Red – Avoid
Hamachi is Japanese for a certain species of Amberjack (Japanese Amberjack) that is farm raised. Hamachi is often confused or substituted for Hiramasa (or Yellowtail), which is also an Amberjack (Yellowtail Amberjack).
Hamachi is technically a farmed yellowtail; with the same fantastic flavor and rich, luxurious texture due to a nice high-fat content but with more dependable availability than its wild counterpart.
