Shimesaba kobujime is a traditional preparation of pacific mackerel (saba) that adds flavor, firms up the flesh, and removes fishy odors. The fish is gutted and filleted, cured with salt and sugar, and then washed with vinegar. High quality kombu (kelp) is then used as a wrap to slowly infuse the fish with deep umami taste and rich flavor. This fish is fully prepared and ready-to-eat raw or cooked. It is excellent for sushi, sashimi, broiling, or grilling.
This is extra large wild caught sashimi grade mackerel from Norway processed in Japan. It is caught during peak season resulting in more flavorful and fatty flesh.
