Tuna is an incredibly nutrient-dense food. It’s rich in high quality protein and an excellent source of important nutrients such as the minerals selenium, magnesium, and potassium; not to mention the B vitamin complex, and of course, the marvelous omega-3 essential fatty acids.
At Ocean Fresh we personally hand pick our tuna each week from the Sydney Fish Markets, before purchasing we test for freshness and avoid fish that may have any bruising to ensure the best quality tuna is on offer.
For best results, store tuna steaks in plastic wrap or place in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Sashimi-grade tuna, to be eaten raw, should be consumed within 24 hours of purchase.
Tuna can be prepared a variety of ways: poached, pan-fried, stir-fried, baked or barbecued. The firm flesh holds together well in soups, curries and casseroles and can be cubed for kebabs. Like any fish it will quickly become dry if overcooked and its rich, meaty texture means it’s excellent served rare.
