Akami Big-Eye Tuna

Weight: Approx. 1.0lb

Turn your kitchen table into a high-end sushi restaurant with sashimi grade fish delivery to your home!

The meat of Big-Eye Tuna has less fat compared to Blue-Fin tuna, so the taste is light, but both are 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 with 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.
