Japan is an island nation with many small islets and a beautiful inland sea. As such, seafood and fish have an important place in Japanese culture. The yellowtail fish is a much appreciated fellow!
This cute ceramic mini plate is named 'Yellowtail' because of its fish shape and yellow-ish green colour, distinctive of the Japanese amberjack or yellowtail.
Small dishes and plates like this are very useful if you like to serve Japanese and Asian cuisine as they can be used for dips, soy sauce, condiments such as ginger and wasabi, pickled vegetables and other small side dishes.
This fishy one is especially fun to pair with your sashimi or sushi course!
The plate measures 11.5cm (just over 4½") from nose to tail and 10.2cm (about 4") across the widest part.
Made in Japan.
