    Do a quick salt and sugar dry cure for 2 hrs in the fridge, then slice it up.

    Try this in a bowl place 1/2 cup soy sause the juice of one lemon, juice of one lime, one sweet onion sliced very thin and one jalapeño pepper sliced very thin. Put in the fridge for a couple of hours. Slice yellow tail thin and arrange on a plate. Just before serving pour the above sause over the fish. Mexican sashimi, killer!!!!!!

    recipe compliments of the really nice cook at Cedros Adventures.

    I thought Hamachi was cured in vinegar or something first. I will try it just like tuna then.......

    Freezing it to kill any critters is common practice at many Sushi bars. It's all about the way you fillet it, don't cut into the guts and keep the board and knife clean and rinsed. Fish that has been frozen does not lose any flavor or texture, unless you keep it there for a year or two... :D

    yellowtail bellies (hamachi) make prime sashimi. if you use a dipping sauce eg. soy sauce/wasabi, then go light and keep it simple. savor the flavor of the fish and not the sauce! sauce should enhance the taste not overpower. best not to soak in the sauce....just dip the tip! :)
    my 2 cents

    Does anyone believe that government workers know best?
    Does anyone believe humanity exists because the FDA and the CDC approve ?

    I have eaten mussels off the rocks in Baja.
    I have eaten many disgusting things.
    I am clearly not dead.

    Live your life.
    Choose your fate.

    I am sick of others sugesting to me how to feel and what to think.
