This week I attended a business dinner at a ‘fishing restaurant’. How it works is…you come in, grab a fishing pole, and (in these two large tanks with a boat in the middle) you start fishing. When you catch a fish, you let them know how you would like it prepared: sashimi-style, steamed with salt, grilled with a sake glaze, or smoked.
There was a large group of us; so, we caught several different types of fish, had them prepared in several different ways, and enjoyed them all ‘family-style’. While it was a little weird to have the bodies of the fish that were served sashimi-style literally still moving when they were served, the freshness and flavor were amazing.
