Shirasu is immature fish of, for example, eels, sardines and herrings. The length is only around 25 mm and the colour is white or translucent.
You can find dried shirasu at many supermarkets in Japan; however, the raw one is hardly available except at the shops in fishing villages. It rots so easily that it cannot be transported far away from fisheries. Thus, nama shirasu is special food even for Japanese.
Raw shirasu, which used to be eaten only locally, is characterized by its bittersweet freshness.
