When foreigners find strange fishes, they say “What is this?! disgusting…”or something.
But, only Japanese asks “Is this edible?”
I respect my ancestors. Because, when I saw them at first, I didn’t think try to eat! Unbelievable…
Today, I introduce edible strange fishes. gross…
Red stingray is a yummy white fish.
Usually, this is by simmered with soy sauce.
The smoked fins are called “Ei hire”. Toast them lightly and eat with mayonnaise like capelin. This is sweet flavor (under photo).
Eel is “Unagi”. This is one of the expensive fish in Japan. Recently there are many made in china eel. These are not so expensive…less than 10USD each.
Eel has been eaten in Japan since over 5000 years ago. As eel’s blood is poisonous, Never eat raw. “Raw-lover” Japanese even grill well it.
Usually, we eat as glaze-grilled, like teriyaki style it called “Kabayaki”.
This style is called “Una-juu” . This is very popular. second photo is “Hitsu mabushi”. Japanese eats eel in the summer well, because we get energy from it😉
This grotesque fish is little bit chewy white fish expensively.
We eat stew, or deep fried in the winter.
I introduced strange fishes that Japanese eat.
To be honest, the other strange fishes we eat more…
You’ll love it for the rest of your life, may be.
