>kinmedai the Golden Eye

One more tai...
You can't leave out a favorite of sashimi lovers everywhere.

kin (gold) + me (eye) +
tai = kinmedai

The golden eye snapper, latin name Beryx splendens.
Notice the glassy eye appearance of kinmedai which is normal, unlike this guy <--

Actually, "golden eye snapper" makes a pretty appealing English name, so "kinmedai" may not catch on. Many Japanese restaurants in this country do serve kinmedai, including Morimoto in New York.
