Preparation: Cutlets and steaks can be cooked by grilling, barbecuing, baking, poaching or marinating. Grilled or barbecued, tunas are best seared and left rare centrally. Highlight with intense flavours such as charred capsicum, eggplant, balsamic vinegar and olive oil dressings on a bed of bitter greens and aioli, roasted garlic, and Japanese wasabi, soy and pickled ginger.

Alternatively, prepare a baked dinner of tuna, with a herbed crust to seal in the flavour and prevent it drying out.

Albacore can also be used for sashimi and is often smoked. 

Shelf life: Best consumed on arrival or within 3 days of receiving product if thawed.

Eat tuna for your health: Tuna is an excellent source of Omega 3 (approx 0.5g per 100g) which helps in lowering blood cholesterol and maintaining a healthy circulatory system. Tuna is also a good source of vitamin B3 used for the nervous and digestive systems, the skin and the manufacture of hormones.

Suggested wines: Tuna flavours are definite, and well accompanied by medium to full-flavoured white styles and some reds.  A herbaceous semillon or vegetative sauvignon blanc will be pleasant with sashimi or grilled tuna.
