Del Giorno Chef Kris Bunder shares his easy and simple Bluefin Tuna sashimi recipe.

Serves: 4 PRINT THIS


  • 1 piece of Dinko Southern Bluefin Tuna
  • 1 tbsp wasabi
  • 1 tbsp Japanese soy sauce for dipping
  • 1 fresh lemon or lime


1 Remove any blood meat - called the blood line - within the tuna piece. The blood line is the very dark red (almost black) meat that you will see on the edge of the tuna.

2 Using a very sharp knife, cut any dark meat away from the rest of the tuna and discard.

3 Cut the remaining tuna into 2cm x 4cm pieces, as long as the piece allows. Try to get them as uniform as possible without having too much waste.

4 Once you have the pieces, you are able to slice into sashimi pieces. Each slice should be 5mm thick and as uniform as possible.

5 Arrange the pieces on a platter with a side dish of wasabi and soy sauce.

6 Cut the fresh lemon or lime and use it as a garnish.

7 If you are not serving immediately, place in the fridge, well covered.

8 Serve within 30 minutes.
