Tai is the king of the fish. There are a dozen types of tai harvested in Japan, but sushi uses “madai.”
Tai is serve two different ways: skinless–to enjoy the sweet white meat–or matsukawa-zukuri (“pine bark” style). In the latter, as pictured here, the skin has been parboiled to allow the recipient to savor the entire fish: the skin, the fat under the skin, and the sweet raw fish meat.
