Akami of Yellow-tuna is more like A4 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 $31!!!
The Akami of Yellow-fin tuna is a light red color close to pink and the taste is a light with no sharpness. The fat is low so the Toro part cannot be taken out but the meat is firm, so it’s perfect for sashimi or steak. It’s called Ahi in Hawaii, and it’s popular.
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.
