Baby Spotted Sardine (Shinko) from Saga
Shinko has finally arrived! We have waited for a very long time.
With their arrival, we can finally say that it is summer. It is such a symbolic fish.
They are so tiny right now that you need 2 or 3 of them to make a single piece of sushi.
Without this, Edomae Style sushi is not complete.
They grow bigger day by day, from this size that needs couple of them for one nigiri to a size that only needs one for a nigiri, and then eventually they are going to be called Kohada.
You can enjoy how this fish and its nigiri changes during the whole summer.
