Frozen, Whole fish, Gutted, Scale On, 350g-400g/pc, Origin : Japan

Tilefish / Amadai (甘鯛) is characterized by its white flesh, low fat content, watery texture, and soft flesh.

The best way to cook Amadai is simmered in broth (nitsuke), partially dried and then grilled (himono), or grilled fresh (shioyaki).

If you do not season the meat with salt before cooking, it may lose its shape as it contains a lot of water and is soft.

Tilefish / Amadai (甘鯛) Information

Amadai (甘鯛)is the Japanese name for sweet seabream.

‘Ama’ (甘) means ‘sweet’ in Japanese, and ‘dai’ (鯛)is the Japanese word for ‘sea bream’ (although Amadai are actually unrelated to sea bream). In English, the fish are called ‘Tilefish.’

Amadai has a light taste, so it is an ingredient that can be used not only in Japanese cuisine but also in Western cuisine.

The meat is soft, so cooking it gives it a fluffy texture and an elegant finish. Since it is often eaten at restaurants as a high-quality fish, it would also be a great choice as the main menu for a special day at home.
