For Fresh Bluefin Tuna (never frozen): Fresh Bluefin Tuna can be stored in the refrigerator for sashimi use immediately upon arrival. For raw consumption, eat within 1-2 days. Any longer and the tuna will become searing, poke, or cooking grade. You can also freeze these portions immediately upon arrival and store for up to one week for sashimi use or 10 days for poke, searing, and cooking preparations (keep in mind that freezing sashimi grade fish in a conventional home freezer diminishes the quality of the fish. Rule of thumb-- eat it while it's fresh!
For Superfrozen Bluefin Tuna: Superfrozen Bluefin Tuna can be stored in a conventional home freezer for approximately 1.5 weeks before oxidation occurs (change in color).
Method I: Place superfrozen product in cold water (preferably an ice bath) for 15 to 30 minutes, until thawed. Remove the portion from the plastic, pat dry and wrap with our white butcher paper provided. Cut and enjoy within 24 hours.
Method II: Remove the portion from the plastic bag, wrap with a paper towel and place in the refrigerator overnight. Cut and enjoy within 24 hours.
Riviera Seafood Club's Pacific Bluefin Tuna Toro is prized around the world for its rich, meaty flavor and 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 theIke Jime method to maximize flavor and texture.
The Toro Cut has one of the higher fat contents of the Bluefin Tuna cuts and we highly recommend trying it as sushi or sashimi. 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.
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.
I received the order the day it was scheduled, it came nicely packed and cold. The quality of the fish was outstanding I ordered o-toro and akami both were of the highest quality and were eaten raw. I highly recommend this company to anyone!
Toro was like butter. Will be ordering again shortly.
Excellent Toro & Chutoro
Got my two-day Saturday delivery without a hitch. The Toro and Chitoro were fantastic! Thank you.
This cut of tuna is absolutely delicious. If you’re looking for the melt-in-your mouth, perfectly marbled, sushi/sashimi grade tuna- you’ve found it. It arrived fresh and exactly on time, packaged well, and the customer service was outstanding.
Couldn’t ask for more
To begin with we ordered 2 or 3 days before New Year’s Eve and the package arrived New Year’s Eve (as promised). The toro and wagyu were amazing. We also placed an order for Christmas Eve (two or three days before) and received the same service. Will definitely order again!
Awesome New year eve dinner
Everything is good, everyone is satisfied!
Wonderful addition to the menu. All the flavor of the Otoro but a lower price point. Can’t imagine cost of a serving in a restaurant!
