How do you prepare Hamachi

What is the difference between Hamachi and Buri

Hamachi is sometimes called Buri depending on its size. During the Warring States period, there was a custom that samurai had changed their names when they became adults or when they were promoted. Following this, fishes that change their names in order as they grow up are called promoting fish (Shusse Uo).

What does it mean,
Cho-Rei-Kun?

Cho-rei-kun is an unique cold smoking process which is conducted under colder temperatures than traditional cold smoking using CO gas to prevent oxidation and discoloration. This method does not add any smoky flavors to the fish. While it normally takes more than 12 hours to process frozen Hamachi, Cho-rei-kun process completes it within 3 hours by using a special technique to draw the blood, resulting in more freshness and less drip. This method is an energy saving and zero-emission production method.
