Arrives in 8 ounce or 1 pound fresh portions, wrapped in food-grade absorbent paper, then in a individualized loin bag. Fresh Kampachi can be stored in the refrigerator for sashimi use immediately upon arrival. For raw consumption, eat within 1-2 days. Any longer, the portion will be 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 does slowly diminish the quality of the meat as the cell membrane is not well maintained in conventional home freezers). For best results, eat properly stored frozen portions within 1-2 months of arrival.
