Kingfish os Nagasaki, eaten in sushi rolls too
The surrounding seas of Nagasaki are home to abundant Kingfish. Therefore it is a popular fish in the area, meaning that the default sushi roll (usually tuna in other parts of the country) is kingfish in this area! Tuna flesh is bright red, whereas kingfish is white, so the Nagasaki sushi rolls are marketed as ‘white tuna rolls’ for tourists and visitors. Fresh kingfish has no bad smell, a faint trace of fattiness and a chewiness which lends itself well to eating raw. Just a touch of sweet Nagasaki soy sauce (which includes sugar) is added to enjoy the rich luxuriousness of this fish.
