Hi George,

...all the way to the table.  I'll remember that next time.


Hi, Ken,

the fish are 'yamame', a Japanese trout.  The English name is simlply  
"masu trout', and 'masu' is Japanese for trout'.  They grow to about  
25 cm, if they stay only in the river.  However, like salmon, they  
grow very large if they go to the sea and return upstream later.  Then  
they are called 'sakuramasu', which means 'cherry trout', because of  
their flesh which has changed to pink.  The sakuramasu don't swim so  
high upstream, where I like to fish, as the yamame.

Both are delicious, and I cook my yamame with salt, flour and lemon  
rubbed in, then saut?e them.

Al the best,
