Crown Toro Hamachi is an exquisite quality, sustainably sea-farmed Hamachi from Uwajima, Japan. With a naturally smooth, buttery texture and delicate flavor, Hamachi is prized for all sushi and sashimi preparations, and still delicious when cooked. This selection isolates the loin - a juicy, fatty, superbly versatile cut that is easy to prepare.
These fish are killed according to the famed Ike Jime process, a complex procedure that minimizes stress while the fish is harvested, preserving the flavor and texture of the fish far more effectively than is possible with a less thoughtful or meticulous approach. In addition to being as sustainable and humane as possible, this practice prevents the surge of lactic acid that often compromises the quality of the meat.
