Small fry

200709031158000.jpg

After researching shirasu (しらす) I learned it’s a small fish local to Shizuoka prefecture.

This blog on Shizuoka explained everything.

I thought I had eaten shirasu sushi before (at Tsukiji), but turns out it was really shirauo (しらうお).

The picture is shirasu-don.

We may need to add Shizuoka to our Japan trip plans next year.
