About This Cut - O-toro is the highest quality part of the bluefin belly and most sought after by fatty tuna lovers. Bluefin tuna will yield a very small amount of o-toro. It has extreme marbling and flavor - truly a unique culinary experience. Found next to kama-toro (very fatty cut closest to the collar) and between regular toro (tuna belly).
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 Seared Otoro Tuna (Aburi Toro) 炙りとろ or Otoro 2 Ways.
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.
