Prized by sushi fanatics, this albacore tuna is very special.  Caught off the coast of Washington state while they are building up fat for winter and a long migration across the Pacific Ocean, what makes these tuna loins even more special is the catch and handling methods of our fishermen. Line-caught, blast frozen immediately upon reaching the boat, freshness is preserved making for a tuna that is perfect for making sushi and poke.

All our prices include shipping to the United States!

Product Description

Albacore tuna is caught all over the world. But it is widely regarded among sushi chefs that the line-caught albacore tuna caught off our Pacific Northwest Coast is the best tasting and most nutritious. And it’s sustainably caught. Our line-caught albacore tuna  is considered one of the healthiest fish on the planet, both for body and planet. Line-caught  albacore tuna caught off the Pacific Northwest coast gets a “Super Green” rating from the Monterey Bay Seafood Watch and is MSC-Certified.

These albacore tuna are not just line-caught, they’re blast frozen immediately on the boat for supreme quality. In our fishermen-owned co-op, a great number of our salmon and halibut fishermen scream with glee when these albacore tuna loins are available, as their boats are frequently provisioned with our canned tuna as well.

If you’ve had our popular albacore tuna medallions, these are the loins from which the medallions are cut. And you might prefer the loins over the medallions if you’d like more control in how thick you’d like your sushi rolls. These loins are cut in half, and then vacuum-sealed in eight to nine-ounce packages.

When making sushi, it is much easier to cut these loins when they are still partially frozen.

Customers tend to do 3 things with the loins:

1) Make Hawaiian-style poke. See this wonderful albacore tuna poke recipe.

2) Make sushi rolls with your sharp knife, some rice and seaweed.

-and-

3) Sear them for no longer than 2 minutes a side so they are beautifully pink and rare inside and browned and slightly crispy on the outside.

Most importantly, you should enjoy these albacore tuna loins. They are something special.

Each 5-pound box should contain 5 pounds of albacore tuna loins, which are cut in half, vacuum-sealed in packages averaging 7 to 10 ounces.

    tuna: seems best marinated in a bit of olive oil salt and pepper, then rolled across a Le Creseut griddle pan (https://www.lecreuset.com/extra-large-double-burner-grill) for about 30 seconds each of the 3 sides. If I’m feeling generous I make a garlic cream sauce (french style) then serve on a bed of rice with the sauce drizzled over it. Everyone loves it and it’s < 20 mins prep time start to finish.

    I’ve tried many other options inc a light soy/chili sauce and a tomato/cilantro/celery salsa, which we love,

    I’m always skeptical of buying tuna in my grocery store not knowing how fresh or where it’s from. I didn’t have to worry about the Alaska Gold brand. They are frozen in perfect portion sizes. I just thawed them in my fridge, put a nice pepper coating and flash fried them in some olive oil. Observed it over a wasabi mayo with a layer of pea shoots just like my favorite sushi restaurant. Awesome!

    Years ago, when I lived in San Diego, I caught many albacore tuna. These mini fillets arrived in perfect shape and equal or exceed the flavor of those I brought home from the sport fishing boats. Make a simple marinade, soak then for 3 or 4 hours and pop them on the grill. Sear them for a couple of minutes on each side and they will melt in your mouth. Do NOT over cook. Enjoy!

    I made the Tuna Poke last night using the sashimi albacore tuna medallions (recipe on this site)–it was incredible! It is hard to believe that we can get such amazing, fresh tasting fish to prepare such delicious dishes in our own kitchen! It never tastes this good and fresh from the grocery store or even from the local fish markets. I originally ordered the sampler pack which comes with some of this albacore, and, after my family and I salivated over the tuna poke, I immediately had to place another order for the tuna medallions. I am having some friends over for dinner next Saturday and I am hoping that it arrives in time so that I can prepare it. It is a dish that will really “wow” my guests!

    We love having these in our freezer! A snap to prepare and equally at home in a simple weeknight dinner or for an impressive dinner party! We often do a simple sear and serve with soy sauce and sliced avocado.
