There is nothing so beautiful as a fresh piece of Hamachi or yellowtail. Prepared simply and served with citrusy ponzu sauce this recipe is a no mess no fuss way of enjoying all of the delicate flavors of this buttery white fish. I recommend pairing it with a dry sake and some Japanese pickled veggies with rice when you enjoy this easy weeknight dish!
