Cold yellowtail can be eaten during cold season only
Yellowtail is caught all year around and needless to say, it is so tasty . But yellowtail caught during only cold season is called Cold yellowtail (or Winter yellowtail).
And Cold yellowtail is so fatty and excellent ! So I am impatient for this season every year. Ah, It was not till I came to Tsukiji that I knew the wonderful fish.
Especially, Yonehana’s marinated cold yellowtail bowl is my delight ! No sooner had I heard that Yonehana started serving marinated cold yellowtail bowl on this season and went to there.
Well, Cold yellowtail bowl was on menus as I had heard from my friend 🙂
My marinated cold yellowtail bowl set (寒い時期のブリ漬け丼, 1500 yen) was served !
Sooo fatty as you see !
Those slices of yellowtail was thinner than until last year, and the number of slices increased, and it become easier for me to eat with my chopsticks. Until last year, I worried about that I get tendonitis because the slice of yellowtail was so thick.
Those yellowtail is marinated after guest order it, so it was seasoned lightly, but I didn’t need any soy sauce 😀
