A firm, dense fish with a steak-like texture and a rosy pink flesh that turns a beautiful ivory colour when cooked. Albacore Tuna has a delicate, but distictively rich taste and is considered to have a more subtle flavour than the other species of tuna. Also higher in omega-3’s than other tunas, it is a heart-healthy protein choice that is low in fat and cholesterol. Albacore can be seared, barbecued and pan-fried, as well as cured in citrus or enjoyed as sashimi. Short cooking times are optimal, as tuna is an easy fish to overcook.
