Yellowtail is known as a “lucky” food in Japan, due to it being considered a shusseuo (literally “promotion fish,” or fish that are referred to by different names at various stages of growth).

Slice into fillets and let rest in the Nanban marinade along with some vegetables, for a delicious and refreshing dish. You can pickle the yellowtail alongside whatever vegetables you prefer.

  • Cut carrot and ginger into 3cm thin strips, onion into thin slices, Japanese green onion diagonally into 3cm lengths, yellowtail fillets into harf.
