Bluefin Tuna (akami)
Currently the most prized fish in sushi, Bluefin Tuna for sushi comes in three cuts:
- "Akami", which is the reddest and most lean part. Similar to Yellowfin Tuna. (this product)
- "Chutoro", which is the cut with a medium amount of fat in.
- "Otoro", which comes from the belly and is the fattest part. Similar to Hamachi.
Traditionally akami was the most desirable Tuna cut, although today it is otoro which is in vogue. Chutoro gives the best of both worlds. To understand why Bluefin Tuna for sushi is super frozen, read our blog post here.
