TASTE & FLAVOR: Our Ahi is both big eye and yellowfin tuna. It has a medium-mild flavor with very firm texture and a large flake. Ahi Tuna is more flavorful than albacore and less fatty than bluefin. The medium fat content makes Ahi Tuna an all around crowd pleaser.
PREPARATION: Our ahi tuna is sushi/sashimi grade. We suggest eating it as sushi, sashimi, poke or quickly seared on the grill. Before you start cooking make sure to clean off the fish, pat dry, and remove the bloodline and skin with a sharp knife.
