Hirame Loin (half-side) 日本新鮮平目魚刺身
Hirame (平目) is a common fish you can find at many sushi restaurants. It’s a white fish with a mild flavor compared to other pieces you would find on the menu. The texture is soft and chewy, and slightly pink in color or dark grey veins that reminds one of faint watercolors on a canvas. Hirame sashimi is not only suited for sushi and sashimi but also for seasonal salads. The best season to eat hirame is autumn to winter. Due to the mild flavor, it’s typically used as a balance against the other oiler and more fragrant fish.
