Those who prefer to consume tuna fresh and raw can use it in sushi, poke bowls or served with other fish varieties on a sashimi platter. Mildly cooked, medium-rare tuna is also equally delicious.

We suggest removing the dark lateral bloodline from the tuna before consuming it for the best experience.
Enjoy Our Yellowfin and Bluefin Tuna Selections
Yellowfin tuna, also known as ahi, is a lean, flavourful fish great for sashimi and steaks. Our yellowfin tuna comes in two cuts. Choose from a regular steak cut or, a Saku block cut valued for its uniformity and preferred by Japanese chefs for classic presentations. Yellowfin tuna has a more pronounced flavour than albacore, but with a less fatty feel than bluefin tuna. Versatile and flavourful, yellowfin is eaten raw, smoked, cooked or canned throughout the world.
Greenwood Fish Market also has three cuts of bluefin tuna sashimi on offer. Those who want to enjoy their sashimi pre-sliced can opt for either the otoro, chutoro or akame sections of bluefin tuna. Akame refers to the lean meat on the side of the fish and is most commonly found in rice bowls or sushi rolls. Otoro and chutoro, on the other hand, refers to the fattier portions of tuna with luxurious, melt-in-your-mouth quality and are often enjoyed as sashimi or sushi.
What is “Sashimi-Grade” Tuna?
Did you know that sashimi translates to “pierced body” in Japanese?
“Sashimi-grade” is a term used to describe fish considered safe to be eaten raw. Sashimi-grade fish are hand reeled in and the heads of the fish are pierced with a sharp spike resulting in instantaneous death. This spiking is not only a more humane method of harvesting, but it also ensures a higher, fresher quality of meat as less lactic acid is produced by the fish.
