きんき | Channel Rockfish
Type: Shiromi
Season: Winter.

Also known as kichiji, this fatty, white-fleshed (shiromi) is a rare but welcomed sight on menus in the winter time. As is often the case, a limited supply and demand from higher-end sushiya in Japan means that it’s not often you’ll see this beauty in the Americas.

Fun fact: like me, its pink hue apparently comes from a diet rich in shrimp. 

Robotic, in a good way
A truly beautiful sushiya
A fantastic concept by a wonderful itamae
