Impress your family and friends with these simple tips to bring out the delicious flavour of Southern Bluefin Tuna.

Prepare your fish

When buying fresh Southern Bluefin Tuna, the most important criterion is freshness.

Dinko Seafood’s innovative super-freezing technology ensures our Southern Bluefin Tuna maintains its flavour, texture and nutritional value until you’re ready to enjoy it!

Using this super-freezing method, tuna can be stored in the freezer for up to three months.

When thawing, it is important to follow a few simple steps to ensure you maintain the quality of the fish:

  1. Keep tuna in Dinko Seafoods’ cryovac bags in a refrigerator while defrosting.
  2. Once defrosted, remove from cryovac bags and pat dry.
  3. For any excess or leftover tuna not consumed, wrap in Japanese wasabi paper, store in a sealed container and place in the refrigerator.
  4. Consume within 5 days of defrosting.

Before preparing your fresh Southern Bluefin tuna, you should always check for scales. If any are present, rinse them off with cool water and simply pat the tuna dry with paper towels.

Fresh or cooked?

The quality of Dinko’s Southern Bluefin Tuna means that seasoning or marinating isn’t necessary. You can simply slice your fish and enjoy in a sashimi, sushi or tartare dish.

If you’re preparing sashimi at home, it’s important to use the freshest piece of tuna you have. Slice your tuna thinly, or cut into small cubes and season as desired. A handy trick is to slice the tuna while it is still slightly frozen to avoid the tuna tearing or falling apart.

If you decide to cook your fish, be sure to measure the thickness so you know how long to cook. Southern Bluefin Tuna is best enjoyed rare, so you don’t want to overcook it!

Fresh tuna is delightful with a marinade and requires little marinating time (15 minutes to 4 hours is a general rule of thumb). Southern Bluefin Tuna pairs especially well with Asian-inspired flavours: think soy sauce, ginger and chilli.

Pan-searing is your best option for cooked bluefin tuna. To get the best results from this method, you want to sear your tuna piece in a well-seasoned pan (cast-iron or non-stick) on medium-high heat for one minute per side. Check out this pan-seared tuna recipe.
