Kindai Tuna is Back
This is our first Kindai tuna delivery in almost a year for us. We got this belly portion, which ended up weighing 21.3 lbs, from Sona seafood.
Scott’s Zakuri Yanagi that he uses exclusively for tuna. Jon at Japanese Knife Imports was kind enough to have the guys at Zakuri make him this bohemoth!
Beautiful cross section!!
The o-toro and chu toro sections.
Another cross section towards the tail piece.
Here is the belly portion cleaned up and without the loin. The tuna tastes a lot less “fishy” than it has in the past. All of the scrape goes to tartare and most of the other sections will get used either for sashimi preparations or tataki.
