

Some fish are good for sashimi and sushi and some are good for cooking.

Kinmedai is good for both. This fish has big eyes and has a lot of gelatin around eyes. We cannot dumo this and have to eat. It is available only 2 a week.
Kinmedai is very expensive fish and cannot order 5 or 6 a week.
It is deep ocean fish and has good fat. So, nituke style cooking is the best. We cook a little bit sweet with mirin and sugar. I normally cook 20 minutes and pour dashi around head and wrap with foil and circulate dashi all head.
One of customers kid hold an eye ball. Do we eat it? Yes, we eat. I cannot say how good for our body. But try it. It is a great experience for you and your family. Fish head contains great meat.
Ask me when you are ready.
