Maguro no Sashimi

This is Akami( lean) of Maguro.
Maguro means tuna.
It is a typical Sashimi dish, and rich in protein.

I introduce some species of Maguro, which is good for Sashimi in Japan.

Kuro Maguro ( Pacific blue fin tuna )
It is also called "Hon Maguro".
It is the Maguro which is only called "Maguro" in narrow sense.
It is the most popular Maguro in Japan.

Minami Maguro ( Southern blue fin tuna )
It is also called "Indo Maguro".
The figure of it is similar to Kuromaguro.
It is popular Maguro after Kuro Maguro.

Mebachi ( bigeye tuna )
It is also called " Bach".
It is popular Maguro after Kuro Maguro, Minami Maguro.
Especialiy it is popular in estern part of Japan.
Sashimi in photo above is Mebachi Maguro.

Kihada ( yellow fin tuna )

nobu, my daughter only orders sashimi for her meal at Japanese restaurants. She prefers mummy's sushi and others. Sashimi, we leave to the professionals to serve.

Oh Nabu, I haven't had sushi in awhile. This makes me so hungry for good sushi.

Of course, the best sushi is in Japan! (smiling) I miss Japanese sushi place, and the way you serve beer in Japan, too. I tried to incorporate this in my social settings, but people don't seem to understand beauty of it here, serving, being served.
