Fresh Hon-Hamachi Yellowtail must be stored in the refrigerator immediately upon arrival. For raw consumption, eat within 1-2 days. Any longer, the portion will be searing, poke, or cooking grade.
You can also freeze these portions immediately upon arrival and store for up to one week for sashimi use or 10 days for poke, searing, and cooking preparations (keep in mind that freezing sashimi grade fish diminishes the quality of the meat as the cell membrane is not well maintained in conventional home freezers). For best results, eat properly stored frozen portions within 1-2 months of arrival.
Method I: Place superfrozen product in cold water (preferably an ice bath) for 15 to 30 minutes, until thawed. Remove the portion from the plastic, pat dry and wrap with our white butcher paper provided. Cut and enjoy within 24 hours.
Method II: Remove the portion from the plastic bag, wrap with a paper towel and place in the refrigerator overnight. Cut and enjoy within 24 hours.
Our Japanese Hon-Hamachi Yellowtail are not your standard yellowtail. These fish feature exceptional fat distribution throughout resulting in rich, crisp, and slightly sweet flavors with soft & luxurious textures greeting you with every bite. Hon-Hamachi Yellowtail are raised in low density pens 48x larger than traditional pens allowing the fish to grow stronger, healthier and tastier.
Individually packed and shipped using overnight express delivery. Our Hon-Hamachi Yellowtail is sushi & sashimi grade, sustainable and responsible.
By superfreezing our fresh seafood, in special ultra-cold -60°C freezers, we are able to lock in the freshness and texture of our sushi-grade seafood, while also allowing you to store our products in your conventional freezer for later consumption.
Also, to help many of our customers, most of our superfrozen seafood is shipped out in 8oz portions so you can order more at one time to save on shipping costs, and so you can thaw only the amount you need.
The hamachi is excellent and the otoro (frozen) was incredibly delicious. I’ve bought fish from many other providers and between the packing, smaller available sizes, and the amazing flavor, this place will become my go-to. For these prices, the quality is amazing and I can’t recommend this enough to those who want to take the art of sushi or sashimi into their own hands.

Tasty but on the small side
They are very yummy! I just put them under the broiler with some salt and pepper and serve with ponzu. When I bought it, the description had said from 8oz to 16 oz, and the two I got were right at 8 so I was a little disappointed. At this price point, I could just order from my local Japanese restaurant and it would have been bigger.
Best hamachi around
I've tried sashimi-grade hamachi from other vendors but Riviera's Hon-Hamachi is the best! The taste is fresh, clean and sweet with the perfect texture.
Very fresh sashimi-grade
Perfect ..."Ensalada De Mariscos"
I love this fish in my Central American cooking...(I love it in Sushi as well)......I cut in cubes and steam for one minute ...then add to my "Ensalada".....texture stays good with the other ingredients...Usually Shrimp...Scallops...Crab..and baby squid..Calamares. I don't like octopus....My base is a clam juice .....mixed with a shrimp dipping sauce....some diced and seeded sweet tomatos....Diced jalapenos...diced poblanos...fresh lime juice(NOT LEMON)...Diced onions and cilantro......Salt to taste...Serve with a garnish of Sliced avocado....a dash of cilantro again...Adjust the "Sauce" to taste....seafood should be almost sushi raw but very soft. A cold Negro Modelo...and happiness.
