Amadai 甘鯛 / Tile Fish (Proton Fz, Slice) is a Shiromi (white flesh fish). Loosely translated, “ama”甘 = sweet, while “dai” 鯛 refers to the Bream family of fish. Typically, Amadai has a softer flesh texture, and freezing these slices would result in the deterioration in quality. To firm up the texture, these slices are kombujime 昆布締め before they are frozen. This is a traditional Japanese curing / aging technique where fish loins are  sandwiched between slices of kelp to enhance both flavour and texture.
