Description
 

In Japan, a bluefin tuna is graded by the quality of the cuts of meat which can be obtained from it, particularly the prized belly fat known as toro. Our frozen, boneless sashimi grade bluefin (thunnus maccoyii) belly loins originate from tuna. The toro from these bluefin are used to make the highest quality toro maguro in sushi bars. The high fat content of bluefin toro results in meat that is pink to white color with a rich, buttery taste. Toro is best enjoyed as sashimi or in sushi. We do not recommend cooking it.

For this product to maintain its highest quality, we recommend adhering to the following defrosting instructions:

Materials

Bowl

Salt

Plastic Food Wrap

Teaspoon

Thermometer

Cheesecloth or thin sponge (do not substitute with soft papers such as paper towels or napkins as they may stick to the product)

Instructions:

1. If the product is vacuum packed, remove the packaging prior to defrosting.

2. Prepare lukewarm water (approx 95 degrees Fahrenheit) and add salt at a rate of 2 teaspoons per liter of water.

3. Gently rinse surface of product with cold water.

4. Immerse the product into the prepared lukewarm saltwater solution for 3-5 minutes, depending on size.

5. Remove from saltwater solution and gently rinse with cold water to remove salt from product surface.

6. Gently remove excess moisture from product.

7. Wrap product in sponge or cheesecloth (or hard material kitchen paper). Finish by wrapping in plastic food wrap. Use care to ensure the product is not wrapped too tightly.

8. It is necessary to allow the product to “breathe” to achieve appropriate color. Plastic food wrap should not come in direct contact with the product.

9. Refrigerate 3-5 hours, depending on size.

Additional notes: Product should be consumed within 1 day of defrosting. Color will be compromised after 2 days. During defrosting, you might see the product's shape is partly changing, but this action is a natural phenomenon. Do not freeze the product once it has been defrosted. This will affect the color of the product.

Just melting in the mouth March 7, 2014
Reviewer: RH2O from Alexandria, VA United States  
We all enjoyed this cut of very delicious Toro.  I am Japanese and I have been eating tasty Toro in Japan.  This Toro was close enough quality as Japanese Toro and I will buy it again.

Reviewer: Austin Weddington from Albuquerque, NM United States  
Really loved this cut. Followed thawing directions very closely. Buttery and delicious, very well received by dinner guests. Did not have issues with sinew like other users. Will buy again!

A hit at my party. April 17, 2010
Reviewer: Dutch from TRAVERSE CITY, MI United States  
The Toro I received was very buttery, and tender.  My family are quite experienced sushi consumers and this product was well received.  I only wish I could get it fresh, then I'd consider 5 star rating
