Yellowtail and radish

Fresh  yellowtail is available in supermarket now. It is the season of yellowtail with radish. It is a popular dish for family meal here. Radish is boiled with rece washed water prior to cooking with yellowtail. Yellowtail is pretreated with salt and, later, boiled water to lessen its fishy smell. yellowtail is cooked with stock, soy sauce, sake, ginger and sugar etc. In 15 min., radish is put into it with some additional seasoning materials. Cook them for another half an hour.

It is really good. Yellowtail has rich taste while radish absorbs well seasoned sauce with the taste of yellowfish. A gift from nature in this season.



  1. I always learn something when I read your blog. I did not know there were so many different kinds of fish called yellowtail. The one in Florida is a yellowtail snapper. I assume this was a yellowtail amberjack. Is it called hamachi?


    1. Terry,

      Yes, it seems to be called as Amberjack. Hamachi is a name which they call younger Yellowtail in the western Japan. This kind of fish is very popular here, so that there are a number of different names for this species according to their age. Hamachi is often used for a material of sushi.
