This is a list of 10 must-try sushi toppings in July. There are many types of karei, but marbled flounder is considered top of the line because of its fatty content. Isaki (Chicken grunt) is definitely recommended at this time, and Iwashi (Japanese sardine) is great too. They taste best from early summer to autumn when they start to put on fat. They are growing especially large during this time to prepare for spawning and are full of nutrients.
Southern Bluefin tuna (Minamimaguro)
Young Gizzard shad (Shinko)
Northern sea urchin (Kitamurasaki uni)
Short-spined sea urchin (Ezobafun uni)
