Hon Katsuo (Skipjack Tuna) カツオ


Katsuo flesh must be extremely fresh when used for sushi and sashimi, because the delicate flesh quickly degrades, making it nearly impossible to produce clean cuts. It can be served raw as sashimi or sushi as pictured above with the skin seared to make it soft.

Perhaps the most iconic preparation of katsuo is tataki, in which the entire loin of the fish is grilled enough to cook the outside, but leave the center raw.
