Karei, or Japanese Flounder, is one of the highest quality white-fleshed fishes that you can get from Japan. Seasonally available in the Summer time, it has soft, white flesh that is lower in fat content and retains moisture well. It is one of the fishes that are introduced to infants or to elderly due to its tenderness and low calorie count. Prepared Nitsuke-style, it is pre-simmered in a soy and mirin broth. Uncommonly found in this part of the world, MoguShop has exclusively brought in Matsuoka Suisan Karei Nitsuke for all to taste and enjoy!
