Just as the Bluefin is the king of the tuna world, “Otoro” is the queen jewel of the Bluefin.
Whether you are a professional sushi artist, an amateur Japanese cuisine chef, or simply a lover of sushi, you fit into one of two categories: those who have tasted Bluefin Otoro, and those who have not. If you haven’t tried this delicacy, no words or description can give you the experience. That is how special Otoro is.
Cut from the underbelly of the Bluefin tuna, Otoro is the part of the Bluefin with the softest texture, the highest omega-3-fat content, and the most enchanting taste. The marbling on this fish is exquisite, and some compare it to the finest cuts of beef.
Once you taste our Bluefin Otoro tuna, you will never forget it.
We pride ourselves on not using any artificial methods to preserve the color of tuna. This Bluefin will arrive to you perfectly chilled and waiting your preparation.
Michelin starred Chef Shimazaki of New York City's Rosanjin uses our Bluefin toro in a gorgeous preparation that lets the fish shine - simply sliced and served on ice - it looks just like a jewel.
Chef Shimazaki has trained for countless years and it is this dedication and knowledge (he wasn't even allowed to prepare sushi rice as an apprentice for his first ten years of training!) that has led him to Luxe Gourmets products.
