Hiramasa (Seriola Lalandi), Yellowtail Kingfish, Amberjack
Buttery texture and bright mild flavor
Perfect for sashimi, sushi, and crudo, Hiramasa has a pale pink flesh with firm, large flakes and a sweet, rich, buttery flavor. This Hiramasa is previously frozen and comes in filleted with the skin on and bones out. Compared to Kanpachi, Hiramasa has a softer texture and richer flavor due to the higher fat content.
Hiramasa is a sustainable alternative to the well-known fish Hamachi. Hamachi, a fish popular for sashimi, faces problems of overfishing especially amongst the juvenile fish population. This fish was farmed in South Australia’s Spencer Gulf where there is nothing between the prestine waters of Antarctic and the Kingfish.
As a 100% transparent and sustainable seafood supplier, Royal Hawaiian was one of the first seafood processors in the country to collaborate with the Monterey Bay Seafood Watch program to ensure that we only sell products from fisheries that are responsibly harvested or aqua-cultured.
