Seafood Spotlight – Yellowtail / Hamachi

By | Chef's Feed, Item of the Day, Seafood, What Chefs Want

Hamachi / Yellowtail

Hamachi is very versatile. Though mostly served raw, thinly sliced for sashimi, it is also delicious lightly seared. Or try it simply seasoned with salt and grilled – the salt and high heat bring out the sweet, delicate flavor. 

Yellowtail fillets can have a dark muscle line along the edge. Cooked meat is pink or white and firm with a sweet, mild flavor. The high oil content gives the flesh a buttery texture.
