Hamachi - Japanese Collars Frozen 1.5lbs
Fish Facts: Hamachi, also known as Japanese Amberjack or Yellowtail, is a species native to the Northwest Pacific from the waters of Japan to Hawaii. Amberjack is a highly regarded game fish by anglers for the endurance and power it displays when hooked. This fish is typically served as a delicacy in the Winter when the fat content of the fish significantly increases. There are 2 classifications of Japanese Amberjack, Hamachi and Buri. Hamachi is younger and weighs roughly 3kg whereas Buri is an adult weighing in around 5kg.
Taste/Cooking: The raw meat can range from light pink to pink, this variance in color comes from differing levels of fat content in the fish. A lighter pink indicates higher levels of fat whereas darker pink indicates higher levels of protein. This high oil fish boasts a buttery, firm texture with a sweet and mild flavor. Common methods of preparation include roasting, grilling, or braising. Our Hamachi would pair well with our Miso Paste, Teriyaki, Japanese Togarashi, and many more.
