What is SuperFrozen?
Super freezing is a process that stops the natural decay that begins when the fish is caught. This process begins at sea, where fishing boats are specifically fitted with specialized freezers that store a catch immediately after the fish has been gutted and the gills have been removed. The fish then remain in these freezers during transport to kitchens in and beyond Japan. When it is defrosted, the fish revives to exactly the moment it was frozen. SuperFrozen tunas are all-natural tuna with no preservatives, and ensures the highest quality of freshness.
Superfrozen tuna is kept fresher than fresh quality while in super freezers kept at -76°F. Once it’s stored in conventional freezers (at -4°F), we recommend that it’s consumed within 7 days.

How do I thaw?
Thawing instruction is included with your order. Please make sure to follow the thawing direction for optimal result.

How long will it keep?
We recommend that you enjoy your Super Frozen tuna within 2 days of receiving it. For optimal taste it is best to be consumed within 24 hours after defrosting. If you are not planning to enjoy your product immediately, be sure to put it in the freezer straightaway. Keeping the product for more than 2 weeks will cause the color to change, as we do not use preservative and home freezers are significantly warmer than then temperature SuperFrozen tunas are kept in.

How is it processed and packed?
Fresh Bluefin Loin are sliced to size, and sealed in the only FDA approved air permeable bag for fresh fish. SuperFrozen Bluefin loin are cut to size, vacuum packed. We ship in customized insulation material with gelpack for fresh and a 3 lb-5lb block of dry ice in each delivery of frozen product depending on the weight of the fish. 

How is it shipped?
All our product are sent via FedEx overnight shipping in custom made boxes with specially designed liners to keep the inner temperature intact for frozen or fresh environment. We insert temperature strips with each package so our customers will be assured of no temperature spiking to unhealthy zone to ensure HACCP adherence.

The Majestic Bluefin… the largest of all tuna species, and the world’s most luxurious and sought-after fish.

Millions of dollars are traded in yen at the famous Tsukiji Fish Auction in Tokyo among dealers and fisherman who know the value of this supreme delicacy. But these fast swimmers are experts at evading the fishermen’s lines and hooks—thus getting a chance to experience the taste of Bluefin tuna is, for most seafood lovers, just a dream. Today, however, Luxe Gourmets is making it possible for those who enjoy luxury cuisine in America to taste any of three different cuts of the Bluefin: The Otoro, the Chutoro, and the Loin, in the comfort of their homes. The Otoro and Chutoro are the most expensive cuts—they are also the fattiest. For a lean, muscular cut of tuna that is red and firm (as close to resembling a cut of beef in texture, taste, and appearance, as fish can get), your choice should be our Bluefin Tuna Loin. Like all of our seafood, our Bluefin Tuna Loin is Grade #1 (the highest grade of fish). In the recent past, Grade #1 Bluefin was almost exclusively reserved for Michelin-starred restaurants. Today, we at Luxe Gourmets are providing our luxury-loving customers with five-star room service.

We offer two varieties of Tuna Loin: SuperFrozen and Fresh Farmed. Both products are custom cut to order by lb. Please read the product detail to see which is best for you.
