We can eat yellowtails all year around. Even among them, yellowtails being caught from December to next February is called “寒鰤 (winter yellowtails or cold yellowtails)”. Winter yellowtails are just before spawning and have plenty of fat. It’s awesome. Though I don’t eat yellowtails so much, winter yellowtails are special for me 🙂
Yonehana (米花) in Tsukiji Market serves marinated winter yellowtail bowl in this season only. I ate it last year, too.
This is Winter yellowail bowl ! Now, this is my annual task to eat it !
There were six thick-sliced winter yellowtail on the rice. Rice can’t be seen. I took a big bite into those slices of winter yellowtail like a beast.
Just like oysters and soft roe, winter yellowtail became necessity foods for me to eat in every cold season.
