Tuna

 

 

 

Raw tuna has a bit salty roastbeef-like taste. If it has been frozen, the taste will be more watery. In most countries there are plenty of shops where you can get non-frozen tuna.

 

 

In Japanese restaurants generally different types of tuna are available:

 

Buri - is mature yellow-tail tuna (Thunnus albacares)

Hamachi - is young yellow-tail tuna

Inada - is even younger yellow tail

Chutoro - is the fattest part of the belly

Buri Toro - is the fattest part of the belly of mature (buri) tuna (and the same applies to Hamachi Toro and Inada Toro

O-toro - is the best of the best of the fattest part of the belly, loaded with omega-3 fats.

Maguru - is the lean, bright-red, 'translucent' meat of the sides of blue-fin tuna (Thunnus thynnus).
