With the glut of middle-of-the-road Japanese restaurants in Vancouver, it’s quite easy to go through life without actually trying some of the more unusual things that Japanese cuisine has to offer.
Well, thanks to a friend’s birthday dinner at Okada Sushi, I got to try ankimo. Ankimo is a way of preparing monkfish liver, and it’s delicious. It has a very delicate flavour: slightly fishy and slightly metallic. Apparently it’s only in season in the winter, so get it while you can.
