sweetfish

Ayu(鮎:sweetfish)

The open season on sweetfish started on June 1st.
One of my former associates took off from work to go sweetfish-fishing this time of year. We can rarely eat wild sweetfishes.
We eat salt-broiled sweetfishes dipped in rice vinegar mixed with water pepper juice.


This is a sweetfish-shaped confection sold at the nearby Japanese confectionery store.





failed confections...these are not uniform in color!
