We’re currently completely obsessed with hamachi (also known as yellowtail and Japanese amberjack). It has such a gorgeous rich, yet clean flavor and it is currently our favorite fish to eat raw. We’re so obsessed with hamachi, in fact, that when we saw this picture, we actually emitted a noise that was some unholy cross between a squeal, a moan, and a sigh.
That plateful of heaven came from a Restaurant Week meal at 209. From what we can glean from the menu, the hamachi is chilling with ponzu (check), pickled peppers (check) and sesame brittle (buh guh wha?). Regardless of the mysteriously missing sesame brittle, this looks like a damn fine dish.
