Crustaceans & Shellfish
The umami goodness of fresh crustaceans and shellfish
Japan’s crustaceans and shellfish are known all over the world. Rich with the briney, addictive taste of the sea, this seafood is flown straight to your doorstep within 36 hrs of being caught in Japanese waters.
What’s in season?
1. King Crab / Tarabagani
One of the most sought-after crustaceans worldwide, Red King Crab is a meaty delicacy with a very sweet taste. Often boiled, it also has a melt-on-your-tongue quality when uncooked.
2. Scallops / Karatsuki Hotate
Large and sweet, these wonderfully versatile scallops can be used in many dishes. Eat them sautéed, grilled, steamed, or even raw!
3. Oysters / Kaki
Always popular, Japanese oysters are often eaten fried (as “kaki furai”) in the autumn and winter. Most of them come from Hiroshima around this time.
