Tuna Care

Each carton of Dinko Southern Bluefin Tuna contains an akami (top) loin and a toro (bottom) loin. Southern Bluefin Tuna is special but fragile; care in handling will ensure the best eating is guaranteed.

Product handling

On completion of defrosting, the loins should be broken down into pieces three hand-widths long. Be sure to keep all pieces from each loin together.

Dry each piece with kitchen towel and follow these instructions:

Step 1

Place the tuna piece in the centre of two sheets of Japanese rice paper.

This paper is designed to ensure that the tuna stays as fresh as possible. It’s important to use two sheets of paper to achieve the correct thickness of wrapping around the tuna portion.

Step 2

Fold both top and bottom of the paper over the tuna fillet.

When you are folding the paper, think of it like wrapping a present. You want the paper to sit firmly around the tuna but not so firmly that the paper tears.

Step 3

Fold the sides under the tuna fillet.

Take your time and work one side at a time. Like with the previous step, the paper should be folded firmly but not pulled excessively tight.

Step 4

Simply wrap tightly in cling film and label each piece.

For best keeping, we recommend you change the Japanese rice paper every two days. To change the rice paper, unwrap the tuna and follow the above steps again. When you replace the Japanese rice paper, you should also replace the cling film.
