pacific longspine flavor, texture, omega 3, and seasonality
The Pacific longspine thornyhead is a deep-sea rockfish that can survive for five months between meals, lives up to 50 years, and has unusually bulbous eyeballs that give them the North American nickname of "idiot fish.” Longspine thornyheads are caught primarily for the Japanese market, where they are prized for their unique taste and served as kinki. The fish are marinated for days, often in sake or miso, then steamed, baked, or barbecued.
