The bluefin tuna belly (Thunnus Thynus), or "Otoro" as it is known in Japan, is one of the most prized cuts of this highly regarded fish.
This piece of meat with visible streaks of fat is the muscle that covers the belly on the outside. Highly valued, its tenderness feels like melting butter.
It is pink to white in color with a rich tender flavor. Due to its high fat content and distinctive flavor, belly is most suitable for sushi or sashimi.
How to cook it
It's perfect for grilling or raw in sashimi.
JC Mackintosh is the first and only Spanish Bluefin Tuna (Thunnus Thynnus) fishery with MSC Sustainable Fishing Certificate. This certificate is the most prestigious and rigorous in the world in sustainable fishing. There are only two other bluefin tuna fisheries in the world that have it. Our bluefin tuna is sustainably fished under strict quota regulations, catch standards and traceability controls. We use a fishing method that minimizes the animal's stress and we apply techniques that maximize the quality of its meat, such as the Ike Jime method.
Bluefin Health Benefits
This is a low-calorie superfood, with 25% easy-to-digest protein. Rich in Omega 3, DHA and EPA, essential fats that our body is not capable of producing. It contains a high level of vitamins B2, B3, B6, B9, B12 and vitamin E, which is a great antioxidant, and helps prevent cardiovascular diseases, promote brain function and help lower cholesterol.
JC Mackintosh bluefin tuna is served fresh, with all its natural flavor, color and texture intact, complying with all the regulations of the national and European health authorities. JC Mackintosh bluefin tuna is a reliable, nutritious and healthy food.
In any case, and as with any fresh produce, the following recommendations should be followed for its correct maintenance and consumption:
Shelf life: 7 days in the refrigerator at 4ºC from the date of cutting it.
· Always use the proper conservation technique (isolate from the air to prevent oxidation, wrapped in blotting paper or film and keep refrigerated from 0ºC to 4ºC).
· If it is going to be consumed raw or semi-raw, freeze for at least 5 days at -20ºC. In the event that freezing below 20ºC can be guaranteed, 48 hours would be sufficient.
Continuing with our commitment to transparency and regulated fishing, together with your order you will receive detailed traceability documentation that includes the date of capture, the date of packaging, the batch, the net weight, the origin of your order and all the information necessary that by law is required to be available to the consumer. This documentation guarantees that the JC Mackintosh tuna you purchase is 100% legal.
