Description
 

In Hawaii, the commonly used term “ahi” refers to two species, the yellowfin tuna and the bigeye tuna. Yellowfin have a slimmer profile than bigeye; and smaller yellowfin are also called “shibi” in Hawaii.

Yellowfin ahi tuna provides a firm texture with a mild flavor. Its flesh ranges from pink in small fish to deep cherry red in larger fish. Larger fish are likely to boast a higher fat content, making them the preference for raw preparations. Ahi sushi is one of the most popular items among sushi fans. In addition to sashimi, sushi and poke, ahi tuna is excellent grilled, broiled or seared rare. It stands up to a variety of seasonings including blackening spice.

Our fresh sashimi grade yellowfin tuna, or ahi (ah-hee), has a tender and mild flavor that is great for pan searing or making sushi. Yellowfin sashimi is known as maguro in sushi bars. It has a lower fat content than bluefin, which gives it a lighter taste. The wild tuna is caught in boats by long line. We carry yellowfin tuna year round, but sometimes it will be unavailable due to weather and supply conditions.

The yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares ) is a species of tuna found in pelagic waters of tropical ad subtropical oceans worldwide. Among the larger tuna species, yellowfin can get as long as six feet and up to 400 pounds but the average weight is 60 to 100 pounds.

Tuna comes SKIN ON. We remove most of the bloodline, but some bloodline is still present.

ahi tuna May 22, 2014
Reviewer: Jason from Durham, NC United States  
i have ordered this product about 3-4 times. most of the time, it's good quality and with minimal fuss. occasionally, there is some flesh that is so dark that it's basically black. the black sections don't have a fishy odor or taste like bloodline so i imagine that they are edible like the little black part of katsuo tataki. i wish the fish would be sold in longitundinal loin cuts instead of transverse filets because trying to figure out the most optimal cut against the grain with these 1" filets is not always easy.

Great quality and very fresh April 21, 2013
Reviewer: Tom S from Huntersville, NC United States  
I bought 4 lbs of this Ahi at the end of last week. Arrived promptly the next day and was very fresh. Very very minimal blood line on it - only a few ounces maybe? - which is great in that you're wasting very little of what you've purchased.

I've been having most of this sashimi style with just a little bit of soy sauce and it's excellent - as good as any I've had at local sushi places. Also did some as a tartare or poke style with fried won tons - good as well.

Will definitely be ordering more in the future!

Worth every penny January 15, 2013
Reviewer: Rawonly from Huntington Beach, CA United States  
Just finished my first order. Every bite was delicious and had great texture. I have been advised to eat less beef and more fish. I only eat raw fish so this company is a great find so far. The fresh Salmon s awesome too.
