Roasted striped jack head


"If I see roasted fish head on a menu, I jump at it. My East Village standby, Hasaki, serves them on the reg, and the Striped Jack is one of the more delicious ones I’ve ever tasted. There’s something really enticing about all the succulent meat stuck in the crevices of a fish head and collar bones, and these are always perfectly salted, perfectly roasted, and sprinkled with a squeeze of lemon. I attack with my 'ohashi' (chopsticks) and then, when it’s time to finish it off, with my hands. "
