Albacore Tuna Loin Medallions

(13 customer reviews)

6 oz Sushi-Grade Albacore Tuna Medallions

Clear

Description

We ship albacore tuna medallions right from the source. These medallions are troll caught by albacore pioneer Paul Hill, ensuring the fish are humanely handled throughout the process. Just minutes after each catch, the tuna is blast frozen while still at sea, preserving its delicate, succulent texture. Our albacore medallions are then processed while frozen, allowing the fish to retain the best-possible taste for when it eventually reaches your doorstep.

Our sushi-grade albacore tuna makes a fast and healthy omega-3 rich meal. We ship albacore tuna medallions frozen and packaged as boneless, 6-ounce pieces that diners can enjoy either raw or cooked. We like to keep a few packages of medallions in the freezer at home, ensuring we are never more than a few minutes away from a delicious, healthy meal.

 

Fisherman’s Tip – By Riley Starks 

“For Japanese style sashimi, using a very sharp knife, slice the tuna into thin slices that are translucent. For best results, cut the medallions while still partially frozen. Garnish with ginger and wasabi or Italian carpaccio style with lemon, capers and a good olive oil.”

 

Handling Instructions – Albacore Medallions 

We ship albacore tuna medallions packed with dry ice, which helps to maintain a safe temperature. After thawing, they will be ready to eat, sashimi style. If you prefer your tuna cooked, a simple sear is the perfect preparation. Remember that our tuna medallions are shipped frozen, so they may need some time to thaw before you start the grill.

Importantly, you’ll want to keep an eye on the heat and clock when preparing albacore tuna. When seared, grilled, or baked for too long, the fish’s texture can become dry and rubbery. We recommend a quick cook over medium-high heat, between 6 and 9 minutes. The loin medallion center should still be pink, but the outer skin should flake off when tested with a fork.

Once thawed and refrigerated, tuna will stay good for up to 7 days. If you prefer to save your albacore tuna loin medallions for a later date, they can safely remain frozen for around two months.

    Delicious! They’re very fresh and cut to the perfect size. I used them in a fish Thai curry that was sublime. Buy them. You won’t be disappointed

    Albacore tuna medallions are perfect and sufficient for a quick meal. (We used to order the tuna loins, but we were always left with two days of leftovers.) The medallions are packaged serving-size, thaw quickly, are versatile, and delicious. We usually dust them with a variety of herbs, and spices, (Cajun, Fiesta, Mediterranean, etc.) depending on the menu. A sheen of high-temperature oil on a cast iron skillet and a 20-sec cook of each medallion on the edge and side, yields crusty, perfection in less than 5 minutes. We ordered a dozen packets, but the delivery was hampered by unusual weather delays which could have put the freshness in jeopardy. I notified Lummi of the delay and they immediately sent another, full order which arrived normally in a couple of days.. The packaging was much better than the earlier polystyrene packaging used by Lummi and kept the tuna super cold, sustainably, and is easily recyclable. Thanks for the changes, and great support.

    Lots of bones! Check carefully by feel before cooking. I was excited to receive my first shipment, including several packs of the tuna medallions. They were clearly frozen while very fresh and defrosted great. Was surprised to find there were bones or shards of bones in each of the 5 small pieces in the first pack. So glad I checked before cooking and serving.

    Other note is that the pieces were of wildly varying size/thickness, making cooking more challenging. A few of the 1” thick “medallions” you see in the photos, and several 1/8” thick long ribbons. All in all, I can work with them, but not what I was expecting.

      Thank you for your feedback. Bones and size variation like you describe should not happen. We will be reaching out to follow up with you and make this right.

    Everything I have ordered from Lummi Island Wild has been marvelous. These tuna medallions are no exception. They make a wonderful fresh nicoise salad.

  5. deliane (verified owner)

    delicious and excellent quality. I seared the tuna medallions quickly, insides pink.. then sliced them and made salad nicoise: fingerling potatoes, green beans, cucumber, egg, olives, vinaigrette. perfect for intensely hot, humid summer days.

    First time buyer of the tuna loin medallions. I cooked them as instructed and were unbelievable, so tender and tasty. I will definitely buy again.

  8. Nicole (verified owner)

    Best Tuna ever! And the fact that Lummi Island practices sustainable fishing methods makes them my one and only go-to fishery.

    Best tuna I’ve ever had

    Terrific quality. Fast, friendly and super-competent customer service.

  11. Eric

    We seared these and served them alongside a miso veggie salad which was a perfect pair! Very tasty and tender!

  12. Cindy Johnson (verified owner)

    These are such a favorite! They thaw quickly and we enjoy them pan-fried and served as fish tacos. They are great with jasmine rice and a green vegetable, too! So glad they are available to order again.

  13. Dustin

    We pan-fried the juicy medallions and made a side of roasted balsamic asparagus to round out the meal. It was delicious! The medallions were plump and had our mouths watering before they even hit the pan. Much better than the usual frozen fish selection.
