Sakana – High Quality Japanese Seafood Supplier Online [MEDIA DROP]

Aomori Scallop Japan 

Sakana is a Japanese seafood supplier that meticulously select high-quality seafood from Japan and around the world. Since 1971, Sakana has been supporting the Japanese Fishery Industry in distributing their catches and also fulfilling the salmon demand across Japan. Now, Sakana has brought their expertise and experience to the Singapore market to quench our thirst in high-quality seafood. 

In September 2020, Sakana officially launches its online store targeting the consumer or household market in Singapore. Previously, Sakana only supplied to the F&B market. 

For this Media Drop, I received Kabayaki Unagi Fillet ($15), Crab Cream Croquette 20 pcs pack ($15.10) and Aomori Scallop Japan 500g / pkt ($33.20). 

Kabayaki Unagi Fillet

Kabayaki Unagi Fillet
As unagi lovers, the first thing that I tried is their Unagi. The unagi weight is around 250gram, individual vacuum pack and freeze. The unagi is prepared in traditional Japanese grill, to ensure the authentic taste. To reheat, simply defrost and microwave it for 1 minute.

Unagi Don

The flesh is soft, fatty and juicy. The marinate is a perfect balance of sweet and savoury. As the unagi sauce content is only about 8 to 10%, I get to enjoy more meat in each pack. For 250gram of unagi, I can easily make 3 unagi don and satisfied 3 pax dinner. Plus, I find the overall taste of the unagi tastes better than those served in most Japanese restaurant in Singapore. During the recent 10.10 sale, I bought 10 packs of the Kebayaki Unagi Fillet to share with friends and family. Yum Yum. 

The Fatty Unagi
For the Crab Cream Croquette, we did it two ways. One with an air fryer and the other is deep frying with oil. The air fryer method produced an attractive light golden colour croquette. The exterior is crisp, yet feel a bit dry. The fillings are cooked throughout and you can taste the creamy potato infused with crab flavour. However, I also notice that some of the fillings leaked in the air fryer as the croquettes expanded.

The deep-frying method resulted in a dark brown colour, likely due to mistake in temperature control. The exterior is crispy, while the fillings just burst when you bit into it. The deep-frying method still best to cook the croquettes.

The Fillings
The Aomori Scallops from Japan looks plump, juicy and irresistible. LD and I decided to cook it with butter and garlic lemon sauce. The scallops were sweet and plump. The richness of the butter and the lemon, just accentuate the natural flavours nicely. The whole family enjoy the delicious scallops.
