Freshly Frozen Yellowfin Ahi Tuna Steak (8 oz. per piece) Individual vacuum pack.

Flavor Profile

Yellowfin tuna has a mild, meaty flavor — similar, some say, to swordfish. It’s more flavorful than albacore, but leaner than bluefin. The meat is bright red in its raw state but, when cooked, turns brown to grayish-tan, firm and moist, with large flakes.

Cooking Tips

Yellowfin is excellent raw, but for grilling and broiling, cut steaks 1 1/2 inches thick. The tuna needs little flavor enhancement; just brush with olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning. For a milder taste, remove the dark lateral line from the meat. Tuna can also marinate for several hours without becoming “cooked.” Try a marinade of white wine, a little oil and some brown sugar for an hour or two before grilling.

Defrosting Fish in the refrigerator overnight is the best way because it ensures that it's never warm enough to give food-borne bacteria a chance to multiply.  If the fish is thin enough, you may get away with defrosting in the morning, if you plan to cook in the evening.  Do not remove fish from package, just place on a plate or directly on the shelf in your refrigerator.   
If you need to quickly defrost, the next best way is:
  • Do not remove the fish from the vacuum pack, this will help preserve the flavor when defrosting in cold water. 
  • Place the fish in a shallow dish or bowl submerged in cold water. Do not use warm or hot water, this will change the texture of the fish and can create food safety hazard.
  • You can leave the water running with a tiny bit of narrow stream of water running into the bowl or dish. Or you can change water out every 20 minutes until completely defrosted.
  • Remove fish from package, rinse with water, and pat dry with paper towel. Use the thawed fish immediately to ensure best results!
