Fish of fortune: traditional and authentic

There’s a truly unique story behind Hamachi. In Japan, this fish is actually known as the fish of fortune. We explain why below.

Hamachi has a different name at each stage of growth. A new-born fish is known as mojako, while a fish larger than 80 cm is called buri. This changing name makes it seem as though the fish is achieving a promotion. That’s why Japanese people often eat this fish at New Year. It brings good luck and prosperity to those eating it.

Farmed Hamachi meat is white and has a characteristic mild flavour. The texture is firmest when the fish is caught in autumn and winter, which is also when the fat content is highest and the fish is full of flavour.
