An iconic fish in Japan’s cuisine – and culture – the Madai Snapper is actually not a snapper but a sea bream from the Sparidae family. Hailed as the best eating among the many species of sea bream – usually know as “tai” – they are found in Japanese and regional Pacific waters. Madai are known as the “True Seabream” or “Genuine Tai” – a testament to its prestige as the best eating of all the bream varieties. It has a firm, flaky, mild flavored flesh that can be seared, broiled or grilled, and the skin, when cooked, is edible. Madai is a suitable substitute for most dishes that call for Red Snapper.
