Akami of Big-eye tuna is more like A5 Japanese Wagyu’s Top Round! Great tuna flavor of lean!!
With 2.5lb pack, you get Sashimi for 4 people (10oz/280g Sashimi/people), meaning you can have super fresh Tuna Akami 10oz sashimi at $34!!!
The meat of Big-eye tuna has less fat compared to Blue-fin tuna, so the taste is light, but both red meat and middle-fat is in good balance.
There are various dishes that can be enjoyed such as carpaccio, pickles, wood fried and simmered dishes with eyeballs.
Akami is the leanest part of tuna and is described to be meatier and has a bolder taste profile. If you ask for ‘Maguro (Tuna)’ at a restaurant, or order any kind of tuna roll or sushi without requesting ‘Toro,’ you will get this cut.
