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.
