Chutoro Blue-Fin Tuna


Weight: Approx. 1.5b

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

This is a perfect blend of Otoro and Akami because it straddles both types of tuna, providing a meaty and fatty texture for a real celebration in your mouth. With toro, the prime meat that comes from the belly of the fish, you have the Otoro and the Chutoro.

“O” means big and “Chu” means medium in Japanese. The word “toro” is derived from the Japanese word of Torokeru which means melt. As it says, Otoro has a marbled, melting texture and is the fattiest part of the maguro.

Blue-Fin Tuna is commonly traded on the best Tokyo markets commanding premium prices. Although sushi includes many various tuna types such as Yellow-fin as well as Big-Eye, excellent quality Otoro and Chutoro is ONLY obtained from Blue-Fin Tuna.
