Fresh Shima Aji Loin (half-side) 250g+/- 日本新鮮縞鰺刺身 (深海池魚王)
Shima Aji or striped jack mackerel, fish with firm and luscious flesh with just the right amount of fat. The fresh fish has very delicate, chewy, crunchy, and firm texture. As it ages, it gets smoother and filled with more fat. Although it’s name has the word Aji in it, it is not in the mackerel family.
Shima-aji is one of the most luxury fishes for Sushi and Sashimi. It is extensively farmed in Japan. But even the farmed fish is expensive. You rarely find it in supermarkets.
