Hamachi kama question
I'd like to try making Hamachi kama (broiled Yellowtail neck) at home. Does anyone know where I can buy this fish part or the whole fish, ideally in SF? Also, if Yellowtail is not easily available, what would be a good substitute? TIA.
unless a fish market buys hamachi already filleted, they are buying the whole fish. theoretically, the neck is available. any market that sells hamachi sashimi should have the neck also. ask them.
in s.f. check Uoki k. Sakai, 1656 Post ST. (415)921-0515, nijiiya doesn't carry fish.i hear.
Not in SF but in Cupertino there's Marukai, and in Sunnyvale Hankook Market. Salmon (Sake) collar is more readily available, or halibut but I have seen hamachi on occasion.

Nijiya Market has them. Just get there early in the morning especially on weekends since they are gone pretty fast.
