Tuna - Hon Maguro Chūtoro, Frozen (Japan) - avg 0.5 lb
Hon Maguro Chūtoro / 本マグロ中トロ - This is a perfect blend of otoro and akami. This part of the tuna is meaty and red, with a nice fatty texture for a real celebration in your mouth. It makes up such a small amount of the fish that it takes a whole fish to make one chutoro sashimi platter!
Upon receiving the product, please place directly into your freezer. We suggest consuming within 3 days. Due to the delicate nature of this cut of tuna, the saku is vacuum-sealed and stored in a deep-freezer (-70 F). A regular home freezer will not be able to preserve the color and taste of this tuna for more than 5 days.
How to defrost:
We recommend taking the vacuum-sealed fish from the freezer no more than 2 hours before eating, and defrost in bowl of water and ice. When defrosting, the fish must be kept in a vacuum sealed bag for safety and to preserve the flavor. Do not refreeze tuna.
