Tuna lovers prize yellowfin for its wonderful flavor and firm texture, and our sustainably harvested yellowfin is of the very highest quality.

The fish are line-caught by hand, cut into steaks ranging from 5 to 6 oz., vacuum-packed, and flash-frozen to preserve the tuna's fresh-caught quality.

We obtain our yellowfin from the artisanal Indonesian fishery in the Western Central Pacific Ocean, which enjoys a Green/Best-Choice ranking from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program.

Serving yellowfin tuna
Cook yellowfin tuna as you would any firm fish: pan-fry/sauté, stir-fry, grill, broil, or roast.

You can also thaw and serve our yellowfin tuna as sashimi or sushi; the freezing process renders it perfectly safe to serve raw.

You’ll find storage and thawing instructions under our Serving/Care tab, and suggested recipes under our Recipes tab. (Recipes for albacore tuna will work very well with yellowfin tuna.)

About yellowfin tuna
The delicious flesh of these torpedo-shaped, highly migratory fish is highly prized for sashimi and sushi

They’re striking in appearance, with dark, metallic-blue backs, yellow sides, very long fins, silver bellies, and bright yellow “finlets”.

Found throughout the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans, yellowfin tuna form schools with other tuna species, like skipjack and bigeye.

A dolphin-safe fishery
Our yellowfin tuna comes from a sustainable Indonesian hand-line fishery that protects dolphins as it delivers top-quality tuna.

Unlike their Indonesia-area counterparts, yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares) in the eastern tropical Pacific often mingle with dolphins.

In the past, many dolphins drowned in tuna nets off Mexico and southern California. Thanks to stricter U.S. regulations, many fewer dolphins (about 1,000 annually) now die in that region.

Why is our yellowfin tuna red rather than brown?
Yellowfin sold in the U.S. is often exposed to synthetic carbon monoxide (CO) gas.

Exposure to CO gas preserves tuna’s natural reddish-pink color, but will also make old fish appear fresher than it is, because tuna treated with CO stays red even after it spoils.

Instead of synthetic CO gas, our tuna is exposed to filtered, flavorless smoke from certified-pure hardwoods. This preserves the tuna’s natural reddish-pink color, but it cannot mask old fish, because smoke-treated tuna will turn brown long before it begins to spoil.

"Tuna Steaks" Sue T on 05/11/2018 04:21 Review: These are great. Sometimes I cook them whole and sometimes I break them up and saute' them with onions & mushrooms. Delicious.

"Delicious Ahi - with a caveat" Joe on 05/10/2018 13:04 Review: I was thrilled with the first two pieces I opened and turned into a Paleo Poke bowl. Amazing. Best texture, color, and flavor of Ahi I've ever had. Unfortunately the next 4 packages were at least 30-40% sinew and didn't turn out so well for sashimi or poke. I watched some videos online and learned to scrape the meat off of the sinew but really didn't get too much to work with. - Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are sorry to hear your disappointment in this product. Our Customer Service Team will follow up with you regarding this order. Thank you, The Vital Choice Team

Storage

  • Keep frozen at or below 0° F (-18° C). 
  • Vacuum-sealed yellowfin tuna kept at or below 0° F should retain its quality for 12 to 24 months.
  • Shellfish and lean white fish (halibut, cod) generally have a longer freezer life than fatty fish (salmon, tuna, sablefish).

NOTE: Seafood stored in frost-free freezers should be used within 3 months.

 

Thawing instructions

  • Thaw under refrigeration at or below 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius). Before thawing, puncture or remove packaging.
  • For quick-thawing, place frozen package in cool water for approximately 20 to 30 minutes, just until contents are flexible.
  • Once thawed, immediately cook or refrigerate (if refrigerating, puncture package). Prior to cooking, do not allow fish to reach temperatures above 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius).

 

Serving Tips

  • Rinse fish quickly in cold, clean water.
  • Cook in a medium-hot lightly oiled pan, under a broiler, or on the grill for 7-8 minutes — or bake 12-15 minutes at 375° F (or for 8 to 10 minutes at 450°F) — until only a small spot in the very center still appears translucent.
  • Remove fish from heat and let it “self-cook” another two to three minutes, until just cooked through to center before serving.

NOTE: It is perfectly safe and healthful to serve our fish raw or partly cooked, because flash-freezing has rendered it 100% sushi-safe.

 

Enliven your fish with healthful, flavorful seasonings such as Vital Choice Organic Salmon Marinade Mix or other herb-spice blends:

  • Lightly coat or mist your fish with Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Macadamia Nut Oil, and rub on the seasonings of your choice.
  • Or, add the seasonings of your choice to a little of Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Macadamia Nut Oil and marinate the fish in it the mix, refrigerated, for 30-60 minutes or overnight.
