About the Product
The Japanese horse mackerel or Japanese jack mackerel is called Maaji in Japanese, which is translated as “true horse mackerel”.
The meat is tender, pinkish in color and fatty. As nigiri sushi, it is often garnished with ginger (gari, ガリ) and spring onions (negi, 葱). In upscale or more sophisticated sushi restaurants, freshly grated ginger is sometimes placed between the rice and the meat. Thanks to its high fat content, Japanese horse mackerel (maaji) paired with vinegared sushi rice makes a tasty combination .
What is Ikejime ?
Ikejime (活け締め) is a method of killing fish which also maintains the quality of its meat.
Harvested with the ike jime method, fish can be refrigerated for weeks when safely stored in a vacuum sealed bag or airtight container. This process not only makes the fish taste better – it also lasts longer, has zero smell, and reduces waste as it won’t spoil nearly as fast, allowing you to respect the fish and the fishery to the maximum ability.
