Kohada Silver

The speckles are many, so many we never count but I think of Kohada’s 1,000 silver spots that get eaten in one bite. This is a small fish that gets soaked in vinegar and is preserved for one to two or more days at most. It has a soft flesh on the underside that is meaty, and a slight hint of vinegar,  but the rice and nikiri warms it up into one perfect bite.
