Tasty and fragrant, and its appearance will stimulate your taste buds.
Juhousuisan’s Kabosu-buri (kabosu-fed yellowtail)
The Kabosu-fed yellowtail is
a new brand of fish farmed
local kabosu citrus fruit
mixed in the feed.
Yellowtail fillets can be delicious for several days after dressing. Compared with amberjack and greater amberjack, the dark red parts of the flesh called “chiai” discolors quickly. Therefore, yellowtail used to have a problem that its commodity value dropped due to its poor appearance.
The Oita Prefectural Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Research Instruction Center conducted research into this and developed a method to add kabosu juice to the feed.
The antioxidant action of polyphenols and vitamin C contained in kabosu citrus fruit suppresses the discoloration of the flesh. Furthermore, the effect of limonene contained in kabosu citrus fruit suppresses the fish smell. Kabosu-fed yellowtail is a “recommended gem” that has three advantages―it tastes good, has a savory scent, and looks good.

Well-known only to those in the know
Juhousuisan’s Oita amberjack
Amberjack, as well as yellowtail and greater amberjack, are species of Seriola. As the amount of amberjack landed is small, it has been called a luxury fish well-known only to those in the know.
It tastes light in summer and puts on fat in winter. Please relish Oita amberjack that is tasty all year round.
Taking pride in the moderately tightened flesh and fat
