  Wild Sashimi Grade Yellowtail Fillets
Fresh Wild Sashimi Grade Yellowtail Fillets


Select the quantity (in pounds) of Wild Yellowtail Sashimi you wish to purchase.

Our Price: $22.99

Quantity in Stock:9


Our wild California yellowtail sashimi fillets are frequently used to make the highest quality hamachi sushi in sushi bars. The boneless skinless meat is firm and full flavored with an excellent fat content -- though lower fat content than farmed yellowtail. The lower fat content makes wild yellowtail an equally good choice for sushi applications or pan searing.

The yellowtail is a sleek migratory fish similar to the tuna and recognized by its yellow tail and a yellow stripe across its body. Wild yellowtail is harvested year round, but more commonly during summer along the Pacific coast and the Sea of Cortez. They are caught primarily with hook and line, and their average weight is 10 to 20 lbs.

Not the Buttery feel like Sushi Restaurants March 13, 2015
Reviewer: Cheryl Jordan from Crofton, MD United States  
I was excited to buy this fish and couldn't wait to try it. Like the other review, it's not like the Buttery feel in the mouth like you get in sushi restaurants. I don't recommend this for sashimi. I used it to make yellowtail rolls. And I probably will just cook the rest of it. I was sadly disappointed. Im only giving 3 stars because it was fresh and not fishy. It says fresh, but it was slightly frozen upon arrival.

Fresh but too much sinew March 7, 2014
Reviewer: Daniel F. from San Francisco, CA United States  
Okay, don't get me wrong, this is a great price for fresh WILD yellowtail. Fish arrived partially frozen though, but not fishy smelling. I tried making sashimi out of the 2lb cut I had and was disappointed in mouth feel. Not buttery like sushi-grade I've bought before n the San Francisco Bay Area (for ~$23 a pound). It's not a good sign when you have to work to chew a piece of sashimi. You can make it into sashimi, but it's a better idea to sear it or even grill it.

Fishy, fishy February 17, 2014
Reviewer: lmlwilliams from scottsdale, AZ United States  
I don't think I'll be ordering this ever again. The fish I received didn't smell, look or taste "sashimi-grade" at all. I've had plenty of yellowtail, and this one just was too fishy and not texturally right- it was tougher than what we're used to eating. Don't know if I just got one bad one but I ended up just using most of it for spicy rolls instead of nigiri/sashimi.  Shipping was fast and it was packaged well- I will order from Catalina OP again just not this same yellowtail.

excellent quality March 8, 2013
Reviewer: MTC from Leavenworth, WA United States  
We have ordered this a few times. It is excellent quality. We eat it sashimi style, and it rivals- or is often better than most sushi places we eat out at.

The only thing... is that while it may be 'fresh', it usually freezes during shipping with the dry ice bringing down the temp of the box... so you usually need to thaw it out. It's not as rock solid as the frozen fillets, but it still takes some time to thaw.
