In December, the temperature in Japan becomes very cold. There are even regions where it snows.
How is the temperature in your area?
It’s such a cold season, but I’ve gone fishing!
Since Japan is a country surrounded by the sea, there are many people who enjoy fishing. I am one of them.
During the winter in Japan, the temperature of the seawater drops and you can’t catch as many fish, but it’s also a great time to catch big ones!
This time, we took a boat from Kushimoto in Wakayama.
A few hours in a small boat waiting for the big one….
My friend caught something!
This is Yellowtail (Hamachi). I looked it up, and it seems to be a fish that is served at sushi restaurants overseas.
I caught one too.
My friend even caught a sea bream!
When we got home we cooked the fish we caught!
This is called “Buridaikon(yellowtail and radish)” and is a dish commonly eaten in Japanese homes.
It is cooked with soy sauce, sugar, ginger, and other seasonings, and it is a dish that goes very well with alcohol.
By the way, the sake in the back is “Shiso Plum Wine“. It’s sweet and very tasty~!

I like to eat fresh fish as sashimi, but sometimes it’s nice to cook it like this.
