What’s Japanese yellowtail, aka hamachi, and what’s the difference between other types of yellowtail fish?

Japanese yellowtail (hamachi) is native to the northwest pacific ocean and has a delicate and mild tasting fish with a soft texture.  It is one of the most popular fishes used for sushi and sashimi in Japan.

Other yellowtail such as Baja Yellowtail, California Yellowtail and Kingfish look very similar, but the meat is much leaner compared to hamachi.

Most Japanese and some Asian supermarkets will usually have yellowtail for sashimi use.

You can also purchase and get it shipped directly to you from Catalina Offshore.

What is Japanese yuzu?

Japanese yuzu is a citrus fruit that tastes like a cross between a lemon and a grapefruit.  It is very sour and tart and is used commonly in Japanese cooking.
