About This Cut - Chu-toro is a medium fatty cut. This cut is a mix of akami (tuna loin) and toro (tuna belly), found closest to the skin on both the top and bottom loins. It is richer in flavor and more buttery than akami.
Yield - 1 portion is 3-4 oz. Each saku block yields enough slices to make up to 10 pieces of nigiri or 16 pieces of maki (two uncut maki rolls).
Easy Sushi Recipes - This super frozen, hand-cut saku block has been designed to make restaurant quality sushi, sashimi, ceviche, poke and crudo at home. For a simple option, slice to desired sashimi thickness with a sharp knife, and serve with soy sauce. For more inspiration, try Chūtoro Nigiri or Chutoro Yakitori.
Health Benefits - Bluefin tuna is a very good source of protein, thiamin, selenium, vitamin B6, and omega-3 fatty acids.
Did You Know - This wild-caught bluefin tuna is landed in Massachusetts. Bluefin is the largest of our local tuna species, and the fattiest. U.S. wild-caught western Atlantic bluefin tuna is a smart seafood choice because it is sustainably managed under a conservation and management plan that allows limited harvest by U.S. fishermen.
