Hamachi, or the Japanese Yellowtail, is a staple in Japanese households. Farmed in a quality Japanese fishery, they are more fatty than their wild caught counterparts, giving their flesh a luxurious texture and rich flavour that makes it suitable for sashimi or searing. Flash frozen after being caught and processed in Japan to retain freshness.
