Consuming raw or undercooked meats, poultry, seafood, shellfish, or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness.

Culinary possibilities abound with this block-Cut Saku Tuna. Serve it raw, seared, or grilled, seasoned with one of our Spice Packs, or coated in sesame seeds.

Here are some general timings for searing or grilling your tuna.

Sear or gill keeping the block intact. For best results, do not sear or grill this tuna in precut strips.
In a very hot oiled pan or grill, cook tuna:

- 1-2 minutes per side for rare preparation

2-3 minutes per side for medium rare preparation

It is not recommended to serve this fish above medium rare due to its firm texture and flavor.

Consuming raw or undercooked meats, poultry, seafood, shellfish, or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness.

This tuna is fished in the Western Pacific Ocean, cut and trimmed from the top loins of the Yellowfin Tuna, fresh frozen, and individually vacuum packed. Our Saku Tuna has been super-frozen at
-40 degrees Celsius in under an hour to eliminate deterioration of the cells in the meat. The result is a noticeably firmer texture garnering it it’s AAA rating.

Our products are flash frozen upon cultivation and are kept that way until you are ready to enjoy these premium offerings.
