Moroko sushi (cooked river fish sushi)

This food used to be cooked as a hospitality dish at festivals or religious rituals in the Seino region where a food culture around river fish had been nurtured. Vinegared rice is laid in a special sushi box, on which sweetened boiled "moroko (a kind of carp)" is arranged and pressed from the top to make oshizushi (pressed sushi). Its finely bitter taste is unforgettable to those who experience it.
