Above: Chu-toro Bluefin Tuna. Wow, check out that marbling!
If you dream of sushi, sashimi, and chirashi, you'll love our Bluefin Tuna Sushi Kit, featuring the silky, meaty, melt-in-your-mouth bluefin tuna.
Choose between our premium Chu-toro and Akami Bluefin Tuna Sushi Kit (2.25 lbs tuna), or our Akami-only Bluefin Tuna Sushi Kit (1.5 lbs tuna). If you're not familiar, chu-toro is the perfect blend of rich, unctuous texture and meaty flavor, and is relatively rare since it makes up a small part of the fish. Akami is distinctively bright red in color and more meaty in flavor, and makes up the largest part of the fish. Both bundles will come with 2 packs each of our sushi rice pillows and sushi rice sheets (see images below).
Bluefin Tuna Sushi Kit:
2 6oz pieces of Chu-Toro Bluefin Tuna | 4 6oz pieces of Akami Bluefin Tuna | 2 sushi rice sheets | 2 packs sushi rice pillows (8 pc/pack)
Akami Bluefin Tuna Sushi Kit:
4 6oz pieces of Akami Bluefin Tuna | 2 sushi rice sheets | 2 packs sushi rice pillows (8 pc/pack)
Note: A typical serving for one sushi piece is 0.5 oz.
Our akami and chu-toro is from the world's first sustainably certified bluefin tuna fishery. It is incredibly rare, as it comes from one single vessel off the Northwest coast of Ireland that only catches around 292 tuna annually. The vessel takes incredible care for the tuna caught, and has installed 2-inch padding to avoid bruising the tuna. The fishing grounds are strictly managed, and produce premium quality tuna, with the highest fat content and marbling. Then, it is immediately stored at -60°C in special super freezers. The tuna stays in top-notch condition at this temperature, surpassing fresh tuna for quality and consistency.
This frozen bundle will be shipped with dry ice, to maintain your tuna at peak freshness. After you receive it, please thaw the tuna using the following method:
