Sashimi Tai @ Matsukawa |Perfect Sea Tension|

This fish’s name Tai and it had what I call “perfect sea tension”, the fish was taught and fresh as can be with a nice sweetness and firmness. Sea Bream propagate widely up and down the coasts of the Japanese archipelago, which stretches from the northern shores of Hokkaido to southern Okinawa. Bream is a favorite fish throughout the country, but the tai caught off the coastal city of Akashi, on the Inland Sea, is considered superlative. Some attribute its excellent flavor to the abundant shrimp and squid on which the bream feed and others claim that the rapid currents in that area, against which the fish must swim, tighten their flesh.
