Maine Bluefin Toro
$115.00 ($38.33 / lb)
Out of stock
Available as a three-pound TORO cut.
Loin makes up 4/5 of the sellable bluefin whereas the toro is only 1/5. For this reason the loin is more readily in stock than the toro.
Bluefin tuna is the fattiest and largest in the tuna family, making this fish truly iconic. You can expect deep, cherry red meat and the firmness of raw beefsteak. We only purchase fish that are responsibly caught by line and harpoon in our local Maine waters, harvested under strict quota regulations during the summer months when the fish migrate north. Every tuna we purchase is graded on-site to confirm its quality rating using a sashibo (a Japanese-made sharp metal probe that removes a thin core from the fish) to evaluate the flesh for color, visible fat content, and texture.
This fish is the perfect choice for sashimi at home or seared on on the grill. The toro tastes and cooks very similarly to a fatty steak.
