Also known as the Butterfish due to its delicate meat, the Medai is a unique delicacy in Japanese cuisine. With its small scales and soft bones, it is an extremely easy fish to prepare while still being absolutely delicious! The Medai can be enjoyed as sashimi or carpaccio to showcase its delicate flavours. One interesting thing to note is that its meat does not toughen when cooked, keeping its soft texture, making this fish perfect for shabu shabu, or other heat treatment!
