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.
You'll receive 1.5 lbs (24 oz) total of akami and chu-toro bluefin tuna, along with preformed sushi rice pillows and rice sheets that can be used with seaweed sheets. 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.
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.
2 6oz pieces of Chu-Toro Bluefin Tuna | 2 6oz pieces of Akami Bluefin Tuna
2 packs (4 pc) of Sushi Rice Sheets | 2 packs (16 pc) of Sushi Rice Pillows
Note: A typical serving for one sushi piece is 0.5 oz.
This 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:
Bluefin Tuna Akami, distinctively red and meaty in flavor
Rice pillows (preformed sushi rice blocks), ready to be topped with fish or another topping
Rice sheet, can be added to a seaweed sheet for maki rolls
Invite a friend and have a blast making sushi with your favorite toppings!
