Yellowtail fishing can be a dream come true on any
Saturday morning, especially if you manage to catch
a couple. Last Saturday, that's what happened to me,
fishing off La Jolla. As usual, I couldn't wait to get
home to grill up some hamachi fish.
My new recipe grills my fresh caught yellowtail
collars and its head. I eaten both before. The end
result is delicate, gelatinous, and juicy beyond belief.
Also, watch the video to be surprised at how my
dinner guests enjoyed eating various parts of the
hamachi fish yellowtail head, including the eyeballs...

Hamachi Fish, Collars, Head and Tail (serves 4)
1 yellowtail collar, scaled, cleaned and cut in half
1 yellowtail head, cleaned and cut in half
1 yellowtail tail section cleaned and scaled
1 cup of soy sauce
6 tablespoons of molasses
1 lemon, juiced
¼ cup vegetable oil
Get Ready To Start Cook Hamachi Fish
1. First, preheat your grill until you reach 500F.
2. Start by brushing and applying vegetable oil to the
skin of the yellowtail collars, head and tail.
3. Next, create soy sauce marinade and baste by
mixing the soy sauce, fresh lemon juice and molasses.
Now, pour into two separate containers while creating
one for the marinading and one for basting.
4. Start brushing on the marinade to the flesh side of
the collars and head of the yellowtail until completely
coated. Remember while applying the marinade, not
to marinade the already oiled skin. Discard the
remaining soy marinade.
5. And now start grilling the head, collars, and tail for
about 4-5 minutes on each side while achieving good
color and caramelization.
6. Finally, place in a serving platter and then pour the
second container of soy marinade baste over the
hamachi fish. Enjoy.
