Sashimi Grade Yellowtail Hamachi


Hamachi, also known as Japanese amberjack or yellowtail, is a species of jack fish that is prized for its exceptional flavor and texture. These fish are farm-raised in Japan to exacting standards: yellowtail have an optimal size for best taste due to their increasingly higher fat content as they age. Their naturally high marbling results in full flavored flesh that is delicious raw or cooked. Hamachi has a rich, buttery taste, and refreshing citrus-like acidity packed with umami.


The loin cut comes from the back and mid-section of the fish. It is a superb balance of both lean meat and fat. The back loin is leaner and move flavorful while the belly loin is richly marbled and fragrant.


These sashimi blocks (saku) are trimmed and ready for use in various raw or cooked preparations such as sashimi, sushi, or poke bowls. For best taste, we recommend eating it within 2 days or freezing it for up to two weeks.
