These albacore tuna loins were cut from fish landed in Ft. Bragg. Enjoy them seared, poached, or wrapped in bacon and grilled. You will receive two loins, ranging in size from 1 to 1.5 pounds each. The total weight will be between 2 and 3 pounds.
Sometimes the freshest seafood comes from the freezer. As soon as fish leaves the water it begins losing freshness. Your average fillet is several days old by the time it reaches your plate, and the taste and texture have already suffered. We use freezing to stop time and preserve the freshness of our fish. We seal our fish in vacuum bags that protect the fillets from freezer burn. We freeze our individually vacuum packaged portions quickly and at a low temperature, which preserves the texture of the fish. Most importantly, we freeze our fish immediately after it’s caught. Our fish doesn’t travel the world, it’s landed twenty miles from where it’s filleted and frozen. Thaw exactly the amount you need right before you need it, and our fish will always taste like it was reeled in yesterday.
Thawing Instructions: It is best to thaw our Frozen Albacore Tuna Loins slowly under refrigeration. Thawing slowly keeps the fish firm. Nobody likes mushy fish. Albacore loins are vacuum packaged in 1 to 1.5 pound portions. Remove from bags and place in a bowl inside your refrigerator. Allow the Albacore to thaw for 8 to 12 hours. Cook Albacore within 24 hours of thawing.
