Buy sushi grade albacore tuna

Albacore tuna, also known as shiro maguro (white tuna) by the Japanese, is an extremely versatile fish that is delightful as sashimi, but may also be smoked, grilled, or broiled. Not to be confused with super white tuna (escolar or butterfish), albacore tuna is heart healthy fish that is mild in flavor and less firm than yellowfin tuna. Some chefs prefer to make the meat seem firmer by searing the outside of the entire albacore fillet, and immediately immersing in cold water. This technique tightens the flesh and intensifies the flavor for albacore sushi fans who prefer a more steak-like texture.


My dinner with Nobu

My summary review of Nobu. While Nobu is a great restaurant, you can still find great sushi without the hype.

Sushi grade yellowtail (hamachi)

A great place to buy yellowtail (hamachi). Yellowtail, or hamachi, is a fatty, delicate fish raised specifically for sushi and sashimi in Japan. A relative of tuna, hamachi is known as an “affluent” fish; much like Kobe beef, they are raised in a relaxed, pampered environment promoting a fatty and delicate texture. The benefit of farming is a higher fat content and improved quality of meat.

Buy sushi grade ahi tuna (Maguro)

Ahi Tuna, also know as Yellowfin Tuna or Maguro, is the most popular sushi ingredient in America. Our Maguro is extremely tender and sweet, making it perfect for sushi and sashimi. One of the healthiest choices among sushi grade fish, our Ahi Tuna is cut from the fish loin (akami), the same used in restaurants for nigiri.
