Buri

ぶり | Adult wild yellowtail
Type: Shiromi
Season: Winter

Not much confuses me more in the sushi world than the English translations of the fish in the Yellowtail/Amberjack family. Buri is probably the most straight forward: it’s an adult yellowtail, caught in the wold. Like like its relatives, its taste is a wonderful harmony between marbled and a traditionally fishy taste. The difference though, is seasonality; Buri is considered a classic Winter Neta.
