  • 1 Yellowtail Collar
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Ponzu
  • 1 tsp Yuzu can sub with lemon juice
  • 1/4 Whole Chili Pepper optional


  • Gather all the ingredients.
  • Pat yellowtail collar dry with a paper towel and lightly sprinkle salt on meat side (no need to salt skin side).
  • Line oven tray with aluminum foil and spray cooking oil (we use a toaster oven, but I would assume this would work just fine in a regular oven as well). Place fish skin down - meat up and cook for about 10-14 minutes at 425Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the collar. I recommend starting at 10 minutes and checking to see if meat easily flakes off with a fork.
  • In the meantime, prepare dipping sauce by slicing optional peppers and adding it to a bowl. Mix with Ponzu and Yuzu.
  • Once fish is done, serve with dipping sauce. Note - there's a main cartilage in the collar and the mass of the meat will be behind the cartilage.
