Miyagi Salmon

Miyagi Prefecture boasts the largest shipment quantity of cultured silver salmon in Japan, accounting for over 90% of nationwide production. We call them "Miyagi salmon" due to their high-quality and high-freshness as a result of freshness treatments called ikejime and shinkeijime at the time of landing. Please have a taste of "Miyagi salmon" which features glossiness and tightness and a mellow texture with sweet taste.
