Prized in Kyushu and not as common in Kanto because being nocturnal, the fish is hard to catch and grows slowly. The best season for Kue is in winter when the Kyushu sumo tournament is held in November and sumo wrestlers enjoy it in a nabe hotpot 🍲

As sashimi, it had a good amount of fat and a nice springy texture. (Zoomed in and saw the layers of fatty muscle, ooooh~) a pleasant surprise and I enjoyed the rather complex flavour - more so than hirame or tai 🍣 #latergram #omakasesushi #sashimilover #burpple
