In Japan, Pagrus major is known as madai (真鯛, or "genuine tai") and is prized both for its flavor and for its traditional use as an auspicious food often served during Japanese New Year and festive occasions such as weddings.  With its simple flavor, madai complements all kinds of cuisine.  In addition to sashimi, madai is used in various cuisines including Japanese, Western and Chinese
