A fish in hands

ベロコという魚。
母がとても好きな魚で、小さいころよく食卓に上っていました。
虹色が毒々しいけど綺麗。調理するとこの美しいいろがなくなってしまってちょっとがっかり。
小骨がいっぱいだけど、白身で美味しいのです。
英名はWrasse。こちらではまだ見たことないけれど、英名があるからこっちにもいるはず??

Wrasse is one of my mum's favourite fish and we used to have it for dinner often when I was little.
The rainbow colour looks poisonous but breathtakingly beautiful at the same time which disappeares when it's cooked and makes me bit disappoited.
The tiny bones makes it difficult to eat with chopsticks but the white meat tastes really great.
I've never seen this fish here in the UK yet though there must be somewhere as they've got English name??
