Riviera Seafood Club's Hon-Hamachi, scientifically named Seriola quinqueradiata, is farmed in the waters of Hawaii. With every bite your taste buds are greeted with a rich, clean, sweet, and slightly nutty flavor, complemented by a texture ranging from semi-firm to firm. Our Yellowtail is prepared as a sushi and sashimi grade filet.

Hamachi Belly is full of fatty clean flavor with a melty, buttery texture prized in the sushi bar.  Torch/sear if you'd like for another flavor profile to bring out more of the fish flavor.  Besides your regular soy sauce and wasabi, hamachi pairs well with citrus and heat flavors to make some unique food experiences.

All orders of Hamachi are individually packaged in refrigerated packaging and shipped using overnight express delivery. It will be delivered to your table in two days (one day for processing, one day for delivery). We guarantee our Hamachi is the best quality that you can find, perfect for sushi, sashimi, and cooking too!

Time your defrost process to a couple of hours before your meal for the optimal outcome.

How I do the Belly

I love this slice of the Fish...and Riviera provides the Perfect Piece....after slightly defrosting I remove the skin.....and watch for a few bones....they may be there...I like to thin slice and marinate in Fresh squeezed Lime juice...Maybe half a lime...I then add sliced Jalapenos...salt ..pepper...a sprinkle of cilantro...diced avocado...and a generous dash of Chulela hot sauce. Cold Modelo Negro ..I am sure can be done as a Sushi....but like Mexican beach Prep.

Buttery and fresh

This was the first time ordering and it was very tasty and sooo fresh!!

A bit more trim than I expected

It was delicious, but I needed to trim a little too much. Still had belly bones or cartilage.
