In our Mita neighborhood, every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, there's a fish truck that parks in front of the Za Sakaya, a shop selling alcohol and discounted imported snacks. The fish guy turns on his loud speaker that blasts a catchy song, "Kawaii, kawaii, sakanaya-san..." (literally translated as: cute, cute, fish seller...), his version of the noren stating "Open for Business." Because of construction of a massive, 36-story, luxury high-rise apartment building in his area of business, he has had to relegate his selling to another area, but he reassures me he will return to our Mita neighborhood once construction has finished. Which is soon.
The other day, when I bought my usual miso marinated cod, he also had humongous shrimp for sale. My daughter is not a shrimp fan so I don't usually make it, but since she's now away at school, I bought some thinking they would be terrific grilled. And they were. Succulent and spicy with just the right amount of char. My kind of wonderful!
