Our sushi-grade albacore tuna loins are delivered to your door and make a fast and healthy omega-3 rich meal. These boneless tuna loins can be enjoyed raw or cooked, depending on your preference. This buttery, decadent fish is excellent seared rare, but it also makes for a wonderful addition to a sushi plate.
No matter which preparation you choose, we guarantee a high-quality experience. Each tuna is blast-frozen at sea just minutes after being caught. This helps to preserve its taste and texture. The tuna remains frozen until it reaches your kitchen. When you get albacore tuna loins delivered from Lummi Island Wild, you can feel secure that they are never thawed – even during processing.
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 loin while still partially frozen. Garnish with ginger and wasabi or Italian carpaccio style with lemon, capers and a good olive oil.”
Handling Instructions – Tuna Loins Delivered
When you have our albacore tuna loins delivered to your door, they will arrive vacuum-sealed and frozen in a refrigerated box. Once thawed, they’ll be ready to eat – sashimi style. If you prefer cooked fish, you can prepare to your ideal taste. If you’ve never prepared tuna yourself, we recommend a simple sear on your stovetop. This is a great way to preserve the fish’s natural flavor while adding some delicious heat and texture.
If you’re cooking albacore tuna for the first time, do your best to avoid overcooking the loins. Quick, high heat is the secret to a moist tuna steak – try anything else and you risk a dry piece of meat. Remember that tuna will continue to cook for several minutes once removed from the heat, so be conservative in your timing.
We recommend cooking them over medium-high heat for between 6 and 9 minutes. You’ll know it’s cooked when the fish begins to flake when tested with a fork but remains pink in the center.
Our tuna ships frozen. When your albacore tuna loins are delivered, keep them refrigerated for up to 7 days. If you prefer to save your purchase for later, the tuna will remain fresh for around two months when kept frozen.
