I had some friends come into town today. They're doctors' wives and like to eat fancy foods. I'm game. Sure, I'll pay $35 for lunch. I mean I don't do it everyday, right? It was mighty good. Even the fish sperm.
I just showed my husband the pictures and he said, "Oh, so you eat fish balls." I replied with something like, "Fish have balls?" Then I looked it up.
Funny thing is I had heard the word before, lots. It's kind of like fish. A fish is a fish is a fish to me. I like fish. And I can identify quite a bit here. But I couldn't tell you what they were in English.
Shirako. Remember that. It means White Child/Children. I suppose it wouldn't have been that much of a stretch of my imagination to figure out what it was.
So here are the pics. See if you can find the fish sperm. Yum! As an aside, it was soft and creamy.
※ Sorry, some of the pictures are enormous.
