Getting the Best from Your Tuna

When you’re out for sushi, you’re probably concerned about freshness. After all, you don’t want to eat fish that’s past its prime, particularly if you intend to eat it raw. With this in mind, many diners look for that healthy pink coloration in their tuna, not knowing that this is not actually the best indication of tuna’s freshness.

Tuna fish is not necessarily going to be pink when it’s at its best. In fact, many places will gas their tuna with carbon monoxide to simulate the pink that people prefer. To gauge how fresh your tuna is, check the edges for browning.

You can always expect to get the best out of your fish at I Love Sushi. Come and enjoy some of your sushi favorites at our Japanese restaurant in Seattle!
