Aji is known to everyone in Japan, as it is a common fish at both restaurants and home . This 20 – 50cm long, blue-backed fish features a mild flavor and has been enjoyed as dried or a sushi topping.
Aji is found widely in the seas around Japan. Although it is caught throughout the year, the fish is popular as a sushi topping for summer, when we can savor its good amount of fat.
In English, aji is usually called horse mackerel or Jack mackerel.
