Ayu is a Japanese Sweetfish, only in season during the Japanese summer. It has a distinctly sweet and delicate flesh that makes it a highly-prized seasonal food fish typically found only in high-end, fine dining restaurants. Farmed at the famous Mori Fish Farm in the Gifu Prefecture, all the fish are grown sustainably in the abundant, clear ground waters of Gifu.
Ayu Kanroni is pre-grilled in sweet soy sauce and mirin, and can be consumed merely by heating it up.

- Fish comes frozen and needs to be heated up

Staff Review: Now this is a rare treat! Fish is soft, tender with a unique sweetness found nowhere else! Fresh Ayu can be difficult to cook, so a pre-marinated and grilled one is perfect for newbies.
