Yellowfin Tuna – Loin Cut
$58.00 ($29.00 / lb) - Appr. 2 lb(s)
Our Yellowfin Tuna is #1 sushi grade quality. When it comes to sushi-grade tuna, freshness is key. That is why we prepare your order the day it ships out of our facility.
To grade the Yellowfin, we use a Sashibo. The Sashibo is a Japanese-made metal probe that removes a thin core from the fish. When grading we assess the color, fat content, and texture of the fish; if it doesn’t meet our high standards, we send it back.
Full-flavored and steak like, Yellowfin is perfect served as:
- Lightly seared on the grill or broiler
Yellowfin Tuna are in high demand when sold as “#1 Grade” quality. When landed in Hawaii, this tuna is called “Ahi” – literally “fire” in Hawaiian, probably a reference to its flashing appearance in the water with its vibrant yellow coloring.
Available as a 2 Lb Loin Cut Avg. Skin-Off. Fresh, never frozen. Sushi-grade
