Naturally flavored orange fish from Japan

What will they stink of next? The Japanese fishing industry, deciding that it needs to up their sales and “catch diners’ attention” are creating fish that naturally contain the flavor and scent of fruit and herbs. Have no fear—these fish aren’t two-headed mutants, but farm-raised fish that are fed food that is mixed with fruit or herbs to gain that special flavor.

So far there’s mandarin oranges, lime-like kabosus, olives, and herbs such as nutmeg, oregano, cinnamon and ginger being used to flavor fish just before harvest. This gives a whole new meaning to the term “pre-seasoned.”
