Bluefin Tuna Otoro is prized around the world for its buttery soft, umami flavors and extremely delicate features. Our Bluefin tuna are responsibly caught in the wild, and then ranched in the pristine waters of Baja by Bluefiná. Each and every Bluefin is harvested to order, always utilizing the Ike Jime method to maximize flavor and texture.
Otoro is the belly cut the Bluefin Tuna featuring intense fat marbling resulting in a rich, melt-in-your-mouth buttery flavor and tenderness not found with any other fish. With each bite your palate is pleased with waves of full and rich umami flavor, complemented by a soft and buttery texture. These cuts are typically only found at highest-end sushi bars.
Each piece is perfectly cut as a Saku (or Block), individually packed and shipped using overnight delivery to your door.
**WE ALWAYS RECOMMEND EATING FRESH OTORO THE SAME DAY IT IS RECEIVED**
Note: It is common practice to inject carbon monoxide in Bluefin Tuna to prevent a change in color after long storage. We DO NOT agree with this method and NEVER inject our bluefin tuna with carbon monoxide.
By superfreezing our fresh seafood, in special ultra-cold -60°C freezers, we are able to lock in the freshness and texture of our sushi-grade seafood, while also allowing you to store our products in your conventional freezer for later consumption.
Also, to help many of our customers, most of our superfrozen seafood is shipped out in 8oz portions so you can order more at one time to save on shipping costs, and so you can thaw only the amount you need.
Although superfrozen seafood is extremely convenient for many of our customers, some people still prefer fresh seafood.
If you would prefer fresh cuts, feel free to reach out to place a custom order with us.
Note: "Fresh (never frozen)" seafood needs to be consumed as soon as possible. Do not re-freeze seafood as this will ruin the integrity of the fish.
Time your defrost process to a couple of hours before your meal for the optimal outcome.
Yes and no. Yes, you can refreeze it for a future cooking preparation. No, if you plan on using it for raw preparation.
Yes! We suggest that most super-frozen products may be stored in a conventional freezer for up to 2 months upon usage.
The United States is late to the game... Many countries, including Japan, depend on this technology to assure minimal loss in quality and maximum gain in shelf life.
Delicious! High quality and totally worth the money. Will buy again.
The Otoro was absolutely perfect. It is a miracle to get this at home in the Midwest.
The real japanese one in Japan is much better but this one is ok, the japan one has a lot of fatty delicious marbling.But much cheaper than flying back to Japan.
Excellent otoro tuna for a great price!
A big huge hit with the family. On our second order now and gearing up for monthly deliveries (although we can only afford mostly the lesser and even imperfect cuts for the most part, nevertheless it's all good and yummy for our raw fish loving tummies). Just don't tell everybody as we don't want it going to their heads or their prices. 😁
Tuna I received was a pale pink color when I received it. Didn't look reddish like the first time I ordered. The first time I ordered it wasn't frozen this time because it was I think that's why the color was off. I thought it was spoiled and not fresh so I tossed it.
Thank you for your feedback! O-Toro is actually the fattiest cut of the Bluefin Tuna, giving it that more marbled pink color as opposed to a ruby red Akami (lean cut) or deep pink Chu-Toro (fatty and lean blend)-- So long as your portion arrived on time with all refrigeration intact (and no noticeable damage or spoilage), it should be ready for it's sashimi purposes.
