TASTE & FLAVOR: Bluefin tuna meat is the darkest and fattiest of any tuna. A higher fat content in bluefin tuna is equated with a higher-quality product. The flesh is very firm and has a distinctive flavor. It's high fat content makes it especially great for sushi and sashimi.
PREPARATION: Our bluefin tuna is sushi/sashimi grade. We suggest eating it as sushi, sashimi, poke or quickly seared on the grill. Before you start to prepare make sure to pat dry, and remove the bloodline and skin with a sharp knife. If your eating raw we recommend lightly shaving 1mm of the air exposed meat for freshest quality.
