Riviera Seafood Club's Fresh Albacore ('Binnaga Maguro' in Japanese) is a staple to the seafood diet. Our Albacore tuna are long-line caught in the wild, and then offloaded locally in California.
Albacore is typically a more lean tuna, often seared lightly or cooked quickly so as not to dry out. A simple fish, easy to approach and with a hint of light umami to wash over your taste buds, complemented by a semi-soft texture.
Each piece is perfectly cut as a Saku (or Block), individually packed and shipped using overnight delivery to your door.
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.
