This is the Largest of all the fished Tunas in commercial use. Because of its high fat content, bluefin is especially prized as a raw product and is marketed in three grades. No. 1 “sashimi-grade,” the freshest and fattiest, goes to the Japanese market. No. 2, next best, is “grill grade.” Bluefin is the darkest and fattiest of any tuna.
The color will be nice and light, the meat firm and the flavor intense. Serve a nice red wine with Bluefin steaks
