Aji

あじ | Horse Mackerel
Type: Hikarimono.
Season: Summer.

The mackerel family gets a lot of unfair grief for being “fishy”. The truth is that like many of its cousins, Aji (also called “ma-aji”) is an acquired taste that bangs when paired with a bit of ginger or negi (green onion), as it often is.
