Yellowfin saku block

Yellowfin Saku (Akami / Maguro), Wild Sashimi Grade Ahi

In Japan the term saku means block. Saku is commonly served as maguro in sushi bars. Because of its uniformity, yellowfin saku is often preferred by Japanese chefs for sashimi and other sliced presentations.

Ideal for making ahi sushi or for pan searing, our premium yellowfin saku is boneless and skinless with blood line removed. It has been super-frozen at -40 degrees Celsius in under an hour to eliminate deterioration of the cells in the meat. The result is a noticeably firmer texture. It has also been treated with carbon monoxide (CO) for color enhancement.

This wild product originates in Asia and is provided by Krimson, a brand known by chefs for consistent quality and exact portions. Frozen/vacuum packed pieces are approximately 11 oz each.

Yellowtail For Sashimi

Albacore Loin (Shiro Maguro), Wild Pacific Sashimi Grade Tuna

Albacore (Thunnus alaunga) is the only tuna species which may be marketed as “white meat tuna” in the U.S. When prepared for sushi, it is known as shiro maguro.

Albacore offers a rich yet mild flavor profile and desirable texture that’s firm like other tunas but less so than Ahi. Albacore also has a higher fat content than Ahi, resulting in a richness of taste and melt-in-your mouth texture that makes it an excellent alternative to bluefin toro. When cooked, its pink meat turns white and provides dense texture with large, moist flakes.

The Fishery

Our sashimi grade albacore is harvested from the U.S. Northern Pacific at “the cold-water edge,” where the warm tropical water meets cold arctic currents. “Surface Catch” out of these areas produces some of the highest oil content albacore tuna in the world. Fish are brought aboard the vessel live, immediately bled and Frozen at Sea (FAS) by being placed in blast freezers within minutes of being caught. In the blast, heat is quickly extracted, and the core temperature of the whole fish is pulled down to a minimum of – 20° F. Stringent handling and rapid freezing guarantee this product is of the highest sashimi-grade quality.

Sustainability

This particular sashimi grade Pacific albacore is certified to the MSC Fisheries Standard, a science-based set of requirements for sustainable fishing.
