Trader Joe's Swordfish Sashimi

Now, it is common in North American markets to sell Tuna or Salmon Sashimi.

But how about swordfish sashimi (called Mekajiki in Japan)?

Japan is a nation of seafood.
It is normal to see hundreds kind of fish and seafood (squid, octopus, sea urchin) on sale in the market.
It is unusual, at least in my experience to see swordfish sashimi here at the west coast.

It has a distinctive taste.  Fish such as saba also has a kind of taste.
A person may like it or not depending on his experience and understanding of sashimi.

Me?  I love sashimi!

I kind of wish Trader Joe's and others can sell more of different kind of fish.
However, we don't have a fish culture in US or Canada, so it is not ideal for merchants.

Too bad.  I guess I will have to enjoy when I fly back.
