Akami literally means ‘red meat’ and it describes the part of the tuna that is cut from the top part of the back and the inside of the fish. Akami is deep red in color and very low in fat unlike Chu-toro and O-toro. Nonetheless, it is very flavorsome and perfect for sashimi and sushi. Other popular preparation methods for akami are zuke or tataki.
