Originating from the northwest Pacific Ocean, Yellow Tail is a fish found in Japan as Hamachi or buri. The Japanese people greatly appreciate this delicious and buttery tasting meat with a mild flavour.
Yellowtail is a fish with an undeniable lusciousness. It tastes bolder than most other fishes. Some say its flavour lingers for a while because of the tanginess that follows after you eat one.
Seriola quinqueradiata, commonly referred to as Japenese Amberjack or Yellow Tail Jack Fish, are members in the genus Seriolais found mostly off Japan’s Pacific coast but with some populations extending into Taiwan and other parts near Southeast Asia (Jackson et al.). If you’re looking for quality seafood at your favourite sushi joint, don’t look past this essential ingredient that has been filling stomachs for centuries now! This side of skin-on vac-packed Hamachi is one of its cornerstones, and it makes sushi all that much more delicious.
What Does Yellowtail (Hamachi) Taste Like?
Hamachi has a buttery texture and bold taste that is either sharp or smoky. It can be quite rich like toro but not as fatty with an oily finish.
The part of the fish around its pectoral fins are considered some people’s favourite parts to eat because they offer both deep flavours from grilling it on fire!
Grilled up just right, so you get all those delicious tastes in one bite!
