Description

Buri 鰤 // Japanese Yellowtail Amberjack (Proton Fz, Slice) is a Shirome (White meat fish) that is primed in the Japanese Winter (Dec to Feb). These slices and loins come from fish of at least 8kg in size. We did a blind test with the previous batch of Hiramasa slices, and these were flavourful and much fattier. Thank God for technology that shortens the wait for Buri from a year to perhaps about 6 months! Once this batch is sold out, we will have to wait till Winter comes back around!
