Known as America’s highest-grade, “white meat” canned tuna. But is is much more than a canned fish. It has mild, rich taste and a firm, steak texture, with large, moist flakes. Albacore meat is less dense than Bluefin tuna, though it is one of the fattiest species, with more omega-3 than the rest of the tunas.
Albacore cooks quickly, and for maximum flavor is best served rare. Try searing albacore steaks to serve with a highly seasoned sauce. Marinating before cooking and basting during will keep albacore moist and prevent it from turning tough.
