" Gwang O " Sashimi/Halibut Sashimi/ 比目鱼鱼生/광어회 Seafood
On the 6/6/2013, we were invited by friends to have sashimi at a friend's house. They bought 20 kg of raw halibut from a fisherman. 14 members did enjoyed this meal very much. If we have the sashimi at a restaurant, the sashimi will not be so thick as my friend sliced. Each piece was very thick, the head ,tail and the bones,etc were used to cook soup, we call this soup as " Ji Ri /지리" ( In Korea, those not spicy seafood soup, we call it "Ji Ri") , was very delicious...
6/6/2013，受邀前往朋友的家去。 他们向渔夫买了 20 kg 的比目鱼， 我们 14 人 一起享受丰富美味的鱼生。若您到餐馆去吃鱼生，鱼片都是切的薄薄的，我那朋友真慷慨，每一片鱼片都切的厚厚的。 剩下的鱼头，鱼尾和骨头等则拿来煮汤 （ 在韩国，那些不辣的海鲜汤，我们称它为 “ Ji Ri”/ 지리) ,鲜甜美味。。。
The California halibut, Paralichthys californicus is an unusual fish in that one eye migrates from one side of the head to the other as it grows from pelagic, bilaterally symmetrical baby fish into an adult fish that lies on its side on the bottom with two eyes on the up-side. Most flatfish are generally either right-eyed or left-eyed, but the California halibut is unusual in having a roughly even number of each type. It is native to the waters of the Pacific Coast of North America from the Quillayute River in Washington to Magdalena Bay in Baja California. It feeds near shore and is free swimming. It typically weighs 6 to 50 pounds (3 to 23 kg).
The California halibut, Paralichthys californicus, also known as California flounder, Chicken Halibut or Bastard Halibut, is a large-tooth flounder family Bothidae (Left-eyed flounders) occur from Magdalena Bay, Baja California, to the Quillayute River, British Columbia.
Although a member of the left-eyed flounder family, about 40 percent of California halibut have their eyes on the right side. Small eyes are sinistral or dextral, little wider than the broad separated by a rather wide, flat area. Scales small, finely ciliate, even on eyed and blind sides, each scale surrounded by narrow accessory scales; fins wilt ctenoid scales. Though this flounder is commonly known as the Chicken Halibut that name is more commonly used for the young of the true halibut. It. is a rather slender, thick flounder, resembling somewhat the true halibut in shape. From its resemblance to the halibut, it usually goes by the name of Bastard Halibut.
|The body of the California halibut is elongate, deep, slender and highly compressed. The head is small and the mouth is large and armed with large, slender, sharp, uneven teeth, rather long, the canines moderate. Numerous teeth are strong and sharp on both sides of head. The maxillary extending to or beyond rear edge of lower eye, and is about as long as the pectoral fin. Snout is moderately sharp; preopercle visible. Dorsal fin low, beginning over front of upper eye just past pectoral, pointed, reaching curve of lateral line; dorsal fins of blind side shorter and rounded behind; caudal fin shorten or concave. Anal spine small, concealed.|
Color: eyed side grayish or greenish-brown, dark brown to black, sometimes mottled with lighter and darker shades; small white spots; and blind side white t o cream. Young fish with bluish - white spots; partial pigmentation on the eyed side. Rare specimens may be either brown or white on both sides or have partial coloration on both sides.
