Ankimo: monkfish liver

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.

  1. oh yum, i love monkfish liver! how’s Okadea otherwise?

  2. The sushi was good, but not great. I think Okada’s strength lies in their hot food. The black cod looked verrrrry tasty, and someone else ordered a cute little egg custard with mushrooms and tofu.
