Maguro O Toro (Belly Fat Tuna)
O Toro is the most excellent part of the bluefin tuna. It is obtained from the fatty belly part of the tuna. Maguro O Toro is so soft and creamy that it literally melts in your mouth. This exceptional piece of fish is perfect for sashimi and sushi, but it is also delicious as a steak.
Please pay attention:
What makes blue fin tuna so delicious is its richness of fatty parts. This does however make it prone to discoloration. Because of this, tuna has a short “best before” date of about two weeks. Keep in mind that this is not the same as an “expiry” date, and even if a frozen piece of tuna changes color, this does not mean it cannot safely be consumed. You make it into “Zuke” (marinade). To make “Maguro no Zuke”, boil off the alcohol of some cooking mirin, and marinate the tuna for 15 minutes in a mixture of 3 parts soy sauce and 1 part cooking mirin.
