A seafood delicacy of many names, the yellowtail collar is delightful and easy to prepare. If you managed to get your hands on a batch, here’s a simple and delicious yellowtail collar recipe, bringing a slice of Japan to your kitchen.

As you might already know, yellowtail collar refers to the portion of the fish behind the head and the gills. In Japan, it goes by many names, all of which depend on the size and region.

Japanese locals know how to identify a yellowtail collar in its different growth stages, but if you’re outside the country, the only two names you need to know are hamachi kama and buri.

“Yellowtail collar” is the English translation of these names, and this fish is relatively a breeze to cook. So, without further ado, here is a yellowtail collar recipe for you to try. Happy cooking!

Yellowtail Collar Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2 yellowtail collars
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • soy sauce or yuzu ponzu
  • lemon wedge for garnish

Instructions:

1. Place the oven rack about 8 inches below the top and preheat to 500°F.

2. Line your baking sheet with aluminum foil and place the fish skin-side down on the sheet.

3. Brush each collar with mirin and drizzle with kosher salt.

4. Place the baking sheet inside the preheated oven and leave it to cook for 7-10 minutes. Once cooked, the collars will be slightly browned and will flake easily.

5. Serve the collars with lemon wedges and soy sauce or yuzu ponzu dipping sauce.

For ultimate flavor and enjoyment, coat each bite with a squeeze of the lemon wedge and dip it in your chosen sauce.
