Atlantic Bluefin Toro
BACK ON TUESDAY
Approx. 2 pound toro. Fresh.
The Maine Bluefin Toro makes up only 1/5 of the sellable bluefin. For this reason the loin is more readily in stock than the toro.
Bluefin tuna is the fattiest and largest in the tuna family, making this fish truly iconic. You can expect deep, cherry red meat and the firmness of raw steak. In the summer, we only purchase fish that are responsibly caught by line and harpoon in our local Maine and Nova Scotia waters, harvested under strict quota regulations. Every tuna we purchase is graded on-site to confirm its quality rating using a sashibo (a Japanese-made sharp metal probe that removes a thin core from the fish) to evaluate the meat for color, visible fat content, and texture.
This fish is the perfect choice for sashimi at home or seared on on the grill. Maine Bluefin Toro tastes and cooks similarly to a fatty steak. Check our Tuna Crostini recipe for additional inspiration.
