Mako Garei (真子鰈 / Marbled Sole)

Category: Shiromi (white fish). Season: Summer.


"There is no better whitefish than mako garei from Joban in the warmer months. I believe this. There may not be any other sushi craftsman who values mako garei as much as I do." - Jiro Ono (Sukiyabashi Jiro)

Indeed, mako garei (along with hoshi garei) is considered the most delicious of all summertime white fish, and is a very expensive, rare, and prized sushi-dane. It provides a smooth and sweet taste full of delicious umami.
